[Following is an official review of "Love Will Find A Way" by Juanita Tischendorf.]

Things weren’t so bad for Drake Parker even after his marriage fell apart. He had a stable job, a good relationship with his children and a good attitude towards everything. Things took a drastic turn for him when he got a call from his doctor. Turns out, he had cancer and because of the severity of the disease, he didn’t have more than one year to live. Trinity Hunter found herself in a similar situation. Yes, her life hadn’t been so well, especially when she was dumped after being in a relationship for five years. However, she knew she would get over it in a while. But, before that could happen, she was told that a rare form of cancer had taken over her body. Just like Parker, she didn’t have more than a year to live. A twist of fate brought these two together. Now, the quest wasn’t to die together but to live.

Love Will Find A Way by Juanita Tischendorf is the story of two people haunted by their imminent mortality. How do you handle life when it doesn’t give you much time? Should you let yourself fall for someone? More importantly, should you let someone else fall for you when you know that you’re not going to be around for long? It is these questions that haunt the protagonists of this novel. Their decisions, and consequently, their life is shaped by these things. Tischendorf has aptly portrayed the situations of people suffering from cancer. How they react when they first discover the limit placed on their life-span, how they try to beat death and how they live.

The characters of Parker and Trinity are realistically sketched. The emotions that they feel and the regrets that they contemplate on are what everyone goes through in their life. I liked that I could relate to these characters on various levels. Unlike other romantic novels, this one refrained from making anything too cheesy or over the top. The people in this story are as real as they come. They were not completely black or white. They had mixed emotions and they were dealing with them, just as every normal person does. Considering how well-thought-out the characters were, I thought the story would turn out good. However, it suffered from some major flaws that are hard to ignore.

One of the things that let me down about this book was its writing style. It was botched up on a lot of levels and rectifying it would take some work. First of all, there are many, many grammatical mistakes in it. A once in a while error can be ignored, but a once every while thing is hard to disregard. Apart from the typos and other errors, the tenses were also discontinuous. For example, the sentences are flowing in the past tense, and then suddenly, they turn into the present tense. A similar thing happened with the narrative. For the most part, the story was being told in the third person. But, every now and then, it would suddenly take the form of the first person. Such things created a hindrance in the reading flow which, in turn, diminished the interest in the story.

My rating for Love Will Find A Way is 1 out of 4 stars. Had it not been for the disordered writing style and the plethora of grammatical mistakes, perhaps, I would have enjoyed this book. Certainly, there is a lot of potential in the story. The characters are strong, they just weren’t written too well. Also, the story had a realistic tone, but sometimes, it felt a bit mundane. A little bit more of action or emotion would do it some good. In an ideal situation, I’d recommend this book to everyone who is interested in the romantic genre, especially the ones who love The Fault in Our Stars type stories. I wish that this book receives an editorial perspective and after all its problems are sorted out, people should definitely get their hands on it.

A rather unusual love story with cancer patients at its core. It sounds interesting, and it's bound to be eye-opening. I hope the copy you read isn't the final version, and that a skilled editor gets their hands on the book as soon as possible.

The book sounds like it had potential, just needs some more editing. The book almost sounds like a tragic love story, since both are going to die so soon. Great review.

This sounds like it has the potential to be quite emotional with the characters both being cancer patients. It's too bad about the numerous errors; I'm still not sure why authors feel the need to skip the proofreading step at the very least. Thanks for the review, but I guess I'll wait until another round of editing has occurred.

This sounds very emotional. I don't even know why anyone would be thinking about a new romantic relationship with their impending death so close. Very sad and somewhat odd story. I think I would have passed even had you given it a higher rating.

It is always a shame when books are never edited to the best of standards. You would think that the first priotiry in publishing any type of novel is checking for grammar. it is a shame that this author did not put in the time to fix the mistakes and hopefully later on they can fix that.

The dilemma in the book is very strong and I think that's what makes this story great... despite the errors I still would want to give it a try.

While reading the review and comments, i heard the song What I Did for Love playing in my head. This sounds like a tear-jerker. Even the writing errors will make you cry.

It is so emotional and heart-touching. I think I don't have the courage to read such an emotional book.
