My Review
John Allen is in search of the one thing that he feels is missing in his life, his one true love. Years ago he left town to get away from his alcoholic father and also left Jessie behind. Now that he has been away he comes back to see what he can make of his life now that his father has died. The only problem is that Jessie is already married. What can he make of his life now? This story is full of pain trying to be eased and uncertainty of how to effect the easing of that pain.

    And thanks SO much for featuring my book on your site. I appreciate it!

    Again, many thanks!
