A Love Means… Story
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 dependent 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.
What an emotional book. Andrew Grey knows how to write. He really covered everything regarding getting a horrible diagnosis. Getting Cancer takes a toll on the whole family and friends, not just the sick person. This story covered it all, all aspects of emotions that the family goes through. But it reminds you that not all things turn out bad and with a little faith everything gets better.
Geoff and Eli are one strong couple. I loved how they depended on each for everything. I was so happy that family didn’t let Eli down in the long run. Geoff struggled through so much taking care of Eli and it was captured beautifully.
You’ll find yourself laughing and crying with all the emotions Andrew Grey puts you through. Once again he has written a beautiful love story.
