It begins in a rural Minnesota town in the late 1950’s with a thirteen-year-old girl and a fifteen-year-old boy. They fell in love, but their happiness was short lived until fifty-five years later, when fate would show them the true strength of their affection. Meet author Dennis Vinar and learn about this remarkable story of perseverance, faith, and overwhelming love.
