Summary

"You can't sort of do this, Fish. Draw a line and get on one side or the other."

Love is never so sweet as when it receives a second chance. In the sequel to her award-winning novel The Man I Love, Suanne Laqueur continues the story of Erik Fiskare's romance with Daisy Bianco. Though separated for 12 years, the extraordinary bond forged in their youth has endured. But when your soulmate has caused you indescribable pain, how easy is it to forgive? How much trust is needed to place your heart back into the hands that once broke it? How much faith does it take to ask the question, "Do you still want me?" and believe in the reply: "I still want us."

Erik and Daisy commit to creating a new life together. They are separated by geography, loyal to career commitments, and burdened with lingering pain from a decade spent apart. Yet despite the challenges, Erik knows Daisy is the best thing to happen to him twice. Slowly Erik earns back Daisy's love, as well as the trust of his incomparable friend, Will Kaeger. Both relationships grow deeper and more complex, as do Erik's ties to the past. Unexpected contact with distant cousins offers new insight to the cruel childhood desertion that shaped so much of Erik's adult life. With Daisy at his side, he travels back to his hometown to meet his people, explore his family's history, and learn about the men who wore his heirloom necklace before him.

The cathedral once torn down is rebuilt. But a love affair is never a finished thing. Life is never without its tragedies. Daisy and Erik soon face a threat more harrowing than gunfire, more sorrowful than the lost years. With Will at his back and family close by, Erik must fight for the things he once walked away from and prove his love is here to stay.

Infinite stars for Big Boy Fuzzies

"The cathedral once burned down is rebuilt. But a love affair is never a finished thing. Life is never without its tragedies." And nobody can write unfinished love like Suanne can. This book, this entire series is not just about Erik Fiskare and Daisy Bianco. It's a journey, their passage through time, starting with the Theater where a cast of colorful characters are walking with them and to the end, sitting on the dock by the lake in Canada. The book starts where Give Me Your Answer True ends. So it instantly picks on pent up passions, wasted years lie Discarded on the floor with their clothes and they get spectacularly laid.. And again. Life stumbles along with both trying to find some balance between their super busy, opposite facing lives. Trust becomes white elephant in the room. They do, but they're skeptical. She's scared he'll leave again, he's jealous of her years without him. Dancing, talking, loving, writing to others. “You can’t sort of do this, Fish. Draw a line and get on one side or the other...” Life throws curveballs but they refuse to let go of each other's hands, till one of the biggest trauma in the world slaps them in the face I threw my kindle at the wall, pmd Suanne and cussed LOUDLY!! Story also delves into widening the family portrait of Erik Fiskare. His past is dug up, relatives pop up and the puzzle pieces start coming together to complete his family picture. But I STILL can't get past the Boulder sized surprise Suanne just dropped on me.. Equally bigger lump now lodged in my throat, I picked up the book again. And the process thereafter twisted the knife a little deeper. I cried nonstop from there on, story went down a poignant alley and stuck there for a while. The growth of Erik and Daisy in Suanne's hands is truely a remarkable feat. And more significantly the bond between Erik & Will was explored and explained. To say I'm floored by the story is an understatement. I'm consumed, subsumed, underwater, completely covered with the magic of her words.

This is love

Intense, real, impossible to put down. I felt every emotion. I cried so many times with Erik and thought I would never forgive Daisy or David. I loved the maturity and growth of the characters. This is the best book I have read/listened to in years.

This series is utterly addictive!!

I have listened and re-read this series multiple times over the last few months. It's rich storyline and awesome characters totally have me spellbound. Ms Laqueuer tells a romance story beautifully interwoven with culture, history, current affairs, the mysterious psyche we all possess, along with an unbelievable love that withstood time, distance and every possible stressor known. The narrator's voice gifts us all of the passion and feels as she delivers each character's individual nuances and specifics. I cannot recommend this series and this narrator strongly enough.
