Smashwords book reviews by J maurice

  • Dear Martha on Sep. 06, 2013

    Being a married man i can really relate to this story. I couldn't imagine living my life alone without her. I connected with the character concerning his pain and agony especially losing his wife to cancer. I believe Edward Petty should be applauded for his ability to accurately capture the turmoil of losing a spouse to a terminal illness. I highly recommended this book.
