Oh,sigh, This book is so romantic. A love so true it spans 16 years. This is what a romance novel should be, and why I started reading them in the first place.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. Georgia Bockoven is a writer in need of more discovery, if the fact that this book is out of print is anything to go by. But it is an honor to be able to give you a recommendation here on Amazon for this book, and every other book of Georgia Bockoven.
The writing touches more than your touches your soul. This book is about the best life has to offer, and the worst. Not many writers can capture both and do so without drowning you in sorrow or forcing a suspension of belief. Bockoven manages the feat admirably.

I could say many other things about this book, but I can't think how without revealing details that are far better discovered as you read this wonderful writer's work.

So I ask you instead...think on the following questions. Remember your sense of loss after the death of a loved one? The emptiness in your gut? Remember your sense of fulfillment when you found your true love? Remember how the joy of life at its best filled your whole being?

When you read a Georgia Bockoven book, you will remember these things. This book in particular will make you smile, and it will make you cry. Everyone I've recommended it to who has read it has loved it. This book should not be out of print. It just isn't the way it should be. (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

...I don't read romance novels as a general rule. If you like romance novels, I think you will like these books of Georgia's. If you like other genres (like me) I think you might still really like this book. My friends who have liked this book are from both crowds. So, do as you will. I can only recommend, and that I do
