I don't like romance novels. However, a close friend suggested I would enjoy this one. It turned out that I could not put the book down. The same was true for my 12 year old son. You can feel the characters' emotions as the amazing plot unfolds. This book is a classic and a must read for anyone who appreciates life and believes in the possibility of miracles. I loved it. We can't wait to see the movie!!!

Phenomenal! In Ms. Lanigan's 25th novel, she has written a story of courage and love. Her grasp of peace and war during the Vietnam era is fantastic. Her characters are full of heart and, most importantly, are human. I cried at the dramatic ending. This is a must read for all who are nostalgic and believe in miracles.

This is the best love story I've read in a long time. It renews by faith in true love that lasts forever and survives through any obstacle. I cried and rejoiced witht the characters. Catherine Lanigan did a great job with this book.
