These are stories that make us believe in the power of eternal love - and the characters in this book show their attraction to each other in a playful, fun loving way, with lightness of heart and spirit.
My only issue was that this was two separate stories - and I wanted each to be longer, fuller and to have a more drawn-out ending. Perhaps just that I didn't want to leave behind my lovers when the story ended.
As an ex-Brit, loved the war-time details, the inner workings of M5 and spy-catchers and found myself intrigued by the car journeys through black-outs - the rationing and limited communication channels that were available then. Difficult to imagine not being able to send a picture via phone or have instant access across the miles.
It was a trip, not only to England but back in time.
Story was a little slow at the beginning, but heart wrenching as we get to know the characters.
My best kept secret is that my gym workout is a Private pleasure. Three miles on the treadmill at a pulse racing trot, no problem, weight training, no sweat, 200 crunches are something to look forward to.
This is the novel that is so engaging that it has me wanting to go to the gym, and makes me WANT to keep going to the end of the chapter.
My sincere thanks to authors and narrators for an inch off my waistline and better posture.
Give this sweet gift to yourself and be swept away to the London of Sherlock Holmes. No wonder these stories have lasted across time. I only wish that it was longer.
Helpful, low key, highly practical advise given in a friendly atmosphere. The author became my coach and mentor and helped me to find my personal path. I liked that she gave many options for reaching my goals instead of pointing to the 'right' answer as many other books do. Can you tell that I am a self-help book junkie? If so, take it from one who has sampled many, that this is one book that will leave you feeling better about yourself from first page to last.
A delicious little appetizer.
Too sad to be romantic comedy - but very entertaining. This is a hit to the funny bone - painful as it is witty - just not sure I would want the whole book.
Rarely do I find a book that is both spiritually insightful and practical. This book fulfills that purpose and is also uplifting.
I did have two issues; - In retrospect, would have preferred the print version as I wanted to highlight passages for future reference.
Also, I found that Deepak's voice was too deadpan for enjoyable listening. I tried slowing down the pace, and that helped - but I could only listen to short sessions. Good advice is like medicine - it needs to be taken in small portions.
