What can unconditional love do? The book's premise is a duck hunter rescues a day old baby in the woods in October and from that moment on a long up/down story begins, and perhaps for the first time in his life, develops a deep connection, only to have the baby's grandmother adopt him. Hyde takes no shortcuts with this novel, following the separate and then merged lives of the baby and hunter. Her characters are flawed, but so sympathetic that you like and root for their salvation, but there are no quick fixes or miracles here -- only a steadiness of commitment, quiet love, and strong belief throughout.

While the pace sometimes dragged for me, there is much I appreciated about this "quiet" story. It lets the primary relationship unfold over about three decades as the boy who was found by a hunter in the woods as an abandoned baby grows up, deals with all of his issues and keeps circling back to this man who remains an extremely patient and constant force in his life. Just as with Hyde's Pay It Forward (and probably her other books, which I haven't read yet), the themes of persistence and positivity are the winners in the end. ( )

This had a lot about boxing. THe part I enjoyed most was the relationships between Nat and Nathan. ( )

It was a quiet book. The main character reminded me of Harold Fry - and so did the feeling in the book. Just quiet. ( )

I won this book on a Facebook page called Reader's Coffeehouse. I was very excited to start it and when I did I realized I had started this book already at some time and didn't finish it. I had only gotten about a chapter in when I put it aside for some reason, I honestly don't know why .
I am SO happy I won this because I would've missed out on a really great story.
The characters were so well developed, I couldn't love Nathan more if I tried. Every word he says in the story is profound. He is someone I think we would all like to be, someone who really thinks before he speaks realizes the weight of words. I am the mother of an adopted child. I took him when he was five and adopted him when he was seven from a very terrible situation. I also grew up with brothers and cousins who were amateur boxers. So those two things combined are probably why I related to the story so well. The writing was stunning, Nathan's dialogue was fantastic and the inner struggles for all of the characters can really be felt. Beautiful writing and a fantastic story. I would recommend it to anyone!
