Book Details

Gone in an instant, now I feel blue Will the hurt ever lift All I want is a kiss All I can think about is you

Love, the most universal experience, is the central theme of this heartfelt collection of in all its glory, pain, wonder, joy, hurt, betrayal, and power. Looking back over her lifetime of flirtations, boyfriends, true love, and heartbreak, Stacey Todd brings a unique transparency and honesty to her memories. From an innocent and yet deeply felt game of Spin the Bottle in childhood to the wrenching heartache of a first love lost...from the enjoyment of dating hot boys in Hollywood to the confusion of learning that one of them is not what he seems...from learning more about what love really means to learning more about herself...Stacey shares her courage, her humor, and her sensitivity. And at last, when life-altering physical symptoms lead to the diagnosis of a serious illness that she would need to manage for the rest of her life, she began to discover different definitions of love, in those who lifted her up in her time of need. With the support of her father, Walter Todd, Stacey has brought this collection of poetry to you. Share Stacey’s journey, and allow her to be your companion and confidante in your own quest for true love.
