After her best friend and her husband are killed in a private airplane crash, Keri finds some of her friend’s personal effects, one of which is a diary. When Keri reads it, she discovers her friend had been secretly in love with another man, a soldier. Keri knew nothing about the relationship, even though she and her friend were as close as sisters.
Determined to find the secret lover, Keri sets off on a journey and discovers the key to her destiny.
I think this was definitely a unique and interesting premise for a novel. The one thing that I did notice while reading it was there was a lot of back and forth and I found myself fighting to keep up at times.
The romance was sweet and believable and the plot overall was well executed.
