so heartbreaking yet so wonderful..even though edward did a horrible and unforgiving thing, he didn't beg for forgiveness because he knew there couldn't be any. his actions spoke louder than his words ever could.

I am sorry, I really tried to stay quiet and respect that people are entitled to their own choices, but this was disturbing.
From all the Edwards in all kinds of fanfiction I have managed to read, this one has been by far the most despicable(even more so that the disgusting , sadistic ones).
Such an immature character,fleeing when trouble arrives ...abandoning the woman he claims to love when she needs him to be the man he swore to be in those wedding vows.
I don't think he possesses the necessary emotional development to love someone other that himself.
Look at what he does, he protects himself from all situations that may require for him to put on his big boy pants and man 's the most pathetic kind of coward, sitting in the sidelines, claiming to be in extreme pain ,selfishly thinking his own pain could ever compare to the feeling of being trapped in a body that is then having the audacity to hope when everything is all right he will get to take his place like he didn't just make fighting for her life 10 times harder,knowing the one that promised to love you and stand by you left you to deal with your own mess.
And the fact that she forgives him after a good round of sex...is just, sad.
I am sorry if this offended you in any way, I truly apologize ,as this was not my purpose. But I really couldn't get past this issue and wasn't able to enjoy this story.
I hope your friend stays healthy and happy and that there won't be any reason for her to ever regret choosing to take her husband back.

I am so happy that my stories haven't updated and I needed a one shot to hold me over - thank you once again to the PPSS for pointing me in the right direction. You were surprisingly effective in pulling me into these characters and their circumstances with so few words with which to do it. The story was heartbreaking and frustrating as Edward decided to leave and avoid. I knew someone who loved his wife so completely that he withdrew and became a worthless shell when she became ill and he thought he would lose her. He was seriously depressed while she retained all of her joy and passion for life, fighting to beat the disease. But to actually leave is inexcusable. I like how Bella told E off and divorced him in punishment that he clearly deserved, but ultimately couldn't deny the connection they had or envision herself with anyone else. Lovely story of struggle and forgiveness, and ultimately, love. Thanks!

This broke my heart. Beautifully written, great story, but I had a really hard time with the abandonment, depsite his watching over her stalkishly. It was even sadder to know this is based of a real life couple. If someone is capable of doing something once, the right circumstances can make them capable of doing it again. Cancer can come back, no matter how good things seem to be, and there are other tragic, terminal things that can happen unpredictably, to anyone, at any time. I would never trust someone like this Edward to stick around again when times get extremely tough. I REALLY hope your friend's health stays good and the cancer (and anything else bad that can happen) stays aways.
As sad as this storyline made me, I would definitely read more if you decide to continue it, as there is so much more I would love to see with these characters and how they work through this.

oh that was pretty hard to get through and i considered stopping a couple of times throughout the story but kept going! It was very disheartening and even tho i'm glad it ended well it was very hard although i've never been through anything like that myself it was very emotional and yeah hard to get through. the fact that he left her at such a needful time in her life...just hard to comprehend!

What a difficult story to read and I'm sure a more difficult one to write being based on a reality. It's hard to wrap my head around the fact that a loved one would leave at such a time in need, that they weren't strong enough to endure by their side. So sad. But I'm glad they did get their happy ending. It takes a strong woman to get past that.

Wow, this story is so sad and yet so beautiful at the same time.
| sassy41 chapter 1 . 9/17/2009
That was a tough one. I love your writing
I so hated Edward in this one. I can't believe being married and being together for so many years you go when it gets tough.
I am glad the couple was able to work through it I am happy for them. But man that was tough for her to take him back not knowing if he would do it again.
love the writing
