    It's 1988 and Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley have only just met. They both know that the next day, after college graduation, they must go their separate ways. But after only one day together, they cannot stop thinking about one another. As the years go by, Dex and Em begin to lead separate lives. And yet, unable to let go of that special something that grabbed onto them that first night, an extraordinary relationship develops between the two.

    Story

    I can't believe I slogged through this entire book, waiting for the characters, especially the guy, to develop some redeeming qualities. This story was very realistic in the worse sense of the word; which is, you get to listen to them suffer and complain about life for the whole story. Then, the ending is very melodramatic without any real point for the melodrama. When the two "star crossed lovers (sarcastic)" finally do get together, there is no real epiphany here. Unless you like suffering, don't bother with this one. I had to give it more than one star, however, because the writing was excellent, and the characters original and, at times, funny and entertaining. I hope the movie they made out of this book is an improvement.

    In her small early-19th-century Welsh town, there is no one quite like Morgana. She is small and quick and pretty enough to attract a suitor, but there are things that set her apart from other girls. Though her mind is sharp she has not spoken since she was a young girl. Her silence is a mystery, as well as her magic - the household objects that seem to move at her command, the bad luck that visits those who do her ill. Concerned for her safety, her mother is anxious to see Morgana married....

    Story

    It is a nice story. The reader's accent lends well to the setting. But this isn't a romance novel in the traditional sense. Absolutely no action whatsoever at all *yawn*

    Despite having jobs and men that they love, each knows that something is missing: the closeness that once sustained them. Carmen is a successful actress in New York, engaged to be married, but misses her friends. Lena finds solace in her art, teaching in Rhode Island, but still thinks of Kostos and the road she didn’t take. Bridget lives with her longtime boyfriend, Eric, in San Francisco, and though a part of her wants to settle down, a bigger part can’t seem to shed her old restlessness. Then Tibby reaches out to bridge the distance, sending the others plane tickets for a reunion....

    Story

    This continuation of the Sisterhood is beautifully done. The girls are still the same girls, but each grown into womanhood in a very realistic way. I am not one for crying, and I have to admit this book moved me to tears several times. The ending is GOOD!!! yay. :) I so tired of melodramatic sad endings. This book is full of hope and love and humor and makes clear for us the very meaning of true friendship. Even if you missed the first four books about the sisterhood, this story stands on its own, the characters finely developed. Overall, a great story to loose yourself in, loose your heart in, and count on a great ending.
