About the Author

Dedeth Ford was born in Kagawasan, a small village in the Philippines where farming was the way of life. She grew up knowing an honest, hard day's work. The hot sunny hours spent in the field were necessary to support her family. They planted rice in a muddy field, cooked food using firewood, and had no indoor plumbing. As a working college student, she graduated with a B.S. in agriculture. Shortly after, Dedeth managed her uncle's dry goods business and worked in reforestation. She received her U.S. citizenship in 1993 and became a dental assistant. Currently, she is a certified dental assistant and focuses on her daughter's education.

Amazing story told from the heart with actual letters to and from two lovers separated by thousands of miles. They knew true love like few people will ever experience in a lifetime. Very personal account of two true loves. Very worth the read!

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderfully unique way of presenting a true love story from beginning to end. The letters that traveled back and forth between Dedeth, a citizen of the Philippines, and Patrick who was living in Colorado at the time, beautifully describe their growing love for each other. Interspersed between the letters is a series of well-written narratives that describe their long-awaited coming together in the Philippines, Patrick's return to the United States, and, then, his return to the Philippines to help with the completion of the documents that allowed Dedeth to travel to the United States with him. What is so compelling about this book is the dedication of these two people to each other as they overcame uncounted obstacles to spending the rest of their lives together.

A beautiful love story few people attain. Showing how living by values and principle has wonderful benefits. Patience for a relationship to develop results in contentment and happiness without the necessity of material needs.
