♥ Story ♥
Felicity and Marek met 43 years ago in college. Their attraction came quite sudden and intense as it often does when you’re so young. Different ideas of what each wanted for their future, eventually lead to their demise.
This story is told through a series of flashbacks, and at times it can get a bit confusing. There is no true aural clues to signal the shifts in time. I ended up reading along with the ebook as I listened to the audiobook.
Felicity and Marek are both incredibly stubborn and their lack of communication makes it even worse for their relationship. Felecity’s penchant for running away from her problems, doesn’t help either. And she doesn’t just run to a friend’s house, she runs to the other side of the globe!
“Felicity, do you always question everything?”
Forty years and all it entails, doesn’t damper the attraction and love these two still feel. But just as the warmth returns so does the cold. The epic level of tenacity and determination to hold out for the other to make the first move is astounding. The constant power tug of war carried on a little too long in my opinion.
It is refreshing to have the main characters of a love story not be so young. Yes, there are many flashbacks to their youth, so we have a lot of interaction with them in their early 20s. Ultimately, the main meat and potatoes of the story, takes place with them in their 60s. Their bodies may of aged but they are still young at heart.
