What do you do when the person you love seems unapproachable, untouchable, inappropriate? But if given a chance, love could surely blossom.
Cat5 has written a romantic odyssey of two such persons who care for each other but hold the other's well-being in higher regard than their own pleasure. Remember the O. Henry story about Jim, who sold his prize possession, his watch, to buy combs for his wife's glorious hair? And Della sold her hair to buy a gold chain for his watch? "The Gift of the Magi" presents two people, desperately in love with each other, who sacrifice their own pleasure for the other.
Rick and Beth in "Tears On My Face" remind me of that very same tension: self-gratification, honest communication, and respect for the other are deliciously tendered in this gentle tale. If you enjoy stories that tug your heart, this will be a happy read for you.
The story is well-written. You will find a carefully-crafted plot with interesting characters. Good editing makes for a logical flow, with no jarring typos to interrupt your enjoyment.
