Reviewed by Maureen Timerman for Readers' Favorite

This is one book that I never wanted to end; from the beginning to the end, it was great. The story is based on a romance lasting over 60 years, and another just beginning. You will wonder what they had in common, although I thoroughly enjoyed Ira and Ruth’s long relationship, all of its twists and turns and great passion. When the story begins, Ira is in a precarious position; he lost control of his car and has gone through the guide rail and is hanging down a hill. The weather is horrible and he is badly injured, but with his life hanging by a thread, his beloved Ruth spends time with him. It appears he is delusional, but oh how wonderful the story is as they spend time with each other.

Another young couple has a chance meeting at a rodeo. Luke is a bull rider, and Sophia is a senior at Wake Forest. To make a long story short, Luke becomes Sophia’s knight in shinning armor when he comes to her rescue as her former boyfriend is accosting her. You wonder what a rodeo feller and an art major will have in common, and how possibly the two stories have any thing to do with each other. As the story unfolds, you will be amazed and love how these stories do finally meld together.
This book is a real page-turner, you will not be able to put it down until you are done and know the answers to a lot of questions. A great and sweet audio book. You will chuckle and cry.
