What a fun book to read and so well written! I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I don't read a lot of "romance" novels or books in that genre, so I'll admit that I bought it on the reputation and recommendation of one of my favorite authors, Richard Paul Evans, the author's father. I am so happy that I took a chance on this book. I was pleasantly surprised that, while love and romance were a major theme of the book as is clearly implied by the title, there was as much emphasis on all the other kinds of love that we experience in life; i.e., love between a parent and child, love between friends, and love of oneself. The reader is taken on a journey of discovery, both of self and of others. While the book is marketed toward young adults and it is an easy read, it is in no way "dummied down" or simplistic. I believe that anyone of any age can gain wisdom from reading this book, as we all need times of reflection, introspection and discovery to find out who we were, who we are, who we can be, as well as who those around us really are as compared to who we thought they were. Lastly, for those concerned about profanity and sexual gratuity, I wanted to mention that this is a "clean" book. There is no profanity or sex which, aside from being a nice break from what has become so common in books lately, is just not necessary to move the story forward. If anything, it would take away from the story, and it is such a sweet and beautiful story that nothing should be allowed to take from it.
