Stryder by Bonnie R. Paulson
This is an emotional and dramatic story about a love that was torn apart by time and misunderstandings. Stryder left his home town and the woman he loved so that he could make a better future for them. But life takes time, so much time that Melody thought he abandoned her, just like her mother. When he comes back to town to win her again, she's too angry, hurt and depressed to listen to him. The twist in the storyline makes their story even sadder. However it does have a very sweet and very romantic ending. Bonnie is so could at weaving a story that is both heart-wrenching and sweetly romantic.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
