    Kathryn is a great lady and a magnificent writer. The book “The Caregivers” is one of those books that you just can’t put down! The story is so well written, that you feel like you are actually in the book. You will love this book from the time you open it to the ending of the very last sentence. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a phenomenal story!
