This story starts out with the puppy love between Will and Amy, which leads into a more serious relationship as the years go by. As they come to the finish of high school, decisions are made as to where Will and Amy should attend college. Will’s choice will most likely take him farther away from his hometown and Amy, only a short distance.

Throughout their school years, Will and Amy have been plagued by a man named John Nugent. At one time John and Will were best friends, but a bitter argument caused the rift between them. Will moved on with his life and avoids most confrontations with John, even though Amy is the reason for their split.

After twenty years, Will gets an invitation to their class reunion but he’s not sure he wants to attend. He hasn’t talked with any of his close classmates since he got a Dear John letter from Amy and he doesn’t want to face more rejection from her. Despite his misgivings, Will shows up at the reunion anyway. The first people he sees are his old friends who make certain he knows that Amy is there.

When I read the blurb for the story Eternally and Evermore, I thought that this should be a good book. Now after having read the story, I know it is a keeper and I enjoyed learning about no matter how much we go through, love finds a way.

Mr. Nobbs did a nice job of telling of how the young people go through peer pressures throughout school and how it can continue on into adulthood. He really made the story more believable with the well-detailed history surrounding the characters and his description of their abilities to overcome tough situations that came their way.

I was impressed with both Will and Amy for finding their love for each other but a little disappointed when they went their separate ways. It took years and a troubled marriage for Amy to finally realize she still had a bond with Will that would not go away. Will turned out to be a great father, even after his divorce, and he showed a lot of courage to face down his nemesis, John, who was bent on destroying him.

Now having read this book by Mr. Nobbs, I am pleasantly surprised to know how creative he is with telling this story of romantic proportions. I have added him to my list of authors to read!
