“Fate Be by Rowena Portch is one of those stories you read and never want to end, yet you want to know how it all plays out for the charming characters that you can’t help but fall in love with. Rowena Portch captured all the moments perfectly to bring out the raw emotions that will have you captivated to the very last page. The story will have you mushy and mellow when you are not on the edge of your seat with dreadful anticipation. You might also need to have some tissues handy in case your tear ducts decide to give in to the intensity of the emotions, but there will also be some smiles along the way. Thank you for such an amazing story, Rowena Portch; it was a truly beautiful read.”
