Truly inspiring story of love overcoming....
4 stars By Angela, Jul 01 2015
The essence of this story is outstanding.  Larissa, who had only known her boyfriend for 10 months prior to a devastating accident, recounts the highs and lows of his recovery following the accident.  Her unwavering love could easily be described as 'Christ-like'.  
However, from a literary point of view, I didn't fully appreciate it.  It starts of in the 'now', and then begins their chronological journey...however, in this, it jumps to the past, continues the journey, jumps to the now, and then back into the journey and so forth.  Had it not been for the compelling story, I probably would have given up on the book.
That said, read the book, it is hard not to apply the life lessons to one's own life.
