Any additional comments?

I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author.

This was such a good book in explaining how you can make your characters deeper and realistic. The process of grief in writing hadn't been something that I had paid much attention to before, but Denise Jaden shows how you can implement it within a novel both as a plot aid, character development and realistic process of actually grieving in real life. It was incredibly respectful.
