I really enjoyed this and didn't expect this to tug on my heart strings. I can't imagine losing the love of my life or a best friend. So, following the grief of these characters and watching them slowly heal had my heart tightening often. I also really appreciated how the two young children weren't just side characters and their grief was just as important as the adults. There were many angsty moments and also sexy ones but in the end, it was the realistic emotions that really got to me.
