Together for over ten years, Geoff and Eli built a fulfilling life. Their love and support helped raise their adopted son. Their hard work and dedication grew their farm from raising cattle and boarding horses to expanding into therapy riding sessions. Surrounded by a loving circle of friends, Geoff and Eli couldn’t ask for more. Until driven Eli loses his energy, and the doctor gives them the dire diagnosis of cancer.
Caught up in never-ending doctor’s appointments, surgeries, and treatments, their world turns upside down. With so many people dependant on them, they must pull together to put on a brave face, continue living as best they can, and care for their family. Geoff fears Eli, the love of his life, while a fighter, may not endure this battle, but neither is willing to consider succumbing as an option.
I still remember the first time I met Geoff and Eli, I fell in love with the kind and gentle men. They both had such purpose in life, and such sadness, despite that they made a home and a family out of the people they meet. This is the 10th full length novel in the series.
Let me start off with saying that Andrew Grey with a method writer, it’s not a bad thing, but it makes his books familiar and predictable Boy meets boy, boy falls in love with boy, boy almost loses boy, Boys get back together and live happily ever after.
Or do they?
Geoff and Eli have been together for 10 years when Eli gets sick. This is a roller coaster of a book following Eli’s treatments, his triumphs and his near death experiences. As a reader I love this book as a person with a medical degree I have to set a lot aside for this book to be believable. I found myself screaming at the pages offering different suggestions different treatments getting angry at the pages of incorrect or not well written medical information (This is why I can’t write medical drama I find myself over writing it). That being said the story is wonderful. It’s about two people against a cruel world and the love they’ve created to get them through.
Andrew Grey gives us another heart wrenching, tear jerking reminder to hug your loved ones and never let go.
