A Love Past is excellent writing at its finest. The story immediately pulls the reader in as
the drama begins to unfold with the skillful detailed account of a past love. This story will
absolutely touch the heart and have the readers searching for their own diary of
moments to create and share. Ms. Whitfield gives an actual feel of everything
surrounding the past and present. She is a gifted writer and it speaks in this story.
