Camryn and Andrew are pursuing their love for music and living life to the fullest as they always swore to do. But when tragedy befalls them, their relationship is put to the ultimate test. As Camryn tries to numb her pain, Andrew makes a bold decision: To get their life back on track, they’ll set out on another cross-country road trip. Together they find excitement, passion, adventure-and challenges they never could have anticipated.

Camryn and Andrew are back! After that life changing bus ride from The Edge of Never, their lives continue to evolve around the fear of Andrew’s health deteriorating, Camryn’s pregnancy, and all the loses they have experienced.

This is a new journey for them. This journey is based on their love, which keeps on growing. Andrew’s love for Camryn goes beyond devotion. He is very protective of her, which sometimes leads him into more trouble than he can handle. Reading this book made me sigh and wonder if such could possibly exist. The author makes believers out of us as Andrew tries every possible scenario to bring Camryn out of her depression … even when the situation is not to his liking.

Trust and belief in a future is at the heart of this story. So is acceptance that tomorrow is not promised to anyone and our time on Earth is undetermined. Accepting death as part of life, Camryn and Andrew come to the decision to live for today and make few plans for tomorrow. Their pact is to live their lives true to their beliefs and without regrets. This book made me think. Too many lives are spent on working and daily drudgeries and not enough are spent appreciating life and loved ones. This is a lesson not easily learned. I could relate to this story because of the years it took me to understand that first of all you have to love and trust yourself, then you can love and trust your loved one and do what is right for both of you.

Just like in The Edge of Never, they take us with them in their journey through life and we are transformed. Priorities shift, life is appreciated, and zest is infused in all of us who are trapped in the perennial “rate race”. Great conclusion to a heartfelt story!
