    I loved how they found a way to be together.
  • Not a Good Book, but a GREAT BOOK!

    I really enjoyed this book! Not often do I write reviews at least positive ones like this, but I was captured on the first words in this book as Donna and Ed would wind their way through a true romance! If I could give this 10 stars I would have!

    Well thought out characters, who are consistent in their actions. Two personalities who mesh so well, you can see they belong together. These are the traits of a love story and this book is a perfect example.
