by 
Folks are dying fast as the ash trees in the southern Indiana town ravaged by the heroin epidemic, where Jaycee Givens lives with nothing more than a thread of hope and a quirky neighbor, Sudie, who rescues injured wildlife. After a tragedy leaves her mother in prison, Jaycee is carrying grief and an unplanned pregnancy she conceals because she trusts no one, including the kind and handsome Gabe, who is new to town and to the local diner where she works.
Dividing her time between the diner and Sudie's place, Jaycee nurses her broken heart among a collection of unlikely friends who are the closest thing to family that she has. Eventually, she realizes she can't hide her pregnancy any longer--not even from the baby's abusive father, who is furious when he finds out. The choices she must make for the safety of her unborn child threaten to derail any chance she ever had for hope and redemption. Ultimately, Jaycee must decide whether the truest form of love means hanging on or letting go.

My Thoughts:
An emotional attaching story, I Saw You by Amy Sorrells has depth, characters that will tie your emotions and a relevant story about the current culture told in a fiction story. The character faces choices that are hard and this book will bring you to tears. You won't believe this amazing story and you will simply love it. Ms. Sorrells handles difficult topics with sensitivity and grace. Overall, a story of unconditional love, grace, faith and hope, you do not want to miss this book! 
This isn't your typical "Christian read" and I loved it! I give this book 4.5/ 5 stars.I read this book cover to cover in one sitting. You will not be able to put it down. Thanks to Wynn Wynn Media from providing a copy. A favorable review was not required.
