Book review - Ghosts of Love by David Burnett

Ghosts of Love - David  Burnett
I ALWAYS enjoy reading David Burnett books, his writing is so easy to read and down to earth, it just flows nicely and you always seem to connect with the characters and their emotions, always an ease and a pleasure.
Richard is gearing up for his only daughter's wedding day! A time usually surrounded with celebrations, but for Richard it is also tinged with a sense of sadness and heartache. He lovingly remembers the years with his wife before she died, and feels the sadness of missing the opportunity they would have had together enjoying their daughters big day. He also has such a lovely, close bond with his daughter that he feels he's almost losing her as well. Not only that, he finds himself wrestling with the torment of feeling that he's betraying his late wife, and his daughter, against the love he now feels with the new lady in his life and the possible future that they could have. To move on or not move on, that is the genuine dilemma for Richard as he reminisces over past times with all three ladies.
This will leave you with a nice warming feeling after reading. A lovely, enjoyable read that many can relate to.

Richard McNeil has loved three women in his life.
He feels abandoned by all three.
His wife passed away in childbirth, leaving him alone, a single father with an infant daughter. His daughter, Emily, now twenty years old, is leaving, marrying and moving away. Two months ago, Kim, his almost-fiancé, the only woman he has dated in over twenty years, left as they broke off their relationship.
On the weekend of Emily’s wedding, he is haunted by his memories. The day his wife passed away plays in his mind like a video. Stories of Emily’s childhood leave him both smiling and wanting to cry. And worst of all, his recollections of meeting, dating, and falling in love with Kim almost seem real, as if he can stretch out his hand and touch her. No matter how hard he tries, he cannot understand what went wrong between the two of them, and, although he yearns for a reconciliation, he cannot dismiss the cruel things she said to him.
His memories haunt him like ghosts, and he knows he will not be happy until they leave him be. He wants his future to be like his past, and he suspects, that it is he who holds on to his memories, not they to him. How can Richard release them? Perhaps, he finally can lay his wife to rest. Surely, he can mumble the words to give Emily away. But releasing Kim might mean giving up all hope of ever being together. How can he do that?
If you enjoy heartwarming stories with true-to-life behaviors, complicated relationships, and a less-than-certain outcome, then you will love Ghosts of Love. One Click this book today!
