(review request submitted by the author for an honest critique)
Life is all about choices. What to eat for supper. What school to attend. What job to take. And, whom to love or not to love.
In Once and Forever, Eden and Trace had every reason not to act on their desires. She was thisclose to taking her final vows (nun). Trace was dealing with his past and the inability to atone for all his past sins in the eyes of everyone in town.
However, the heart wants the heart wants. All I can say is thank heavens Eden realized her love for Trace surpassed her desires to take her final pledge for God and the nunnery. In my opinion, like with any calling in life, you must chose the path which is best suited for you.
Yes Trace was an ex-con but his past wasn’t so cut and dry. He had a heart bigger than the brightest star. He was generous, kind, and a man worthy of any woman! Once you start reading the tale, you’ll soon figure out how truly giving he is to those around him.
Once and Forever wasn’t a face-pace gripping tale. In actuality, it had a rather slow pace from beginning to end. However, it had a powerful message behind each word.
Like a book, don’t judge someone by their outer shell. A person’s actions will tell you what kind of man or woman they are. Make sure to always allow only good, gracious people to be a part of your story.
