Review by: Sam Batty on Oct. 06, 2013 :
I really enjoyed this story. Plot centers on a married couple who are faced with the wife's illness. The story is purely focused on the couple - there are no details about setting or era. The plot is driven by the emotions of the characters. Gets your attention right away - a decent read.

I was looking for something quick to read on a rainy Saturday afternoon, tucked up on the sofa with a hot cup of coffee and a blanket - and this fitted the bill perfectly! The story is about a couple who are dealing with the wife's terminal illness. The plot is sound and the characters are developed in a way that you do feel empathy for them. A good story for a rainy afternoon!

A retired couple that has been soul mates finds things getting rough when a terminal illness prompts the woman to force her husband to make a promise to her, and makes him lie to her for the first time in his life. As the author says it’s a quick read that will be just what your lunch break or commute needs.
