I'm not a writing expert, so when I say that I loved this book, I'm not referring to whatever makes a book a classic.

Very straight forward romance story. Leda is pursuing a career as an actress after completing college and returning to her home town. She falls in love with the man who was accused of causing her father's death. Kyle has paid his debt to society by serving several years in prison.

Kyle tracks her down ...more
