Closure: based on a true story

CLOSURE: based on a true story


Tara just wants to be loved. But life makes other plans. Will she take another chance on her first love or realize that self-esteem comes from within?

Looking back, Tara Carter wonders if what followed her first kiss was a warning of things to come. At the young age of ten, her heart broke when her best friend Trey moved 1,500 miles away. Crossing paths five years later, the two teens exchange beautiful letters that cement their love. They embark on an idealized relationship, despite trauma and heartbreak on both sides, only to be forced apart shortly after.

Tara enters college and is forced to confront the ugly side of life, losing contact with her first love. As time marches on, she yearns to know what could have been . . . until fate presents her with one last opportunity twenty years later. Will she take it?

If you like courageous women, raw emotions, and real-life issues, then you’ll love Tasche Laine’s slice of life tale—a moving fictional memoir based on a true story.
