This an out and out love story- all us hopeless romantics out there will fall in love with Rachel and Andy. I found myself rooting for them to find a way to make their love story find its happily ever after. Throughout this love saga that spans over the years, the characters learn to grow up and how to love. They also learn a little something about heart break. The author tastefully incorporates racial, moral and social issues without going overboard.
This is a light read which I could easily see being turned into a movie, much like the author’s In her shoes was starring Cameron Diaz. If you’re looking for a story that will tug at your heart strings, this is for you.
