The summer before her senior year of high school, Rosalee fell in love with George. By the next summer, George had broken her heart, and Rosalee was sure she’d never see him again.
Forty years and a lifetime later, Rosalee’s quiet, predictable life is turned upside down when she runs into George at a restaurant and discovers he’s moved to town. George wants to reconnect, and while Rosalee’s head isn’t so sure that’s a good idea, her heart is saying something different.
It’s a story about first love and second chances, family, friendship, and living life to the fullest.
It is quite frequent that I allow myself to be swayed into reading a book by looking at it’s cover. This book is not one of those. In fact, if I would have taken a good look at the cover, I probably wouldn’t have agreed to do a review. (it’s just not one that appeals to me)
The story, however, was intriguing. An older couple, and a more mature love story. The older I get, the more I enjoy these. Because it is a new to me author, I wasn’t quite sure just what to expect.
In spite of my misgivings, I enjoyed it.
Rosalee was a character that I could relate to. My heart hurt for her as I read her back story, saw her history with George.
And then, they meet again, and get reacquainted. I wasn’t sure what to think.
This is a story of loving again, of forgiveness, and second chances.
