After an accident lands Zoey in the hospital, her life, once again, takes a turn in the wrong direction.
Andy starts acting differently and won’t talk to her about what is bothering him. He’s distant and broody, and the closer it gets to Zoey’s upcoming vacation, the more unsettling Andy’s behavior becomes.
Once Zoey leaves for vacation, life doesn’t get any easier for her, until she begins to volunteer at a local horse ranch. There she meets Josie, a former therapist, who spent her career helping orphans. While she is working at the ranch, unbeknownst to her, Josie is helping Zoey better herself and heal.
Zoey and Andy both realize they have issues from their troubling pasts that need to be dealt with during the month that Zoey is gone, and they agree to work on them. By the time she comes home, they’ve both succeeded at putting their previous tragedies behind them and are looking forward to their future together.
On what should be the happiest day of their lives, Andy is completely blindsided by disturbing news from his past. While Andy is away and trying desperately to find out if the information he’s received is true, Zoey suspects a life changing situation that could either ruin her and Andy, or make them completely whole.
Can their relationship survive Andy’s devastation, or will their lives fall apart forever? Will Zoey find it within her newfound strength to hold them together?
We met and fell in love with Andy and Zoey in The Reason. They were such a beautiful young couple that were so much in love. Each had their share of bad luck in their past but we were hoping for a happy ever after for them. Zoey needs to spend some time in the hospital after a horrible accident and Andy is by her side her entire stay. It is evident how much he cares for her.
Zoey has had a trip schedualed for a while to visit family and she decides that the break will be good for her. During this time she meets a lady who works with horses while using them for therapy and Zoey spends a lot of time helping her out and in the process heals some of her emotional scars from her marriage. She and Andy communicate frequently and they are eager to get back to one another again. Zoey is eager to get on with her life and her love for Andy.
Unfortunately, things never go as planned and there are still some hurdles for these two young lovers to deal with. Unforeseen complications arise and make both of them truly question what they want out of live and the importance of issues that they have always believed in.
It is a heartrending and sometimes heartbreaking journey. I did not see this coming. I was certainly very shocked. Only time will tell what the outcome will be. Whether they are strong enough to cross this hurdle? Whether their love will continue to hold true or whether this latest crisis will tear them apart. I am hoping that the answers will all be revealed in the next segment of the journey. I would rate this story a 4/5.
