Review of Annie by Ron Mahaffey

 This is my review of Annie by Ron Mahaffey. This book was sent to me by the author.

 Cody Miller first noticed Annie in geography class in high school. it was pretty much love at first sight. Unfortunately for Cody Annie was dating one of the schools football players, so he tried to put her out of his mind but it wasn't working. He couldn't stop thinking about her. After graduation Cody decided to join the army to go fight in the Vietnam war and to his complete surprise when boarding the plane he discovers Annie is on board as well. She's now an RN and is going to Vietnam to work in a M.A.S.H. unit. It turns out they've both been assigned to the same base. Thus begins the romance. Months go by and their time in Vietnam is coming to a close. Cody decides to propose to Annie and just as she's about to give him her answer the base is attacked by the enemy. 
Cody wakes up in an unfamiliar place and learns that four months have passed while he lay in a coma. Is first thought is of Annie. Did she make it? He later receives some disturbing news and decides to take a trek through the Colorado mountains in hopes of finding peace. What he eventually finds in those mountains is a miracle. 
Annie is a story of love that knows no bounds. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The writing style was excellent and at just 144 pages, a very quick read as well.
