They say time heals all wounds.
What a load of bull. It’s been four years, and Kate’s voice still echoes in my mind.
Every. Damn. Day.
I numb her memory when it taunts me. In college, I drown her out with booze and easy lays. I can’t do what she asked.
I can’t let her go.
Not even when Lia shows up, freaking ripping what’s left of me to shreds. Caring about someone isn’t worth the deadness that follows after they’re gone. I didn’t ask for this. Didn’t ask for her.
And I sure as hell didn’t plan to miss her when she walked out of my front door.
Now, if I want to keep her, I have to straighten myself out and earn her. I can’t screw this up.
Because if I do, I’ll lose more than just Lia.
I’ll lose my life.
Born and raised in Iowa, d. Nichole King writes her stories close to home. There’s nothing like small-town Midwest scenery to create the perfect backdrop for an amazing tale.
She wrote her first book in junior high and loved every second of it. However, she couldn’t bring herself to share her passion with anyone. She packed it away until one day, with the encouragement of her husband, she sat down at the computer and began to type. Now, she can’t stop.
When not writing, d. is usually curled up with a book, scrapbooking, or doing yet another load of laundry.
Along with her incredible husband, she lives in small-town Iowa with her four adorable children and their dog, Peaches.

And, as I mentioned, my 5 star review for Love Always, Kate
I knew this wouldn’t be an easy read, but I was very drawn to it regardless. Absolutely beautifully written story of cancer, love and loss.
This is Kate’s story, starting at age 16 when she is told she is no longer in remission from ALL, the form of leukemia she has been fighting since she was 11. Much of the book is her diary entries, a process she started with her first round of chemo. This being her third go around she knows all about what she is in for physically, and the look inside her soul is heart wrenchingly realistic. You will feel her hopes and her fears, her joys and heartbreak, her feelings of invisibility, and her acceptance.
Damian Lowell is the handsome son of her oncologist, 18 years old, and troubled. Forced to volunteer on the pediatric cancer floor because of his outrageous behavior since the death of his mother and older brother in a car accident two years earlier. In many ways this story is his as much as it is Kate’s. I couldn’t always understand his behavior, and certainly couldn’t condone it for many reasons, but it is also told in a real and soulful way.
I can’t remember when, if ever, a book has made me cry as much as this one did. At times I had to stop for a minute or two because my vision was so clouded by tears the words were too blurry to read. But in spite of it all, it is a beautiful story. I vow to find the beauty and hope in sunrises now.
Looking forward to see where Damian goes from here!
