Review: Sweet Love Remembered

For this review, I chose Sweet Love Remembered by Jean C. Joachim.  I have read other books by Jean and I loved them.  I knew I had to read this book, too.  I received a copy of the ebook for a honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
This is a short story.
The worst tragedy to befall parents is the loss of a child. Matt and Perri suffered that fate when their infant died of SIDS. Heartbreak, acrimony, and loss blew them apart. Matt went overseas with the Marines while Perri found a job in New York City. 
Five years later they accidentally meet again. Old recriminations and accusations resurface. Can they stop bickering and fighting long enough to talk honestly? Can their pain reunite them or is the gap too wide to bridge?

Oh Boy!  What a sad story!  I kept thinking what if I was in Perri's shoes and lost an infant to SIDS.  What would I do?  I know this answer-fall apart.  I know that in my heart if I lost any of my kids, I would fall apart.  There is definitely a lot of emotions in this short story: Heartache, Grief, Forgiveness, Romance, and Love.

When you are faced with a loss or something you could not imagine going through, you have a choice to make.  Will this destroy you?  Or will it make you stronger?  I know everything my husband and I have gone through since our wedding day has made us stronger together.

I highly recommend this book and better bring the kleenex because you will need them.  This was a powerful story about loss and second chances.  Perri and her husband, Matt, divorced, but can they put everything aside to find that love that has not left?  I believe that their infant son, Mikey, brought them back together.  

This book reminds me to hold on to love and never let go.  I wished this was a little longer.  I wanted to know more about their future holds.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!

Happy Reading!
