Wow! What an awesome story! Your heart immediately goes out to Cody, the emotionally bruised young rodeo bull rider, and Ali, the lovely young woman with a terminal disease. They find each other when neither of them was looking for "someone". An unexpected & unlikely friendship turns to love. The stage is set for sorrow. But before the end, so much is learned, shared, and so much changes, that the time these two young lovers has together turns out to be better than many who share a life together for 50 years!
Pick this one up. You will be glad you did. Be ready to cry and laugh with Cody & Ali as they experience life and love together. This story is great for adults or teens. It will truly touch your heart!
Sigh. I just finished my first read from Karen Kingsbury.
I'm not really sure how to put this together, so I'll just let the words flow.
To those who like sweet, happy romance stories and to those who are very emotional readers.. well, this might not be the right pick for you.
This was a sad, sad, SAD story. But what can we say: It's a reality. There are those who go through the same situations-- unfortunately, and I do agree with the other reviewers who were mentioning that GOD could have held a much more important place in this story, and if I may add, that might have even made the story hundreds of times better.
Well, one thing's for sure with this one :
It's Goodbye Happily Ever After and Hello Kleenex Box.
