Book Review: Love Always, Kate

Love Always, Kate (Love Always, #1) by D. Nichole King: Dear Diary,
Leukemia’s been my life since I was eleven. Now, six years later, I want my life back. Only I’m not sure what that is.

The test results came back today. 22,000. Which means I’m officially out of remission—again.

I have three options:
1. Another round of chemo.
2. A super-new experimental drug.
3. Dump it all— forget the meds and treatments and enjoy the time I have left.

I think I know what I want.

Then, in walks Damian, changing everything.

I mean, everything.

He’s got his own set of issues. It binds us together, you know? We understand what it’s like to lose what matters most in seconds.

Still, the last thing I need is to have someone else to crush if I can’t fight hard enough. And the last thing he needs is someone else to grieve.

Never mind. I’m down to two options now.

Somehow I know that whichever one I choose, the result will be the same. With the sand in my hourglass seeping to the bottom, I hope there’s enough left to show Damian that life’s worth living. Worth fighting for.

Worth dying for.

Love Always,

Rosie's thoughts: Oh boy am I glad I was alone when reading this book as my emotions certainly overcame me. This book hit a nerve in me as I'm sure it will in everyone. I'm sure we all know someone who has or had cancer or leukaemia. I lost my best friend when we were both in our early 20's. She too like Kate, the heroine in the story, had battled cancer as a child. My tears were for her and the story, which was fantastically written. Including diary exerts from Kate and later in the story Damian. It teaches us to live life to the full and love with all your heart. I can't promise you a happy ending but I sure can tell you that it has a real ending, an ending inspiring hope and new beginnings.

I love this emotional story with all of my heart and can't recommend it enough.
