Keep Right On by Julie B Day is a wonderful story of friendship and true love, involving two families and two gentle souls, and a tragedy that left everyone in grief. Julie met Paul while on vacation in Walt Disney World in May of 1981. A friendship began between the two, and their families got close because of it. Paul’s family was from the UK and Julie’s from the US and, despite the distance, both families would exchange visits every few years.
In 2007 everything changed. Julie plucked up the courage to tell David that she was in love with him while he was on a visit to the US and, to her great delight, Paul confessed to having loved her for a long time. The romance took off quickly. Paul proposed and the couple got engaged. While preparations were taking place for Paul to move to the US, his last trip serving in Her Majesty's Royal Navy would be the cause of pain to his and Julie’s family, because he got killed in an explosion.
This is a beautiful story of love and friendship, of loss, and a woman’s journey through grief. It’s a real-life story that explores the meaning of true love and friendship, emotionally charged and beguiling. One gets the feeling that Julie B Day has put her heart into this story; it is, of course, the story of her heart, and there is just no way that the reader won’t feel emotionally drawn to her. The writing is excellent and it is filled with very insightful passages. I loved the way the author explores the emotional and psychological conflicts between the characters. Keep Right On is an incredible love story with powerful lessons for readers. It is as entertaining as it is spellbinding.
