The Book that Made Me Cry

I was already in high school when I started reading novels. I loved pocket books of Sweet Valley High and Tagalog Romance from Gilda Olvidado, Lualhati Bautista and Helen Meriz. Too bad I cannot remember the title of that novel from Gilda Olvidado. It was the first and only book that made me cry. The story is about marriage for convenience. Because they do not love each other, the couples are fighting almost everyday. They begin to fall for each other but both are afraid to admit, until the wife was diagnosed with cancer. I hate the ending that made me cry…the wife died on her husband’s arms. I know the plot was not that good but I was a teenager then, still touchy and shallow.
On my last years in high school, I suddenly shifted to suspense and detective stories and when I was in college, I became number one fan of Sidney Sheldon and still a big fan of him until now.

    hmmm….i think i also went through a phase of reading tagalog love stories. some of the authors names are very familiar but i must admit, due to old age probably, i can't remember a single one i've read.

    happy GT!
