Godspeed: a love story
When Derry and Amedee meet during her first day on the job at the Milwaukee Ledger, it is a collision of destinies. Their love affair is so intense and perfect and pure that they both believe it will be eternal.
But when it ends in heartbreak, Derry descends into a world of guilt, despair, remorse and torment. In his overpowering grief he embarks on a reckless, obsessive crusade for redemption, an improbable, tender search that eventually will lead him to peace of mind and to someone who will help him build a new life from the ashes of the past.
This is a bittersweet story of laughter and tears, irrepressible humor, the value of friendship, and unimaginable longing. And as the story and its astonishing twists unfold, a poignant question lingers: How can a lie be wrong when it makes so many people feel so good?
