Description from the publisher:
In life, there are times you are granted a miracle. It may not be the one you wanted exactly, but it will be the one you need. It will prepare you for the next step in your journey and help you learn to accept the life you are given, even if that life can be heartbreaking.


A year ago, Rye was given the diagnosis everyone dreads.  She has cancer, a brain tumor that is inoperable.  As she grows weaker, she worries about her 10-year old daughter, Em, her mother, Dee, and the rest of her family.  She tries to hide her pain and worry so that she does not increase the suffering for her loved ones. 

During a charity walk with her daughter, she runs into a classmate from high school, Jett.  They are immediately drawn to each other, but Rye resists.  She doesn’t want to burden this man with the road she sees ahead of herself.

This is a love story, but they get married when we are only half way through the book  That's because it was also a story about the miracle of life, a lesson to cherish each day with the ones you love, and a reminder to make memories while you can.  We are reminded that nobody is promised tomorrow.

This book was absolutely awesome.  I laughed and cried and then bawled like a baby.  You should have heard hubby during chapter 23.  He was making me laugh so hard while I was bawling like a baby.  - "I need to speak to that author"… "making grown women cry like little girls."  It was great!

This book is destined to be the gift we give others during their time of mourning.  Easily read.  I believe it would be easily read even when your world is falling apart.  This may be the book to help your friend find peace and believe that they have not said “good-bye,” but merely, “see you soon.”

Editing / Grammar: A – great job!

** a note:  I am reblogging this during my own period of mourning.  Cancer took my sister from us on April 8th this year (3 weeks ago).  My mind did return to this book several times during the battle as I sat with my sister during her last few chemo sessions and after hospice was called in.

This is not good-bye Suzanne; it is merely until we see one another again.
