review: The Life We Dream by J.H. Glaze

Somewhere in time
I came to realize
Love never goes 
- John Barry, Somewhere in Time

The Life We Dream
Jack Bailey learns that Sarah is in hospice and only has a short time to live. Jack drives more than a hundred miles away to be with his childhood friend and the only woman he has ever loved before it is too late. 
those who are familiar with author JH Glaze's horror novels and thrillers are in for a surprise, albeit a pleasant one, when they read this story. in The Life We Dream, he takes a different direction, writes about romance instead and pulls it off successfully.  
as we accompany Jack on his long trip to the hospice, he is flooded with memories of his past with Sarah. even through the bittersweet ones, his love for her never wavers and when he finally reaches her bedside, this love brings relief to Sarah's suffering.
i thought that that was all there was to it and i was not really expecting how things turned out afterwards especially in the end. i think it was a fitting conclusion and it made my reading memorable and worth the while.
overall, this was a beautiful, heartfelt story filled with flawed characters falling in love and chasing their dreams. it was simply told yet it lingered in my mind long after i read the last word.
