In her personal memoir When Love Sticks Around, Danielle Dayney - born in 1981 to Terry and Don - recounts her life experiences and how they influenced the person she has become. Don was a struggling DJ supported by Terry, a hairdresser, until the difficult relationship finally ended. Terry later married Jim and produced a daughter named Brittany. After surviving her youth and maturing into adulthood, Danielle married Justin and the couple moved to New York where Justin became a lawyer and Danielle a paralegal. Danielle gave birth to their daughter Morgan and tried unsuccessfully to reconnect with Don. Shortly thereafter, Terry passed away from a prolonged bout of cancer. When Love Sticks Around is more than a memoir. Danielle’s story reminds us of the importance of family, love, and a sense of humor.
When Love Sticks Around is filled with excitement and familiarity, from home-cooked meals to camping trips. Danielle Dayney is a fantastic author and has created a beautiful memoir for her children and grandchildren to appreciate and enjoy one day. Danielle teaches us that there are ups and downs in all families, but it is up to us to continue these important relationships and create a future for our children. The story is engaging, heartbreaking, and poignant. Danielle shares her struggles, tragedies, and successes, making the story easy to relate to and appreciate. Growing up poor gives us an inbred value of the small things in life that matter the most. All-round, a great story suitable for readers of all ages.
