To those who read my story, have you ever wondered if life is fair? Is it possible for love to conquer and heal a lifetime of internal and external wounds? Can a man with a cruel past find not only his soul, but his soul mate? These are my questions; this is my journey from the downtrodden streets and prisons of New Jersey, to the arctic ice of Norway. A dangerous, often dark voyage, which I have grown accustomed to over the past twenty-one years; however, it is not out of choice. Unfortunately, life has simply never gifted me with other options. Or so I thought, until the frigid night, in the heart of winter, when fate brought Amy into my life. In a sense, I rescued her during a brutal winter storm, yet she affected my life on a multitude of levels. Our attraction went beyond all reason, past all of society's rules and regulations, farther than the boundaries of the institutions that have held me captive for a large portion of my life. However, is this bond strong enough to endure my crimes, my past, and the engrained lessons that have permeated my body and mind? Is it possible for a beautiful, intelligent woman to truly love me no matter the obstacles? Can Amy love me knowing that her love will destroy her family ties, and most likely, her future dreams?
