Some say fate holds the cards. But what if love deals the hand? No love goes untested. Ever. Indeed, true love is left to prove itself. And that is exactly where fate steps in to play the game.

For William and Sarah, that game begins with growing up, in the unspoiled mountains of Colorado. In a time and space as clear as the Rocky Mountain skies above, these young souls together learn about life, what matters most, what endures, what doesn’t, and about love. Innocent young love moves ever so surely toward lives they both can picture, lives spent loving each other in a place they know so well and cherish.

Will and Sarah are ecstatically swept away in the swells of new love. And it is in their rarefied bliss that they make the fragile promise of first love, a promise that fate will soon rock and pound into doubt, guilt, and epiphany.

Unexpected and unprepared, these young lovers are suddenly torn apart, first by distance, and then by the far greater pressures of temptation that test the very fidelity of their heart-held promise. No longer able to console each other, hold each other, touch each other, they face the inevitable decision: move on to other loves, or cling to the faith that they will someday be together, again.
Will and Sarah stare down an unknown path, sensing destiny will not wait long before it comes to take them. Wracked with doubt, they wonder if their love was real. Caged by guilt, they both feel tempted by others intent on stealing their hearts.

Fate plays hardest when love is tested. And Will and Sarah are no exception, letting go of their happy past to embrace hope for an uncharted future. Love plays hardest when fate tests. And so it is, even through their trials of the heart, Will and Sarah never really stop loving each other. Theirs is a love so real and pure that each just wants the other to find happiness, even if it's with another.

But fate does not surrender so easily. Dealing blow upon blow, both Will and Sarah are each struck by jolting events that take them to the very edge of life, itself.

Sarah and Will hold tightly to their past, but steadfast promises begin to wane. Life continues, filled with romance, drama, and two souls yearning to understand the challenges brought with coming of age, and learning that fate is ultimately in control. What happens to love when life is on the line? Can they both relinquish control when love is on the line? Will fate even allow them to find out?

My Thoughts:
"What if your heart and your head are telling you two different things? How do I know which one to listen to?"

Sarah and Will have been friends ever since they could remember. Just when they promise to be with each other forever they are suddently surprised when one has to leave. The promise they kept in eachother heart was that they will always be together. With distance and time it became harder and harder coming to terms that they may not possibly see each other again. Now both are left with a hard choice: Do they keep their hearts reserved for just each other or learn move on and to give their hearts to someone else.

This book was placed in the 1930's -1940's. Normally I'm not into books based on the past. I didn't realized until I got into the book that it was and by that time I was already enjoying the book. This book was a bit slow at first but once things moved along I found myself enjoying this sweet and heart breaking book. I thought this book was sweet, steamy and filled with drama. I loved that the POW kept switching around to different characters it helped me connect to the characters more.  I feel that even if this book was based on the past people now can relate to that feeling. Having distance between someone you love can be hard and its learning what to do from there that people can relate to. Do you just hold your heart for the one you live far from or learn to make new experiences and see other people with different possibilities?

Oh and as one reader to another I feel like I should warn you, this book has a cliffhanger. Friggen hate cliff hangers and I was reading a bit of the little sneak peak for the next book and then when that cut off too I knew I just set myself up a dissapointment. Can't wait to see what happens next. 4 of 5 Stars!
