For me that would be Francine River's Redeeming Love. It's a Christian based book love story. i practically bawled my eyeballs out every page i flip from the first page till the last. it gave me a new insight about God's love through the fiction characters in the story. Another book that had me crying (not the entire book but through the progression of the story) is Julie Garwood's Gentle Warrior. The way the hero of the story treated the heroine was just heart-breaking & it took him so long to realize he loved her. What about you? Have you read any books that absolutely touched your heart?

i got a lot of books that made me cry before but i forgot there title but i have this book that i have read recently that i really cried a lot and it left a heavy heart. the book was entitled A thousand tomorrows by Karen Kingsbury. it was so heartwarming and one true love though it wasn't a fairy tale ending.

i know what you mean. especially when you know someone has been through all that, it makes your heart wrench even more. it makes things even worse when they didn't get a happily ever after they deserved.

Book that makes me really cry is FLOWERS FOR ALGERNON written by Daniell Keyes. It is a story about thirty years old retarted man whose biggest wish is to be like the others. He is suggested to take part in experiment for making higher IQ. The experiment is succesful. The same experiment was also earlier made on rat called Algernon. He finally know what means to live a normal life. As the time goes the man starts to be smarter than other people and he realised that is very hard to have some relationships. Later he finds out that Algernon is behaving strange. He makes some researches and find out that everything is turning back. Algernon is dying and he is becoming retarted again. At the end of the book he is asking to put flowers on Algernons grave.... I am not a good storyteller but I really recommend this book :-)

Oh, only one thing comes to mind (so far) and it is described as an inspirational compilation. It is the ever-tear-jerking, Chicken Soup for the Soul. I have read the Chicken Soup for the Soul, 2nd Helping of Chicken Soup for the Soul, and Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul. Each Chicken Soup for the Soul (I'll call this "CSFTS" since the title's too long) book is a compilation of real-life stories. When you read one book, you'd definitely feel a menagerie of emotions and awe that real people have gone through each of the stories on there -- it may seem unbelievable but it's true. You can't help but be inspired and empathize with what they have gone through and be thankful that they have told their story. And more than a few stories on each of the CSFTS book that I've read have made me cry either from relief, hope, wonder, bravery... as I've said, it can bring up a MENAGERIE OF HUMAN EMOTIONS. It is so powerful, for me - so far - and I am looking forward to have the same experience with reading other books in the future. Here's to reading!!! [cheers] :D

Can i cite more than one? 1. Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom - it is about the relationship of a professor and a student and how, even if the professor is dying, he still taught life's greatest lessons. 2. The trilogy book of Dave Pelzer- A Child called "it"; The Lost Boy and "A Man Named Dave" - this is based on the true story of the author. It tells about his painful childhood, how he was maltreated and abused by his own mother. It also tells about forgiveness, moving on, and how he became so much successful and attained peace within despite a really bitter childhood experience. 3. Angela's Ashes - by Frank McCourt. It is an autobiography from the author's childhood in Ireland, their poverty, how they deal with everyday living until they found a way to go to America and made it big. It is really heartwarming. And how McCourt wrote the book was very moving. I may try reading Redeeming Love and Gentle Warrior. Thanks!

When I was a kid, I read: (Old Yeller), and it broke my heart and I remember I cried for days! Like an idiot, I went to see the movie and boy was that ever a mistake! I cried for weeks off and on and to this day I get teary eyed when ever I think about it!(I am now 58)!

The book which has made me cry badly was love storry by Erich Sehgal. I mean, it is undisputedly beautifully written. It has such nice expressions that it makes you cry. It really feels as if it is happening for real. Thus I think this is one of the most sentimental book.

I got through reading Dewey, about the library cat and it made me cry several times. I'm a tough cry, I don't cry easily, but that one made me cry. Of course it was about a cat....

I haven't read your book. I know it may sound very silly, but I cried badly when I read a Japanese comics book called the The Story of the Dog S. It is a comics book about a dog wanted to go to seek its master. It is very moving. I love China
