Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just ok I really expected a lot more from this title and was really disappointed with the content and the writing style. I am sorry to say, it just did not live up to my expectations. Perhaps it was all the hype surrounding the title and premise that someone could love someone in that capacity that drew me to reading the storyline in the first place.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Adequate I was hoping for more with this book. Granted, it was a very easy read (read the entire book in a matter of hours), but that was because of its simplicity. I was hoping for a more engaging book, however this book fell short. It was more like the transcript of an interview, rather than a novel. It is an inspiring story, however, it would have been much better had it been written by a more prolific author.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable! I enjoyed reading this book. Had a great meaning to it. Fast paced, easy read and heart-liffting. Showed the meaning to "true love" and compassion. Even when thing are tough and going in the wrong direction of your life that you had planed, keep hope theres still a shinning light your way. It was a little rushed but like I mention was a really enjoyable book reading, and can't wait to watch the movie. To you all going through a hard time right now, read this book, nothing is as hard as it seems with hope and love you can get by anything With GOD!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not What I Expected This is such a heart-felt story, yet I didn't feel such a strong emotional connection to the people. I felt like this book was somewhat rushed and could've gotten more in depth. I'm looking forward to see the movie though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good read Wasn't what I expected-a nice, good read. Was very touching that it is a true story, and is based on these two people lives-Kim and Krickett. However, didn't realize who much religion is involved in the base story line. I really liked the fact that there are pictures of the actual couple, can then make the story more real! Would definately recommend the book!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's interesting. I am finishing the book because I bought it from Kobo eBooks. Not really my type of story as I am not religious, I haven't seen the movie, but I've seen the trailer I thought it would be more like the trailer...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great romantic story! This story has many twists and turns. Honestly, I never expected this story to have as many surprises as it did. I personally cannot related with this book because I'm not as old as the characters or as accomplished. However the story of the main character that lost her memory really touched me and made me want to relate to her. This story showed me how difficult life can be for other people. I have never experienced the parental pressure she has and it inspired me to never be like that when I become a parent. I thought this story's main theme was more about following your dreams than love. The main character had to go through a lot to get to her happy place with her husband. It shows that life can truly come full circle if you believe in yourself and your abilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For Better, For Worse. This was the most inspiring story I've ever read. A husband who sticks to his vows, a wife who forgets him but falls back in love with him and a love that you can only find once in a lifetime. I've read the book and saw the movie but they are NOTHING a like. They are far different, the only thing the same is the general storyline so if you think you don't need to read the book because you saw the movie, that should not be the case, it's a MUST READ! It was a quick read but after reading it, you will not be the same. I highly reccommend this true story. This book is the true events that inspired the movie so it's important not to get the two mixed up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Message It's really easy to lose faith during difficult times and ask yourself and God - What did I do to deserve this? This story is about a couple that doesn't question God in that way and instead has remarkable faith in His plan. Very inspirational!
