This book shows the true enduring power of love. Jack is torn between two women, one so beautiful it hurts to look at her and the other, so sweet and devout. In the end Jack learn what truly matters and they both(Rosa and Jack) learn to let the past go. During the course of this book Jack learns what it is to have honor, for the life he lived previously was without. This is a book about two young women, one so starved her father's love that she would go to any lengths to have it, the other,the favored daughter, trying desperatly to hide from her past in the arms of God. It is a story of three men. One who has two daughters and finally when it is too late learns what really matters. The other had a nephew, who, to teach him a lesson in life, consigned him to three years in Hell. And the last, he learned his lesson, but is it too late to prove himself to his uncle and aunt and to the world? This is a page turner and I highly recommend it.
