"Always, Now and Forever Love Hurts" by Sheila E. Lipsey
My, my, my what a emotional dramatic read this author gives to the reader. I will say this was one of those reads that had me on pins and needles all the way through it. At times I didn't know whether to feel sorry for the heroine [Clarye] or not because at time she seemed so lost and would not listen to anyone that was trying to help her I did find it quite interesting that even though she had polio that didn't seem to be her main problem with the men who came into her life. That physical abuse that she received from her boyfriends to husbands was simply off the chart horrible. YES, you can say that Clarye really knew what real PAIN was but in all of that will she find someone to love her? What really troubled me about this novel is that many women are really living through such 'violent experiences' and often it isn't dealt with the correct way, staying just hoping it will get better. I was so happy when Gavin came into her life. Now, I will say to really get all of this story you will have to pick up this novel and see how well this author presents it to the readers. It will definitely be one of those reads that you will think about long after the read. I will say this was a hard read even causing me to tear up at times and still this novel was well written by this author as she gives a well developed and oh so believable read that it will keep your attention to the end.
