Vaughn's Pride reads like a bad love song. Broken hearts, shattered dreams and foolish pride are abundant. It's common sense that's lacking. John Mayer said it best: " When dreaming with a broken heart, waking up proves the hardest part." T.J. and Vaughn lived those words. Love brought them together, but pride is keeping them apart. Can love survive grief, fate, pride and distance? With nostalgia, heart and faith, Ms. Laurence shows the power of love and the reason for hope. Vaughn's Pride, may be my first Selena Laurence novel but definitely not my last.
