This is the story of a young girl whose mother is older as she had her later in life and she often worries about losing her.

Although I liked the story and the premise of the book and it was well written and kept my interest, I did not like what I felt was a mockery of faith in Jesus.

Living according to biblical principles is a joyous life and nothing like it was portrayed by either Lisa, Polly, or the preachers. Jesus gave his life on the cross to save us from our sins and it is not a joke.

The book did come to a satisfying conclusion.
