Patricia has never experienced true love. She is looking for a great
love that she can share her life with and has never found anyone who felt like forever. She has decided that, perhaps, if she stops looking for love,it will come to her. She needs to consider her feelings and the place love would occupy in her life.

Rob’s whole world is centered around his 2-year old son Alan. He is happy in his marriage or at least he thinks so. He has never doubted his relationship with his wife until she left to visit her family. Now he is not so sure about anything and thinks he may have found someone else.

College is the last place Patricia would have thought she would meet the right man, but once she met Rob her whole world changed. Her world is turned upside down with her strong feelings about him, especially when she learns
he is married. She feels unsettled needs to understand her feelings and to decide what she to do with the relationship. This journey is one every woman takes at some time in her life.

Patricia is the story of most women in this country. She wants to have it all but knows that sometimes that cannot be. This book shows how to keep going no matter what happens. Ms. Owen does a wonderful job of telling a story that the reader can relate to easily. I enjoyed it for the fact that the characters, although not perfect, are filled with life.

 After going through numerous relationships and suffering the pain and disappointment when they failed, Patricia decides to walk into each new relationship with fresh eyes and no comparisons. When taking a nursing class, she meets Rob, a fellow classmate. Though he’s married, they begin a relationship and a journey on a long hard road together, which would end in both of them taking separate routes. Patricia learned some important lessons along the way, though they wouldn’t come into play until years later. Patricia marries someone else, all the while carrying a torch for the man of her past, though he has shown that he no longer wants a relationship.  She let this get in the way of her current marriage, until one day, she goes home to attend her high school reunion. She finds out something while she’s there that makes her stop and take a look at how she’s led her life. After that, Patricia goes through a scare that makes her seriously regret the way she held back some of her love from her husband.

  This book made me think of my own past relationships and how you really can get stuck in the same way. It also made me look at myself and how I can change some of my own thinking about relationships.

A Love That Never Dies by Penny Owen is a wonderful book that carries a hidden message. Unconditional love is to be appreciated and cherished. As we travel down life’s journey, we met many people that touch our hearts. Some of these people will remain in our hearts and some will be forgotten soon after we met them. However, very few people will capture our heart and our soul. These special people change our lives just by knowing them. They help to mold us into the person that we will become. We are blessed by their guidance and should always hold them close to our hearts, no matter what path that we take in life. This book is a wonderful read that will have you in the end reminiscing about the very special people who have touched your own heart and soul.

Penny Owen's "A Love that Never Dies," due for release in August of 2007 is a touching story of love, loss, and the changing quality of relationships. This delicately-told story considers not only the main character's view point, but touchingly, the main character expands her own feelings, to consider and understand the emotions and entanglements of others. This is a uniquely insightful study of the twining of human relationships; their power to uplift, as well as to harm. The author also considers love; qualities of love, relationships, from friendships to committed love. The quality of the emotion itself, its value to help and to harm, is as much a part of this story as any of the human characters. This novella stands apart from any easily defined genre, but has a sweet appeal readers will not want to miss.
Favorites Book Club Review

A Love That Never Dies by Penny Owen is a sweet, accessible, and intensely accurate portrayal of what love can do to two people who are experiencing it. It is short enough to be read in a single day and suspenseful enough to keep your interest. You will definitely want to lose sleep or skip something you ordinarily do to read this and finish it all in one sitting! I couldn't help but fall in love with Owen's main character, Patricia, who spends her entire life in search for her "Prince Charming". When she finally finds him, she finds him in Rob, a fellow classmate. Through a series of surprising twists and turns, the reader feels the heart ache this young woman endures. In every way, it is a story that will grab a hold of your heart and squeeze it. I found myself in tears at the end. Owen has a gift for capturing real emotions, especially unrequited love. I also praise her for keeping the reader spellbound through subtle suspense. One can actually feel like they are on a tight rope with Patricia as she struggles to make it to the opposite side, but it is worth every careful step! I eagerly wait to see what this talented author offers us next! Be sure to keep a box of tissues nearby.

5 out of 5 stars!
