“In the end, only three things matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.” - Unknown
It was a big lie. The biggest lie she’d ever told. It reverberated through her head as she said it, ringing eerily, and the girl behind her eyes—the girl who knew the truth—screamed, and her scream echoed along with the lie. 
“Are you in love with Noah, Mercedes?” Cora asked. “I mean . . . I know you love him. You’ve been friends forever. We all have. But are you in love with him?”
If it had been anyone else—anyone—Mercedes would have stuck out her chest, folded her skinny arms, and let her feelings be known. She would have claimed him. But it was Cora. Brave, beautiful, broken Cora, and Cora loved Noah too. 
So Mercedes lied. 
And with that lie, she lost him. With that lie, she sealed her fate.
She was the best friend, the bridesmaid, the godmother, the glue. She was there for the good times and the bad, the ups and downs, the biggest moments and the smallest parts. And she was there when it all came crashing down.
This is the tale of the girl who didn’t get the guy.

I was provided a review copy; this did not influence my opinion of the book.

Compelling, passionate and heart-wrenching, Amy Harmon crafted a provocative, thought-provoking tale about first loves, second chances, and pure, unconditional love.

❝Loving Mercedes wasn’t like falling off a cliff. It wasn’t even the heart-clenching of a missed step. It wasn’t a jerk or a jostle. It wasn’t tripping or tumbling at all. It was the slow climb of a lifetime of moments, the line upon line, day after day kind of love. And it was deeper and more durable for it.❞

Did you read ‘The Law of Moses’? Do you remember the Dr. that worked with Moses in the hospital? This is his story, Dr. Noah (and it has a similar feel to that of ‘The Law of Moses’). Amy Harmon takes us on his journey. Along the way, we meet Mercedes and Cora. They would become his closest friends. We experience their tragedies, happiness, failures, and successes. I laughed and cried so many tears for them.

Where Mercedes was strong, independent and fierce, Cora was timid, shy and lacked self-worth. Two opposites who became the best of friends. Holding them together was Noah. He loved unconditionally, was unbelievably kind and giving, he loved with his whole heart, even though he’d never been shown true love at home. They become The Three Amigos.

The Smallest Part had stellar secondary characters that supported the plot like stone pillars. From the small child to the homeless person, they were beautifully and brilliantly written.

One thing worth highlighting, even though Harmon spoke about this many times, is there is a great deal more steam in this book than in her previous books. I can’t imagine this story would be the same without having had those scenes because they were necessary for conveying the feelings her characters were experiencing.

Harmon’s writing is flawless. There are no holes, there are no gaps, just pure, fresh story-telling. If you love angst (I cried a bucket load of tears) and a gripping love story (I couldn’t help but swoon), pick up Harmon’s, The Smallest Part!

❝In the end, only three things matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.❞
