really liked it
Read from January 05 to 12, 2012

I loved this book. Aside from the sweet story of a late in life attraction and chemistry that deepens into love, it is full of important life lessons that are never too late to learn (such as over attachment to material possessions, the injustice of social prejudice, and the meaninglessness of decorum.) The "Major" is taught all of these lessons in sometimes funny and other times simply ironic ways. As with most love stories, he realizes that nothing compares with the real happiness that comes with passionate love. Sigh!

Will Byrnes A wonderful read.

Sarah Fay Fantastic characters which I forgot to mention. She nails the stereotypes across the board. In a mostly lovable way! Don't you think?

Will Byrnes I do. Here is my two cents.

Barb I enjoyed this book so much because of the normal people and the orderly life they seemed to live. In the middle of many best sellers this one stands out
