Love Always, Petra is truly an inspirational book. Petra is a world famous supermodel that has over came so much in her life. Petra survived the horrible tsunami of 2004 in Thailand however the love of her life, Simon did not. Falling in love is such an amazing, magical gift and when you loose that gift it is very difficult. Everyone can relate to Petra¿s story in some sense, whether you¿ve been in a disaster or lost someone you loved deeply. In this book Petra speaks from her heart and after reading this you feel some kind of connection to the tsunami and expertly a personal connection to Petra. I loved everything about this book, being a young women myself, I can relate to Petra. I thought this book was wonderful, in that it gave you a person and heart behind the gorgeous face of Petra Nemcova. After finishing the book I wanted to tell everyone how much I loved them, because that was Petra¿s message, live everyday to the fullest because you never know when it will be your last. Everyone needs to read this book, it might make you cry so grab a box of tissue and curl up and read Love Always, Petra.

An absolutely amazing story of this woman's incredible courage and strength during one of the world's most devasting events, the tsunami.

I read this book in one day it was a great. It is probably the best memoir you'll ever read. It's written so beautifully and really brings you into Petra's and Simon's relationship. I thought it would make me cry once or so, but I had to catch myself a few times (okay, more than a few). It really helps to put a face to the tsunami victims. Their relationship was beautiful and it's amazing how she still treasures it. This is a must read for anyone looking for a great love story.
