I love any story that has a Beauty & the Beast feel to it. The story is about Alexandra Miller (Alex) who is a painter as were other family members before her. There is a family tradition that a member of the Miller family paints a portrait of a member of the Crompton family each generation. Alex is going to paint Leland Crompton (Lee). Lee has a disease that has altered his appearance and left him insecure about himself.

The duo meets and become good friends, who are there for one another. As they realize that they are falling in love, it is not Alex who shies away from Lee, it is he who can't believe that anyone would love him because he has some physical deformities. This is truly a beautiful and inspiring story - I will warn you - you will need a box of tissues - but I highly recommend it. Very touching!!!
