On the undertaking of reading “Ultimate Love” by Kitty Caley, this would not have been my next choice of books to read except for the fact that I know her personally and I was interested in her story. Kitty is a rare kind of mother that EVERY child deserves and should have had “in a perfect world” and is a gifted writer. “Ultimate Love” brings out every emotion: envy, dread, happiness, sadness, anger, empathy, and joy. I have felt inspired and am motivated to be a better person having read it, and am honored to have a friend like Kitty. The devotion Kitty showed for her son Chip is so rare, one cannot help being envious and awestruck. The love and respect Kitty shows in her relationships is the same love and respect that is missing in today’s culture. Chip must have been a splendid child and young man who I would have been proud to know and call my friend. I think any person over the age of 12 should read “Ultimate Love”.
