Profound and very important. Highly recommended. This is such an important book. I rarely read a book twice but this I had to read again. Cash Carraway is one of a kind and now my favourite author along side Jodie Vivienna.This book touched my heart and soul. It has given me profound inspiration. Very unique and addictive. This book gives me comfort and confidence. Thank you Cash Carraway. You are a true star. If I could give this book 20 stars I would. This book will stay in your heart always.
