Only twenty-two and with all of the world still ahead, Kurt faces a past moving quickly over him like an incoming storm. A mother whose years of alcoholism that has left him weathered and torn. A father’s death that has haunted him from age nine. A girlfriend who can no longer handle his pain. With life offering little shelter, he seeks a sanctuary left to only those who see no escape. Granted a reprieve, he meets a new love a soul in kind. And through her eyes, he begins to see what life can truly offer. But as he has always known, what can seem like it will last forever can just as quickly fade to ephemerality. This is a love story that one only dreams of. This is a love story so much better read than ever lived.
