Yesterday was all about the LOL which, from the response and conversations I've had, is not that easy to find in fiction. Today I'd like to hear what book brought you to tears.
Many books have those moments that catch you by the heart strings, but few have the ability to grab you and squeeze til you're a babbling idiot. One book that turned me into a sobbing mess was Daddy by Danielle Steel. I'm not sure why it hit me so hard. Maybe it was just a matter of timing, having young children and not understanding how a mother could walk away. Or if it was seeing the heartbreak of the main character, Oliver. So many times men are portrayed as cold and more likely to walk away from family. Seeing a man suffer and step up when his children are suffering is moving. Whatever the reason that it hit so hard, the fact that I still remember the raw emotion is what is incredible. Even writing this post has me thinking it's time to reread this book. That is a powerful thing.
What was the last good tearjerker you've read?
