A new author to me.
This was a lovely story about Kit and Janet whom Kit no longer loves.
Janet is beautiful but a shallow woman.
While visiting a dying patient Kit meets Christie, who is taking care of her Aunt.
Christie is warm and vivacious and Kit finds the passion that has been missing from his life.
A beautifully written love story which will have you spell bound.
