Possibly the most depressing romance novel I've read. It was very well done, and the romance was realistic and it didn't flinch from their issues like many do - this really dug in.

Janice Kay Johnson is the author of sixty books for children and adults. Her first four published romance novels were coauthored with her mother, also a writer who has since published mysteries and children's books on her own.
