The author put a lot of raw emotion into this book. Her story enters a lot of emotions into this book. It is a heart warming tale, love, sadness, trials and loss. Will Linda and Peter fight and win the odds? Will Linda and Peter re-kindle a new kind of love that will sustain them until the end?
This book is a heart warming, tender and emotional read. It's not a book to miss.
