Review by Azalea

At eighteen, Christina Ramos meets the love of her life, yet she allows her mother to talk her into marrying someone else. Widowed fifty years later, Christina finds herself transported back to 1955 to that magical day she first meets Joe Morado.
Second chances don’t happen very often, and this time she vows to stay with the man of her dreams forever. No matter what.

…Because a love that transcends time is A Love for Eternity
It’s been said that there are no do-overs in life, as much as we’d love it to be possible. Who hasn’t dreamed of going back in time and reliving their life? Even better, what if we could go back in time and actually change what happened? We can’t … or can we?

Well, in our imaginations we can. In books, and movies we can. Not so in life. But in this delightful story by L. M. Gonzalez, it certainly seems possible. It gives us hope while reading the story. Sure, in the end we know that it is just a fantasy but what a delightful fantasy it is.

Christina has loved Joe with all her heart for over 50 years. Due to the culture and the times she grew up in, her choice of a groom was not possible. Her strong-willed mother, who ruled the home and dominated everyone in it including her husband, decreed that Christina would marry Ismael, a man 12 years older than she. Twelve years may not be that much of an age difference -- unless you’re a mere eighteen years old and your intended is thirty.

This story kept me captivated from beginning to end. It flowed easily and was very interesting. I liked when the author used Spanish words and explained them in English where necessary. Some were obvious but not all. I enjoyed learning new phrases and words.

I just really enjoyed this love story. It played to my desire to re-do some things in my own life. It played to my love of romance and in a very unconventional manner, although unrealistic, it played to my desire for a happy ending. Read it and enjoy. I sure did.
