Erich Segals Only Love



Happily married neurosurgeon Matthew Heller has chosen to take on the most complicated patient of his life—his first true love and ex-fiance who is now dying from a life-threatening illness. As their reunion rekindles memories spanning over twenty years and three continents, Matthew must find a way to save her life without losing his marriage. This is a gripping and romantic drama about friendship, love and sacrifice.

Dove Review

This film is a love story for all time. Matthew is a handsome doctor who has traveled the world. He met his first love on the way to Africa and there asked Silvia to marry him. But when an accident in the war-torn country happens, she makes a deal with her influential father for help. Because of the pact she made, she was forced to leave Matthew behind.

Now their paths cross again thanks to a strange medical condition Silvia faces. Matthew is a world renowned neurosurgeon and she has an illness that he may be able to cure. As they begin her therapy, they also reminisce about their life together and about the lives they now have.

Although this is a tender love story, due to the content in this movie it cannot be Dove approved.
