What Love Looks Like by Kurt Bensworth

Do you remember your first love?

Kent Huffman remembers his—all too well. For years he has been haunted by unrelenting dreams of her. He often wonders if he had swallowed his pride and simply made the call that day, his life might have turned out differently.

What Love Looks Like

. . . is an unforgettable story about the surprising paths our lives often take by the decisions we make. Does love ever really die or is it merely covered up by the layers of time?

Set amid the burgeoning areas of Orange County, California, in the 1970s, What Love Looks Like begins when Kent is sixteen. At that age, he is not exactly the all-American type. His long blond hair, passion for surfing, smoking habit, and motorcycle make him just the sort of guy parents love to hate. Growing up in a violent, secret-laden family, his world is anything but loving. That is until he meets her.

Opal Milton is quite the opposite; she is part of the class of "haves." Wealthy and well educated, the Miltons strictly adhere to the governing principles of the church. Opal is different—something stirs deep inside her and she questions if there's more to life than the direction intended by her mother. She battles between the trappings of tradition and the exposed reality of Kent's love.

Ultimately, this is a bittersweet tribute to youth remembered and the burning desire to ask "What if?"
