The detail of the relationships.
I felt like I knew the characters
Sophia was my favorite because of her simple loving heart, Ira was my favorite because of his deep love for his wife and Luke was my favorite because of his honest integrity and love for Sophia. Ruth was my favorite because of her love of Ira, her students and art she reminds me of my German grandmother who's name was the same and was also a school teacher.
I like the title of the book for this
There is so much I could say about this book. It embodies the love of a full life both of man to woman as well as the love of learning and the arts both on canvas and in the sports arena.
The book is very interesting and keeps interest but the reader is choppy and over articulates her words. Sadly the reader takes away from a very good story.
I could envision the setting
The slow unfolding of events
No, I wanted to savor it!
Treat yourself to a little mystery and romance
This author seems to have missed the concept that less is more. She sets the stage and tells and retells the foundation over, and over, and over again. I was getting so frustrated with the drawn out dialogue that I almost stopped listening and move onto another book. The only thing that kept me listening was wanting to know how the children came out. The ending left me thinking that's it? The goal of an author is to make the reader want to get their hands on another book by that author ASAP. This author did not achieve that with me. I was just glad it was over.
Trouble through out the book. Less setting the stage that had already been set. Assume the reader is not stupid and got it the first time maybe the second but to repeat and repeat just not necessary.
Yes, I did follow that.
