She finds herself confused. Is she truly over her first love? Is she making a mistake marrying Henry? Paige follows her heart, but this may be the most painful decision she ever makes. It leaves her wondering if true love is possible ONLY IN DREAMS.

My Review

This is a poignant love story of one woman and the two men she loves.  I am warning you ahead of time, you will be in tears reading this book and it will stay with you for a long time.

This is Paige's journey to understanding love, commitment, loyalty, and most of all, the redeeming quality of the truest form of compassion.

As the story begins, Paige is walking away from her childhood friend and first love, Christian.  She has tried to stay with him but his downfall into alcoholism is driving her away.

She is lucky to find love again in Henry.  Their wedding plans are set and everything appears to be going well.
Circumstances brings the three of them (Christian, Paige and Henry) into an impossible lover's triangle and here is where the story gets better.  NO SPOILERS HERE!

Paige's journey will touch your heart and mind.  In the end you will walk away with a new appreciation for life and the joy of living because of this well written novel.
