I love to read this book! I think I have read it 6 or 7 times and I enjoy it more each time! It is such a beautiful story!
I really like Lonesome Dove, too!
Both books have special meaning to me.
Both tell a story of unconditional love ... a love so rare and unique with a forgiveness just as unconditional as the love itself ~ in fact, it is the forgiveness that makes the love unconditional.
I don't think many people are selfless enough to appreciate this kind of emotion... or to believe that someone can feel this much passion for them.
A selfish person can't understand it because it puts the other person first in the relationship. It's not all about them ~ it's about someone else and the fact that making that person happy is more important than making ones own self happy.
To experience this type of connection ~ true and unfailing ~ is a priceless gift!
