I love love LOVED this story. It was so beautiful and poignant and the message of how LOVE comes in different guises and goes beyond skin deep was received loud and clear!! It’s a gorgeous yet heartbreaking story of how two lonely people, each for their own reasons, find each other and attempt to overcome all obstacles and prejudices to stay together and let their LOVE conquer all!!
