A second chance at love

I enjoyed reading this story about two people finding their way back from tragedies. through there faith in god. only had a few issues the book needed editing and didn't like the way it ended. such a inspirational story to have it end that way took away from the story.

There are times when a person goes through a horrible experience and began to doubt God. We serve an awesome God. He will never give us more than we can handle. An excellent story, I did come across a few grammatical errors.

good story plot but, VERY POOR editing!!!

I loved the character...but ALL the errors took away from the entertainment of the story! I gave it 2 stars because it really did have the potential to be something greater.
