Kelley Moore had the life no one wishes for their son, but unfortunately had no choice in the matter.

Lenora (Lenny/Len) Wells has made sacrifices for her family being with the towns hot shot. She was content being with him because once she got to know the boy; he wasn’t as bad as she thought. Only then she didn’t know of the sexy new kid who would stir butterflies. Out of High School things only got worse with time and time she was afraid would soon run out if she didn’t keep him happy.
Lenny and Kelley had such difficult times in their lives that I think made them stronger and without those things I believe they may not have found their true selves. My hope for this story hurt my heart about halfway through and completely shocked me at the same time. I love this story of overcoming your past and proving to yourself you deserve better. I believe this is a story for many to read and re-read! I love the ending how Ms. Laine blew me away and I can’t wait to re-read this story over and over again. 5 stars Ms. Laine for such a heart filled read, Thank you!
