The story stayed with me long after I finished the book! Catherine was my favorite character. It touched me to see such an optimistic woman bear such tragedies and not let them crush her spirit.

The part of the story that touched my heart was when Catherine unexpectedly had something very special be returned to her, something she’d selflessly given up decades earlier.

This deeply moving story has reminded me to not let difficulties in life hold me back or bring me down. Any Hallmark enthusiast would love reading All That I Had.”

This beautiful and inspirational story was so interesting for someone my age. I found myself not wanting to put the book down as I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next!

My favorite character, Catherine, was such a picture of perseverance and determination. She sacrificed so much but her strong faith made all the difference in how she faced these challenges. The impact of the story made me think about my priorities, cherishing my family and my wife as much as possible.

My parents, grandparents, and many members I talk to on a daily basis would enjoy reading All That I Had. I hope this wonderful story reaches as many people as possible! I loved reading the book and have given it a home in my library.
