I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.
HENRY AND TOM is a heartwarming story. The characters and story line are very well-developed. This is a great story showing the love and trust of a man and whale. Henry finds Tom on the beach. He knows he has to help the whale and he calls a friend. When they get their, Henry starts to leave the whale, but the whale becomes agitated when Henry leaves. Now Tom has to stay with the whale why they try to get him back to the water. The crew attends the cuts that the whale had sustained from a shark attack that killed his mother. Be prepared to cry in this book, for it will pull at your heartstrings. It deals with finding yourself, family and marriage. This is not my usual type of story that I read, but I thought why not! I am glad I did. I GIVE HENRY AND TOM 4/5 STARS.
