Average Rating of 4.3 from 6 reviews: *****

i fist thought it was a biography. when i read the name of the book.. but its different.. sweet ending..but more details of previous life of charles Rex.. and why his previous engagement has been broken should have been given more precisely....


this is a wonderful read.. it has made my day..


Charles Rex lived for himself until he met Toby who changed his life forever. A good read.
