Parental disapproval is the biggest obstacle facing Cassie and Mark.
Although they are gloriously and deeply in love, Mark's parents are set
on ending the romance. When Cassie discovers she has bone cancer, she
decides leaving Mark is for the best. Elated, Mark's parents send him to
Europe to study-and to forget Cassie. When Mark's parents find out the
real reason Cassie let Mark go, they are ashamed of their interference.
Mark is reunited with Cassie in an emotional moment that now has the
blessing of his parents. Cassie and Mark now know that nothing can stop
their love-it goes far beyond the limits of her illness.
