I dedicate this book to my daughter, Aida. Your heart is as pure and white as a pearl. My life began the day you were born. You are my moon, and I hope your light shines on me, always. Even in the darkest of times you always show me the way. I am just like a shadow that, without your light, doesn’t exist.
To all the lovers, lost and found, to the broken-hearted, and to those strong enough to put the pieces back together. Remember, a life without love, without hope, is not a life worth living.
For much of our lives, there is a war waging in our minds, one influenced by the passion to love and the fear and heaviness of loss.
My greatest wish is that this novel scatters through the minds and hearts of readers, giving them hope and the inspiration to love and forgive. I believe that it is not the one who can seek revenge but the one that can forgive that should truly be worshiped.
For the ones who dream of
one love and one heart.
