What if your first love was abducted and presumed dead—but then returned twenty years later?
That’s the dilemma Cole Weston faces. Now happily married to Tommy D’Amico, he’s suddenly thrown into a surreal world when his first love, Rory Schneidmiller, unexpectedly reappears.
Rory has no memory of those years. For him, it’s as though only a day or two has passed. He still loves Cole with the passion unique to young first love.
But Cole has so many questions: where has Rory been and what happened to him two decades ago when he disappeared without a trace? He has never forgotten Rory, but Tommy has been his rock, by his side since Rory disappeared.
Cole is forced to choose between an idealized and passionate first love and the comfort of a long-term marriage. How does one make a decision like that? The answers might lie among the stars…
This is something else. Sit, read and be amazed by this mystical journey!
Cole can't deal with it. He is devastated and shattered, Rory, his lover and partner, just disappeared without a trace, as if he was removed from the earth.
The process of grieving and despair is heavy. It’s almost unbearable, but lives go on and he has to start living again.
Beautiful memories pass by where they meet each other, in their twenties, where they start living together, where they are happy and in love. Both men lovable, passionate, kind and endearing.
There are hurtful, painful moments where Cole realizes again these are all memories.
Every step Cole takes he wears Rory with him.
Seasons pass by and it seems Rory has vanished forever.
Years pass by, a decade, a decade and a half, two. Time just keeps ticking.
Cole is lucky to find new love.
After twenty years suddenly Rory is back, strangely he hasn’t aged.
In a blink of a second Cole’s whole life is in a split.
This whole story was, I’m not sure how to express, exceptional, complete, compassionate, at times awfully realistic, many emotional layers can be found, all lay thick on the pages.
The mystery was well woven into the story, not prominently but still, it was palpable.
For Tommy, Cole is the love of his life. For Cole, there are two. It fit well.
While reading the blurb I anticipated a certain kind of story and was surprised by the difference from what I expected.
For me the end was perfect, even though I still had questions. While reading I already filled in the gaps and had expectations, I shouldn’t have. When I’m honest I think having questions at the end is one of the charms of this story. Read with an open mind. But all things aside, the end was perfect to me.
This author is one of my favorites, something about the style of writing always makes me emotional. All stories are written with a wide perspective, layered, intriguing, and creative. Somehow, they always make me shiver inside, not from angst, but it’s the wholeness that thrills me.
An extraordinary story, I’m in awe!

Five weeks ago my boyfriend broke up with me. It all started when i went to summer camp i was trying to contact him but it was not going through. So when I came back from camp I saw him with a young lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gave me a sleepless night. I thought he will come back to apologies but he didn't come for almost three week i was really hurt but i thank Dr.Azuka for all he did i met Dr.Azuka during my search at the internet i decided to contact him on his email email@example.com he brought my boyfriend back to me just within 48 hours i am really happy.ReplyDelete
