really liked it

if you've ever known love at first sight, then this author brings back all the magic of the impulses that invade your every moment when it happens to you. Tom and Fay have already had some experience with romantic relationships: he has had three marriages, She has had three long term live-ins. He seems to commit too easily, she is wary of commitment.
Tom is a late night Talk show host, Fay an authority on mermaids. Not too much in common you might think, but their lives are interwoven with family and friends, who manage to put a spoke in the wheel as they hurry to the altar.
This book is more than a love story. Full of charm and wit and characters you'll enjoy knowing.
It's one of those books I will read again when I need a boost. My first experience of Carol Shields but not my last.
