Unconditional Love: 7 Days Series #2
By Andrew Grey
In this series, Andrew Grey is proving that just 7 days out of a person’s life, sometimes those days are years apart, can change a person’s life course and set them on a different path.
In this one we have Donald Pettier and Jason Greene, two more unlikely friends you couldn’t find. Donald Pettier is from the Chincoteague Islands in Virginia. Jason is one of the summer visitors. They meet when Jason saves Donald from the town bullies. Donald teaches Jason the art of crabbing, and his mother fixes them crab cakes. Then Jason teaches Donald about video games, and they share their first kiss.
The next summer gave Donald and Jason two life changing days, then it was five years before they saw each other and their life’s were set on a different course. Through this Donald had loved Jason through the anger, and feelings of betrayal, Jason had always remained his first love, and he Jason’s.
Five years later, Donald is at the oncologists, he had cancer, and his doctor’s new intern was Jason. They had a beautiful night and made a commitment. When Donald awoke, Jason was gone… and he didn’t have his number. Three weeks passed and he hadn’t heard from him. He mentioned it at his next appointment only to find out that Jason had responded to an emergency beep and got into an accident. He had been in the hospital in a coma for three weeks. When Donald reached the hospital, Jason had woken up, but he couldn’t remember anything. Slowly through the day, Donald showed him bits of their life together, and Jason started to remember until finally it had all come back.
A year later all of Donald’s chemo treatments were over and they were back on the Island again. Seven life changing days over half a lifetime that shows how love endures and changes as people change and adapt. A beautiful story that wrapped me up in warmth and kept me moving from one chapter to another, I had to know what happened! Mr. Grey you have done it again. Taken us on a journey that it takes time to recover from; a rollercoaster of highs and lows, love and hate, anger and forgiveness the whole gambit of human emotions. You get to knows these people so well that you cry for them, laugh with them, cheer them on and hope against hope for that happy ever after that Mr. Grey never fails to give us, but keeps us guessing about in this one. Another five star rating for you, a must read for anyone that loves tales of love and how people interact. Unconditional Love shows itself in so many ways in this book between so many people, a true joy to read.
