Softly & Tenderly is a wonderfully written, impelling, emotional novel. I really loved getting to know Jade and her mom. I felt very taken with Jade and that I could really relate with her and her struggles of the heart. I love the time her and her mom got to spend together back in their hometown back in Prairie City, such a small, down to earth, country town much like my own. Jade's voice in this story truly expresses a woman's heart in times of hardship. She's vulnerable but strong, torn but not broken, emotional but headstrong. My heart ached and longed right along with her every step of the way. I love that Jade's story is not over yet and that I will get to revisit her in the Songbird series upcoming novel.
I think this is a book all women from young adult and up could really relate to and enjoy.The author's voice is so brilliant and shines through Jade with such poise.
