FROM BACK OF BOOK
North Carolina native, Cisely Matthews has seen and suffered much in her twenty-two years of life, and she has the scars to prove it. When amazing blessings come to her, she wonders if she will ever feel worthy enough to deserve them.
Australian-born Ingo Kelly is thrown for an emotional loop when he visits his aunt in Utah and meets Cisely for the first time. He falls for her hard and fast. But getting her to accept his love is a challenge he is more than willing to take on.
Adagio St. John is Ingo's best friend and the two are as close as brothers. When Adagio travels to Utah from his home in Italy to attend Ingo and Cicely's wedding, he is overjoyed that his friend has found happiness with such an amazing woman. He hopes he can find the same happiness one day and end the loneliness he struggles with on a daily basis. There are prospects aplenty, but none of the shallow beauties can capture his heart.
When love does finally come to Adagio, will he allow himself to embrace it or continue to go it alone?
We are told that trials help to make us stronger, that we have to go through pain to really savor the experience of joy. I have known this for a long time, but I now know something else. The strength that comes from those trials is actually faith refined; the joy that comes after the pain, celestial favor.
Cisely St. John's journal
Beautiful Cisely Matthews' life has been a life full of tragedy from the day she was born. She is raised by an alcoholic mother and an abusive father. She has feelings of loneliness and doubts her self-worth and this is only reinforced everyday of her life until age 12 by a father who daily physically and mentally abuses her.Read more ›
A plodding mess of bad grammar. It reads like a a paper one would produce for a literature class back in high school.

It is so hard to accept oneself when our entire life we have been told we aren't worth anything. This is a beautiful book that teaches us that we can all change and forgive ourselves for the things we have done in the past and forgive those who have wronged us. No one is perfect and we all need to forget and move on. Great writing.
This is a story of a full lifetime of commitment and it was very refreshing. This is a great value as well. It is very true to what we live thru in this real game called life. I hope you will take to explore a really unique and different approach to an IR relationship.
