It is the story of the author's beloved parents and their true love at first sight relationship. It is adventurous and exciting with twists and turns that will leave you in a complete state of excitement to read more. It will shift the reader's emotions as often as the pages are turned. It is set in a time that was often filled with the hardships and obstacles that would test one's ability to move forward in life and prosper. It is a love story that begins in a triangle right from the start. It tells of two young people trying to overcome all obstacles life throws at them while trying to raise their children and run a family-operated business in a small town. Filled with raw emotion, true love, sorrow, grief, and happiness, the story will make the reader laugh, cry and experience heartache for the characters they read about. Filled with scripture and inspirational words, this book will fill readers with strength and faith in the lord as they read about this young couple.

As I was reading and becoming engulfed in the story I began to feel a sense of true compassion as if I was a character in the book itself. As it is filled with an overwhelming amount of raw emotion, I found myself stopping reading every now and then to regain my own composure. This story truly touched my heart. I am grateful to Linda Dunlap Hulen for sharing this magnificent story.
