Review: Yes we’ve seen this plot before: loved one has an unexpected tragic event and winds up in the hospital facing life and death surgery and we reflect on the would have been and should have beens, on a lifetime flashing before our eyes. But Lynley Wayne does it so well!
I thoroughly enjoyed traveling through their twenty-two years of love, from discovery of each other to child rearing, and real relationship issues. There are moments of heartbreak, sweet love, anger, misunderstanding, and forgiveness that all people in relationships that last this long experience. Hanging on the precipice of life and death was very nerve-wracking, and I could swear I felt Dan’s exhaustion. I could relate to real life events I’ve experienced as the tension builds to a nail-biting crescendo. But then we’re left hanging!!!! Yes this story has a to be continued warning!!! Ugh!
It was definitely good enough that now I’m chomping at the bit to find out the ending!!!
