Thoroughly enjoyed this story about a young woman who, after being left at the alter by her fiance, takes a trip to Peru on a 10-day humanitarian mission to work in a children's orphanage. The only disappointment in this book is that it ended too soon!

I really enjoyed this book. It was very uplifting! It's a story about love, healing, and helping others - especially children. It's a very beautiful love story!

This was an awesome book. The realization that not EVERY where is it rosy and cheery...also what human kind is capable of....good and bad. Great book.

Truly made me want to volunteer my time to a bigger cause---and who knows, maybe meet someone just as charming.

Fabulous book, great read! I have had other friends borrow it, and rave over it also!

Love this book. About a Dr. healing from the loss of his patients and a women healing from losing what she thought was her true love. How they met in the jungles of Peru and the changes they would make because of that meeting, and thier work together to save the street children in Peru.

A quick read but a great story. The two main characters, Paul and Christine, cross paths while working on a humanitarian mission in Peru. Together they comfront their pasts and learn to trust and love again. Characters are developed very well, you feel their emotions. Truly a great story that also makes you feel as though you are in the Amazon experiencing the poverty and the orphanage first hand along with the two main characters.

I enjoyed the settings of the book. I liked the details about Peru and the orphanage. The details really took me there. The love story itself was typical. I enjoyed The Looking Glass more.

Another great book by Richard Paul Evans. This book takes the reader to Peru, to an orphanage, and into the jungle, to see Machu Pichu, and on other adventures. Love, disappointment, adventure, and decisions are all encnaptured in the story Richard Paul Evans writes about Paul, the doctor from the U.S., and one of the groups that visits Peru on a travel mission trip. Christine is a part of the group; a part of the story, too. A well-written story of a humanitarian mission in Peru.

This was such a touching book of areas in the heart we don't want to go through such as separation, being stood up at the altar, illness, accidents, etc. I thought it would be predictable, but found that it intrigued me to listen to the end, and on the last CD was riveted to my seat in the sewing room, and really didn't want the story to end.

It is kinda condensed but because of the length it almost had to be. It isn't really a "love" story but a romantic story. Two people who connect after being tossed around by life. You never know where your heart is going to take you or who will be your life partner. Excellent heart entertainment.
