A Thousand Tomorrows by Karen Kingsbury

Cody Gunner is a rodeo rider struggling with his family life, mainly his broken relationship with his father. His brother has Downs syndrome, and his mother just wants him to forgive his father.
But then he meets Ali, a barrel rider with cystic fibrosis. she has to wear a special vest to keep her from doubling over with coughing fits while riding through all the dust. He and Ali eventually marry, but not after he donates a lung to her.
The coincidence of his lung being the type she needs is a little absurd, but this is what happens in this type of book. The characters are what they need to be for this genre.
The plot is just one of those plots that was taken from a mold that was crafted since the beginning of fiction. The advantage Karen has above the other authors in this genre is her ability to capture the emotion without being too sappy or dramatic.
Basically, this story is cute, but not her best.
2.5 stars
