A Wonderful Journey
This is a believable, romantic story that many people can identify with. The author creates intelligent characters with unique interests and tastes that I found refreshing. This is not your typical, cheap romance novel. Instead, it is a story that explores the possibilities of soul mates, the endurance of true love even when people have grown and changed over the years, and the life altering decisions people make in a realistic, perceptive way that made me want to keep on reading.Was this review helpful?

The time span over the decades was handled superbly. The 70's really felt like high school in the 70's, college in the early 80's felt exactly right, and this attention to detail made the story move authentically into present day. The characters grew with the story and I felt transported. I would read this book again, it was a wonderful journey.

This is not something I would typically pick up but I won a copy and I am very glad I did. I loved this book. It was very entertaining and insightful. I received the book in the mail wrapped in recycled packaging which was an awesome first impression that actually ties into the story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I really enjoyed the author's writing style. I found it very easy to read. The story was very inspiring and well thought out. It would be exciting to see it turned into a movie at some point!
On the surface this seems to be mostly a romance but it really is a lot more. Much of the story is about life-long friendship not just romance. There is a ton of other stuff tied into the characters as well. I really enjoyed a lot of the facts thrown into conversations throughout and thought this added another dimension to the characters. I especially enjoyed the references to reading/books, astronomy, nature vs nurture, and various medical references.
The first section of the story focuses on the main character, Gina's, younger years. I enjoyed this portion of the story as I am still in the age range I feel I can relate. Whatever your age, I would recommend sticking with this portion. It adds depth to the characters and allows you to see them grow.
Overall, I loved the story and would definitely recommend checking it out!

Kevin my military man
I think everyone, young or old, female or male would enjoy reading about the life of Gina and Kevin. From school to college, the U. S. Armed Forces to parenthood-it's all in this true to life novel with about a 20 year span. You will become best friends with the characters. It will bring memories of being a young adult, slowly maturing and then growing up! Two friends becoming soulmates! The way of conversing was always touching and compassionate along with the truth! You are missing alot if you don't read this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
