Jelynda's life has not always gone as planned. Born with congestive heart failure, she's had to go through a few surgeries and because of her health and her fear of the unknown future, she's always held her feelings close to her heart. She's got a supportive close circle of friends and a great family but after her last boyfriend left her immediately following her last surgery, she hasn't tried to get close to anyone else since.
I did enjoy the story. But I think it could use some more editing. Some of the conversations were a little confusing because they were just paragraphs of full conversations and I had to reread a few of them to try to figure out which character was saying which lines. And while the book is mostly written in the past tense, too many times it would revert to the present. It didn't detract from the story itself, but it was distracting to the flow of the story.
The main female character's name is Jalynda and this is her story. This is a story of courage, faith, tenacity and most of all unconditional love. I was humbled by the characters in this story. Granted it is fiction but what if we had a group of friends like this in our lives. Just imagine! This reads like the author's own life story...mmmm!
Ms. Ratcliff, I truly hope there are followup stories for Jalynda's friends especially Frankie.
