With each new twist that’s woven into the plot comes a new revelation about the heroine’s past, an element of suspense that makes it difficult to put the book down. Similar to a Nicholas Sparks novel, but uniquely different, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love is a thought-provoking, emotional read that, among other things, might even have you yelling at the main characters at times. Unlike your typical fairytale romance, the characters in Sand Dollar have real-life issues that must be dealt with. As in real life, things rarely go according to plan, and all too often it’s the ones we love the most who end up hurting us the most. A mixture of joy and heartache, this realistic portrayal of life is what sets Sand Dollar apart.
When the story opens, Noah, who is old and sick in a hospital bed, tells of his undying love for his soul mate, his one true love, Robin, who also happens to be the one who got away. The story is told from Noah’s point of view with two timelines: when he’s old and when he’s young. Eventually, these two timelines intersect with a surprising plot twist, and the story moves forward from there with the most beautiful of endings – an ending that you’ve just got to read for yourself.
