I love this story. It was a quick read and I thoroughly enjoy this story. It was predictable but that didn’t take away from the story as far as I am concerned. I choked up at times and smiled at others. I loved the plot also. I loved how Marco changed his whole way of thinking and his life for the woman and child he loved. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend.
