Not having any idea what to expect, I was so moved, overwhelmed, informed and humbled by this lovely story. What an amazing way to learn about the intense challenges of the handicapped, to experience a non-tradional love story, to learn about everything from professional volleyball to life in Italy and to gain the gift of gratitude in a whole new way. I believe you will think of your life a little differently after reading this book.

This is a great book if you are interested in a love affair which transcends what is usually portrayed in the venue of "He/she is not really into me" and the like. Hidden here are glimpses of what love can be.

Even more interesting, however, is the inspiration to become a courageous warrior when faced with fear, to engage in life and hope when all seems lost, to learn to live and love.

The author also is a warrior in trying to share with us her love story with a quadriplegic. She does not make it a story about herself. Instead, she proclaims each fumbling word which tries to utter what cannot be said, the transformation of a man who learns to appreciate and enjoy life in spite of all its tragedy and sorrow. In short, it is a story of suffering and joy and the freedom we have to choose.

A beautifully written story delving into a world that most of us know nothing about- the life of a quadriplegic. Kirk was no ordinary man or quadriplegic. He lived an amazing life full of accomplishment and joy, and Belinda clearly was a major part of that joy. Their story is both inspiring and very loving, but also wrought with constant enormous energy from both of them spent overcoming obstacles that the rest of us hardly notice. You will love getting to know Kirk for the incredible man that he was, and Belinda for the loving and amazing role she played in his life. Writing this story in the intimate way that it is done, took great courage.

I had heard of Kirk but didn't know any details about his accident or his life after it. Ms. Begley does an outstanding job of sharing his story, but she is just as heroic as he was. It truly is a love story between two incredible people.

This is a detailed story of how life can be lived successfully even after a tragic accident. These two were lucky to have found each other, and there are many lessons to be learned from how they shared their lives together.

I enjoyed reading this heartwarming and intimate account of Belinda and Kirk's time together. Kirk's positive attitude and struggle with adversity is inspiring. Thank you Belinda for sharing your story with us.
