Reread from many years ago. It's not all PC and it's an LDS read, but I love it.

This is the story of Mallory, the daughter of Colin and Janna Trevor, characters in a previous book by Anita Stansfield. Mallory has every reason to believe that her life is close to perfect. with a temple marriage to Brad and a darling toddler, she's living the LDS dream. Then, one dark night, a single self-inflicted gunshot ends Brad's life and shatters her world. Mallory struggles with feelings of guilt as she tries to understand how this could happen.

This one deals with some pretty heavy stuff, and it really gave me a new perspective. I had to kind of go woah as I read this book so soon after reading Black Like Me, Stansfield addresses the issue of inter-racial marriage in a way that is quite uplifting, and very eye-opening. It made me think of the challenges that some of my freinds in that situation have probably had to face, and will probably still have to face each and everyday.
I really enjoy how she can address things that happen in a l

I love the Trevor family. I learn a lot by how they deal with life's horrible challenges (pornography and suicide). In this story, Mallory, the youngest Trevor daughter, becomes a widow with a young daughter and pregnant with her second. She deals with the tragic loss of her husband and miscarriage with a great deal of help and love from her family and sincere prayer. She amazingly has no prejudice whatsoever when Thomas, who is black, wants to romantically date her, falls in love, and asks her ...more

I didn't particularly like the storyline, but more than that, I had a hard time connecting with the main character. I never could really sense what she was feeling, especially in what was supposed to be the romantic storyline of the book. I was also disappointed in the ending. The characters that help bring about the story's resolution weren't even introduced until the last couple of chapters. I felt it could have been set up much better.

I particularly loved this one. It deals with some very sensitive issues that are very real and very hard to deal with for a lot of people. But the characters do a wonderful job of overcoming their trials and I just loved the characters themselves in this one. I think this was the first of Anita's to have a couple like this in one of her books. Was pleased with the outcome.
One reason I really like Anita Stansfield's books is that they take on real-life issues. This one gives insight into pornography, suicide, and inter-racial marriage. I think the inter-racial marriage part could have been better developed by having someone Mallory was close to share some objections to overcome, but I still liked it.

Picked this book because I saw it was about a spouse who committed suicide. It was interesting, but I think Anita Stansfield was trying to tackle too many issues in this book: suicide, pornography, interracial marriage, etc.

I really liked this one because there were always lessons that were learned. Sorrow played a huge part in this book, and then when a man came into this woman's life, he had made a great impact on her life and fell in love with her in the process. I really loved it.
For Love Alone is an extraordinary novel that will touch and move you on many different levels. As you come to know its memorable characters and their unique challenges, you will understand how the power of true love overcomes obstacles and changes lives for the better.

After dealing with the consequences of adultery in a temple marriage Anita sets her next book on-not just one but TWO controversial subjects-pornography and interracial marriage. Gosh, I miss the good old days when Deseret Book allowed such shocking publications by their authors.

was a little depressing for the first half of the book. Some of the authors desciptions of emotions were a little over the top for me.

I love all Anita Stansfield books. I learn something about having faith through trials, from each book that she writes.

I sometimes feel that the author tries to pin too much tragedy to one couple or family. It can be tiring to read.

This book deals with overcoming some serious issues--such as a husband comitting suicide, racial differences and coming to terms with some religious commitments. I really enjoyed this light read.

While I did enjoy reading the entire series of First Love, and Forever, the stories in the series as a whole are easily forgetable.

Seemed long-winded, more like "and then This happened, and then This happened" than a story with a central point. I was bored reading most of it, and parts of the book left me rolling my eyes.
