9781477435366: Godspeed: A love story

Now available in e-book versions, too!! 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 are certain it will be eternal. But when it ends in heartbreak, Derry descends into an abyss of devastation and remorse and despair. In his overpowering grief this tormented newspaperman embarks on an obsessive crusade for redemption, an improbable, tender quest 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. "Godspeed" is a bittersweet story of laughter and tears, irrepressible humor, reckless devotion, the value of true friendship, and unimaginable longing for the "forever" that can no longer be. And as the story and its astonishing twists unfold, a poignant question lingers: How can a lie be wrong if it makes so many people feel so good?

About the Author:

Dan Chabot is a former newspaper editor, writer and columnist who now lives in Florida. He and his wife, Mary Ellen, are the parents of three grown sons.

Review:

With a strong message of friendship and the power of interpersonal relationships, Godspeed is a fine addition to general fiction collections, highly recommended.
                                                                                            --Mary Cowper, Midwest Book Review

...Grab some tissues and power through, knowing the story will all come together and you will be touched by this charming story of love, loss, and Godspeed to all of those left behind.
                                                                                  --Angela Mclaurin, The Indie Bookshelf

...This is one of those books that stick with you... It is hugely readable and enjoyable, although you will need to have your hanky at hand...  The novel takes a realistic look at life and death and celebrates humanity. How exactly? Just read "Godspeed" and you will feel better about the world.
 --Stephanie D., Readers Favorite

...I honestly think this would make a good Hollywood movie... If you are looking for a nice, heartwarming and encouraging story, you might want to pick up this book.
--Bookingly Yours

 
   An uplifting book...   --Amanda Capper, Genre Fiction Reviews

   I was literally crying at one point (seriously sobbing) so that's a testament to the author's strong descriptions that he could reel in a skeptic like me... 
                                                       --Sarah Brillinger, Three Cats and a Girl

  Beautifully written, clever characters, and the stories within the story really moved me...  Have some tissues handy, pour a nice glass of wine and curl up with Godspeed.   --Escape with Dollycas Into a Good Book,

Godspeed is poignant, touching, heartbreaking, uplifting, laugh out loud funny, cleansing, has a cast of characters you wished were your friends, and is one of those books that you want to share with everyone you know and don't know and tell them that they HAVE to read it... If you've had a bad day, week or month, it will bring you back to a place that you thought you had lost.  It will restore your faith in whatever you believe in most...
                                                                                   --The Ravenous Reader book blog

...Beautiful, touching, poignant. An emotional love story that experiences great, happy highs and a deep, sad low. But it is also a story that affirms love and life for 'ordinary', every-day people. Although there is tragedy and sadness. the author entertains with passion, humor and a very uplifting and positive message... I recommend this to anyone who likes warm emotional stories and especially to anyone who might need encouragement. If you think that your life, or others around you, are not each of great individual worth and importance, please read this book.--Martha's Bookshelf book blog
