Bought a new fiction boxed set containing ten books and this was one of them. On my TBR pile for now. Happy to ring this one if someone wants to read it while I power through my mountain of TBR's.

FROM THE BOOK:
"When Charles Callahan chances on a newspaper photograph of Sian Richards, a woman he loved when they were both only thirteen, he is hardly in a position to do anything about it. He has been faithfully married for years and his Rhode Island real estate business has been hit hard by the recession. But Charles cannot bear his curiosity, and decides to get in touch.
Three decades after they last saw each other, the two lovers meet. Powerfully drawn together once again, Charles and Sian are forced to come to terms with the nature of erotic love and betrayal, moral quandaries in an age of shifting values, and the elusive nature of time."

Another wonderfully written book by Anita Shreve. A very quick, powerful read that had me hooked from page 1. Although I found the end to be very sad (had to grab a tissue to the rescue)!

This story was just so sad, and made me ache, to the core. Life is just so unfair!


This is a holiday weekend so I'm not sure the post office will be open before Tuesday but I already have Summerbreeze's addy so it will be in the mail just as soon as the post office is open again.

Thanks for the opportunity to read this book, froggirlwendy

This just came in the mail at the exact same time as another ring. Also I am two books behind at the moment, and to further add to this insanity, I just found out that my SIL has been booked for a kidney transplant surgery....so between sitting in hospitals, working, and sleeping I have been taking the few minutes I have to escape from my world to the book world. I am apologizing in advance because I may seem like a hog and keeping this book, but I will try and get this book moving. I would have asked to be skipped or shoved down the list, but well, I didn't know this was going to happen so soon...anyway, the book is here WOOHOO!

9 out of 10

Boy I didn't realize how long I had this book in my possession and I am so incredibly sorry for the length of time. I am always good at finishing things in time...however family life got in the way. My sister in law was in and out of hospitals because her health was deteriorating, she needed a kidney transplant and my husband was the donor and now she is great.

That said, I am now finished with the book. It is so beautifully written, so poetic and very moving. I enjoyed this romantic affair the two had, and was so sad with the ending. However, in reality that is what happens. You live a secret life and eventually reality hits and it either goes in your favor or it goes badly wrong.

Well, I enjoyed it regardless of how the book ended and I am so happy to have been a part of this ring.

I guess I am the last on the list, so now it is time to journey back home.
