you imagine if your dreams could give you a

This is the main
theme of this book. It's about the forever love
of Kate and Patrick which even tragedy can't
The story begins
with Kate and Patrick, newly weds, starting their
day making plans for that evening. But, in only
30 minutes Kate's world comes crashing down.
Needless to say, this tragedy changes the course
of her life.
The book picks up
12 years later when Kate is rushing to meet her
friend for dinner. Dan surprises her with a
restaurant full of their friends and family and a
proposal! She thought she would never find love
again but Dan says, "I'm going to make you the
happiest woman in the world."
It's soon after
that Kate begins having difficulty sleeping. She
begins having very vivid dreams of Patrick and
another life that could have been. They are so
real that when she awakens she's confused and
wondering if Patrick is trying to tell her
something... Their mantra "I knew before I met you
that I was meant to be yours" plays over and over
in her mind.
The author tells
us "The Life Intended is the story of Kate
Waithman finding her way back to the life she was
supposed to have all along." The book delves into
details about foster care, cochlear implants,
deafness and music therapy. All things I found
interesting to learn about. Although fiction, so
many novels help to educate us in a very
entertaining, enjoyable way.
I hope you enjoy
this lovely story. Happy reading!
