's review

it was amazing

I've no idea what to say. It's just so bitter sweet. It took my breath away. An excellent story of love, heartbreak, first love, realities, disappointment, finding identity, courage, bravery, cowardice, hurdles in life, dreams shattered, love found anew, dreams realised and everything in between of these. It has everything that happens in a person's life.

Mattie is a normal person. Just like any other person living a modest life. Her wedding is coming soon and she is beyond happy. Though John seems a bit off from a few days still Mattie just thought it was his work pressure. John is Mattie's perfect man. Yet, it seems he is not so perfect after-all. Mattie's whole world comes crashing when a letter arrives one day... it has evidences pointing to the fact that John had an affair and now that person is having his baby. Not only that Maria is now dead along with his baby. Mattie is destroyed. All her hopes, dreams goes up in flames.
She is heartbroken.

Helen is a carefree spirit and Mattie's best friend. She is her anchor. Yet, her new boyfriend creates an impenetrable wall between them. After Helen's marriage Mattie never hears from her again.

Then there is Graham. Mattie loved him but he never did. He strung her along but he never said he loves her. He is incapable of loving her yet he is not above taking advantage of her feelings for him.
Along the way, there comes several Characters who at first seems to become her friends and sometimes even lovers but as she grows attached to them , they desert her.
Mattie had had enough. She is not a toy to be played with whenever they want and then discarded. Frustrated and fed up with her life she leaves town. Only to fall in love with a lanky guy with a dog. He is the farthest person from her 'perfect man' type.

But Mattie is undeniably falling for him and maybe he is too if his behaviors are any sign. But there is a big problem. Mark is Maria's brother.
When revealed will this tear them apart or make their bond more stronger?
Mattie is convinced that she is not supposed to find her happiness in this life. She is destined for loneliness. She has even gave up on hoping that Mark will turn out to be something more than friend.
It seems everyone she starts caring about ups and leaves her in the dust.
Mattie is sure that Mark will be no different either. But what if she is wrong?
Can she start hoping again?
Will she be achieving her happy ending after-all?
