"I saw that everything going on was tied up in a knot that held this at its center—'I'm not what I wanted to be.' "

It's been ten years since Joshua Rivers had his dream of the girl he believes he is supposed to marry, and she's still nowhere in sight.

First, in the interests of openness, I have to say that I went to school with Ben, keep in touch with him, and think he's a very interesting and fundamentally good human being.

Also, Josh turned out to be treacherous in his relationship with Renee. Maybe, his long-term lover, Lily, influenced him a lot in a negative way. Moreover, there were evident struggles against societal problems and constant fighting for Josh’s dream of finding his destined love. I commend ...more
