Kyle is helping his dad run his lawn care business, Julianna sees Kyle talking and visiting with her
brother, he is so caring and kind. She feels an immediate attraction to him. Kyle is studying to
become a priest, and having a relationship with Julianna is out of the question. They gradually begin
to fall in love.
The love story of these two is heartwarming and heart-wrenching at times. You grow to love
these characters, they are good, solid, family driven people. The author tells their stories, weaving the past with the future. I loved the character of Julianna, although I didn’t always agree with her decisions, she is a true person, with convictions, she’s a good friend, a good sister, a good
daughter, an altogether good person.
I also love Kyle’s character, he is kind hearted, talented, honest, hardworking, loyal and an
altogether good person.
I like how the author took you into another time, going from the past to the present. I read way into the night, I was worried for Julianna and Kyle, life had kicked them both around a bit. I was really sad that this novel ended, I grew very attached to these characters and their stories.
This novel has it all: family drama, history, friendship, sadness, beginnings and endings, loyalty,
forgiveness, but most of all, love and happy endings. This is a great debut novel, and I look forward to her next novel. (less)
