What once was perfect
I enjoyed reading this book. I started it early this morning and finished it a little while ago. I had a hard time putting it down. I enjoyed the real life happenings. The characters were fluent in their opinions. I do agree that waiting helps despite the fact 12 years were lost. I married at an early age and as I tell others in my opinion “marry in haste, repent in leisure”.
I am divorced after a 30 year marriage, which I wish had turned out different, but then I would not have gone on to finish my college and become a teacher. A lifelong dream. I am now happy to say I have worked 25 years and plan to continue for as long as I can. I was a late bloomer and did not acquire my certification until I was 45 and attending college with my eldest. Regrets for my marriage, but not for the 2nd chance at a career. Age is just a number.
Reading that Kyle returned to get his Master’s was especially gratifying to me. I too have planned to finish mine. I know how hard it is to move back and forth. I am from the city and became a farmer’s wife. A totally different culture. Then I returned to the city-country, half and half culture, and thankful I had a chance to experience it all.
Laney had the farm life first, then the city and was able to return to the country culture. I doubt I could return to the big city again. I am too used to the layer back country-city life now. I admire these two.
As I said before, I had a hard time putting the book down. Best wishes and looking forward to reading more of your novels. Ms. Mary “quite contrary”.
This is erotica
I couldn't even finish this. This is porn.
