Publisher's Summary

Brad Cutler, 28, is a rising star at his New York ad agency, about to marry the girl of his dreams. Anyone would agree he has it all - a great career, a beautiful and loving fiancée, and a fairy tale life ahead of him - when memories of a high school girlfriend begin to torment him. Lost innocence and one very difficult choice flood his conscience, and he is no longer sure what the future will bring except for this: he must find his old love and make amends. Haunted by the past and confused about the future, he turns to God seeking forgiveness and redemption.

too much

This book had a lot of promise but it was just TOO MUCH, too much crying, too much sobbing, too much, too much. I usually enjoy Kingsbury and the premise for the story is good but her writing was just dragging on the points and everyone was SOOOOOO sad and depressed about everything and it really wasn't one of her better books.

I will attempt to make this short and sweet by simply getting straight to the point. Don't waste your credit. The idea behind the story is good, but it could of been written much better. Instead of taking 10+ hours, this story could of been told in half that time; it just went on and on. I got half way through it, listened to the last chapter and that was enough for me. Without spoiling the story too much, I found the characters to be less than realistic in their approach to problems. I don't want to minimize the seriousness of the theme but, please!!!!! Also, Brad, the main character, inability to formulate his thoughts and his constant hesitation made me want to puke. The narrator was good, but the story was not. This is not Mrs. Kingsbury's best, if you are listening to her books for the first time, try the Sunrise series or the Redemption series or any Terry Blockstock book. I think three stars is more than fair for this book.
