WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG
by Pamela S. Williams
Just as John realizes he loves Lainie, he is diagnosed with malignant melanoma. What they learn about themselves and each other through his treatment and recovery makes them see they’ve wasted too much time already. Life is really all about living it up, celebrating the joys and sweetness of life while they can—together.
Another great book by this AMAZING author!
We were given a brief touch of Lainie and John's story in the book Living It Down-- and at the time I so wanted to know more about them and could just see them truly getting together.
How pleased I was to get a whole book about them :)
Their stories are parallel and beautifully blended all at the same time. They are both older and a little settled in their ways, wanting love in their lives-- just struggling to let go of some past issues.
Some of which is cancer--
Lainie is now 5-years cancer free, but now John has been diagnosed with it.
Can Lainie help John?
Will John let her?
Can their hearts heal as much as needed?
A VERY WONDERFUL READ!
As the author says "If you like a grown-up love story, you'll like this book."
The most interesting fact about this book is that the author herself was diagnosed with cancer the very day this book hit the shelves-- You can read about her journey on her blog: http://pamwrite.blogspot.com/
