A sweet, heart-wrenching book with real-life perspectives and problems. Though a fictional book, I love the biblical and practical approaches to addressing marriage problems involving eclectic unions. Charlie and Esther, the older couple, were delightful, as were most of the characters. Each rounded out the story nicely. I especially appreciated the attention to the downward path of aging of one spouse and how it affected everyone. Overall I loved reading the first two-thirds, but it slowed almost to a stop for me, and the ending, though complete left something on the table…I don’t know what.
Having said that, I heard this is one in a series, and it drew me enough to check out some others. An additional draw is a spiritual element. Love that the Lord is prevalent in the lives of some of the characters. Here’s the link if you’d like to check it out.
