The summer before her senior year of high school, Rosalee fell in love with George. By the next summer, George had broken her heart, and Rosalee was sure she'd never see him again.
Forty years and a lifetime later, Rosalee's quiet, predictable life is turned upside down when she runs into George at a restaurant and discovers he's moved to town. George wants to reconnect, and while Rosalee's head isn't so sure that's a good idea, her heart is saying something different.
It's a story about first love and second chances, family, friendship, and living life to the fullest.
My thoughts: I enjoyed reading Rosalee's story! I like how the book goes back and forth between that summer when Rosalee was in high school and fell in love with George and present day, when she is dealing with settling into life as a widow and empty nester. I don't read a lot of stories where the characters are older like this, but I need to branch out more, since I enjoyed the depth that it added to the story! Amanda Waters has a lovely way of bringing the characters to life, as well as the dual timeline flowing nicely. This is a delightful book to pick up and enjoy!
I received this book from Just Read. This is my honest review.
