Wow! What an awesome story! Your heart immediately goes out to Cody, the emotionally bruised young rodeo bull rider, and Ali, the lovely young woman with a terminal disease. They find each other when neither of them was looking for "someone". An unexpected & unlikely friendship turns to love. The stage is set for sorrow. But before the end, so much is learned, shared, and so much changes, that the time these two young lovers has together turns out to be better than many who share a life together for 50 years!
Pick this one up. You will be glad you did. Be ready to cry and laugh with Cody & Ali as they experience life and love together. This story is great for adults or teens. It will truly touch your heart!
Sigh. I just finished my first read from Karen Kingsbury. I'm not really sure how to put this together, so I'll just let the words flow. To those who like sweet, happy romance stories and to those who are very emotional readers.. well, this might not be the right pick for you. This was a sad, sad, SAD story. But what can we say: It's a reality. There are those who go through the same situations-- unfortunately, and I do agree with the other reviewers who were mentioning that GOD could have held a much more important place in this story, and if I may add, that might have even made the story hundreds of times better.
Well, one thing's for sure with this one : It's Goodbye Happily Ever After and Hello Kleenex Box.
Some people think that all books have happy endings. Anyone that believes that should not read this book. You will get very emotional with this book and you shouldn't be ashamed to show it! It is very sad, but a wonderful read. You will definitely be touched by this book!
I am absolutely in love with this book, i am quite a horse lover and one day i picked this book up off my Grandma's book shelf and started reading it and never could put it down. Now it is my favorite book to read and i can never get tired of reading it. I just now went and bought it for two ladies in my church for Christmas and they absolutely loved it, i tell everyone about this book. It is an amazing story and Karen Kingsbury has such a way of writing that touches peoples hearts. i know that this book touched my heart when i read and i would encourage anyone out there to please read it! There is not another story out there like it. You can go from smiling to crying in the book and it is such a inspiring and heartfelt book that i know that you will enjoy it.i Give this book the highest star rating possible.Thank you Karen!

I loved this book! I could barely put it down towards the end and there were a few nights where I fell asleep reading it. I haven't read any Karen Kingsbury books but I really enjoyed reading it for my allied health honors english II class.
Actually, I read this book some years ago - before I recognized the talent of Karen Kingsbury. However, I read the book again when I received it and highly recommend it (as well as anything else written by Karen Kingsbury) to anyone who enjoys reading Christian fiction.
A beautiful story that held me spellbound from the beginning. The only thing that would have made it better would have been for Cody and Ali to find the peace that only salvation brings. I was so disappointed that the plan of salvation was omitted from this book, when it was so appropriate to the themes of forgiveness, peace, and abiding love.
Wow! Another one from Karen Kingsbury that made me cry. This one was different, it didn't have scripture woven through it, but the underlying message was there. It was typical Kingsbury with love, drama, and human feelings permeating the story. Faith, hope, and love abideth, and the greatest of these is love. What a great story of love and the sacrifices of those who truly love.
Anything that Karen Kingsbury writes is always good. I'm hoping to build my library with all of her books. Each one is more enjoyable than the last. She and Lori Wick are tops as far as I am concerned.
Good book. Amazing story. I was surprised that the underlying Bible theme wasn't as prominent as in other Kingsbury books. You'll just fall in love with the characters. The storyline is similar (in a way) to the movie, A Walk to Remember.
