Ok I love my corny sweet you know how it ends romances when I am feeling down but this was not it This was so so much Sex and the copy and paste make you feel happy is NOT what the author uses to draw you in No this story has depth and diversity There is culture and hardships There is thick plot and history It was able to draw me into the lives of the couples and their working to make it all work One couple, Marina and Yakoda, was set during the Japanese invasion of the Philippines in the 1940s [...]
