This is such a beautifully written book with a touching message to everyone of different cultures and religions The story of Ruth and Nathi proves that Love is special, they had their hardships and good times Each and everyone of the other characters were very interesting people and played their part in me not wanting to put the book down until the end Stewarts heart and soul went into this book and I am now looking forward to reading the next one.Myrtle Levitt


    4. Beautifully written, Stewart has done a great job when he indicates this young love story struggling to stay alive when Nathi and Ruth, who are main characters, came from different worlds to face all the challenges to keep their love everlasting In this novel there are different themes such as multicultural, parent control, love, determination, and sacrifice I really recommend this novel strongly It is one of those books we keep in our home library Thanks for this great debut, Stewart
