As a divorced woman, it is always difficult for me to read about marriages ending. And I wonder if I should have made extra efforts to encourage a relationship with someone who might have been my true love. I have to admit that I have thought about that individual for years…since our last interaction. And with the failure of my marriage, should I have made the effort to reach out to the guy for whom I really cared?
So I recognized myself throughout the pages of this book. However, Celine’s feelings for both men and the decision she had to make were tough. I think I would have enjoyed learning more about the background of each of her relationships and how the past and present emotions were factors in her life.
This is a somewhat heartwarming but not a quick read. The writing flowed and the author kept your attention with good character development. However, I did not connect well with Celine…who was the main character.
