Rich girl meets rich boy; love at first sight. They develop businesses and social contacts, which leads to a life of luxury and a youthful feeling of invincibility. A high-risk social venture destroys the physical abilities of the man and leaves his wife and son to pick up the pieces.

Donna really captured the loving and scary moments throughout her life and brought them together to form this story, the tale of her life and her sons. This is definitely a must read, from start to finish it was very hard for me to put this book down.
