Having always wanted to write a romance novel, author Shannon Dickinson weaves a tale of everlasting and eternal love. In “Keeping Chris” (published by AuthorHouse), she takes readers on an unforgettable journey amidst trials and hardship.

Growing up side by side, Lilly and Chris Rylan fell deeply in love, so deeply, in fact, that they could not imagine spending a single moment apart. They attended the same high school before marrying in pursuit of the picture-perfect life. Now, after 10 years of marriage, Chris’ life takes an unexpected turn that threatens to tear Lilly and Chris apart. Lilly fights to keep Chris with her, defying unthinkable odds. In the process, Chris and Lilly discover that life is not always what one expects it to be. Can they succeed in keeping one thing everyone yearns for – true love?

An excerpt from the book:
For me, marriage was not a flurry of kisses and amorous hugs. No, it was a friendship that started with a boy and a girl who were so helplessly in love that they couldn’t bear to be apart.

Divorce and cancer are both prevalent and common in society. This book tackles both of these issues, while telling a love story that transcends time. “I want readers to see that true love never ends. If you love someone enough, you’ll find a way to overcome tremendous odds,” Dickinson says.
