selfless true love

I couldn't put this book down (or quite literally stop listening to it). the premise of a widow who had lost 3 husbands was quite intriguing on its own, but the fact that there was someone who had been in love with her all these years turned out to be the best part.

the way Charles was portrayed seemed very realistic. the way he pined after her and how he reacted to her very much felt like that of a man who had been rejected all of his life, but not of a man without confidence. that was balanced really well. I loved seeing how he loved her and thought of her, and how made sure not to make her uncomfortable. above all, regardless of his love, he respected her and her decisions and never victimized himself or blamed her for not returning his feelings. he showed her what true love is - selfless - for all he did for her, he never once expected anyting in return. he simply did it out of love for her <3 I could write an essay about this man.

Amelia and how she fell for him was also very realistic. it made sense why now after all these years, and how she went from seeing him as just that annoying guy who's chased me all his life, to being attracted to him (there's a delicious lake scene, I WILL SAY NO MORE, you'll just have to read it for yourself, trust me, you will not regret it), to seeing him for the wonderful man that he has always been. it's really lovely seeing how she falls for him.

the friend Hattie added a lot of comical relief and the narrator's voice for her was PERFECT. she seems like such a fun character and I'm looking forward to her own story. the narrator in general did a very good job I think.

all in all, this book felt so refreshing. no ballrooms and no london. just a lovely countryside and the neighbors who live there interacting with each other. no contrived ways for the characters to meet, always very natural. also really loved that it did not have a sudden ending. things come to a resolution and we get to see past it and enjoy the happy ending, though I always still wish for more. it was still very satisfying.

of course no book is perfect, and this one isn't, but there isn't anything worth mentioning. I hope more people find this hidden gem

A personally appealing storyline

I always love the writings of Kasey Stockton. However, this book was particularly appealing to me because of the secondary character Lydia Halpert. The condition she struggled with during pregnancy was been the experience of one of my own daughters with all four of her pregnancies. Perhaps not quite as extreme in her case but she did have to be hospitalized for IV at times. Of course I love Charles — and Amelia grew on me. There were times, though, that her references to Charles from the past just seemed a bit too demeaning. I understand that she was the one that had to mature in order to see the value in his steadfast character. I will definitely be continuing to read the rest of the books in the series and, as I said at the beginning of this review, this book was extremely well written and very enjoyable… The storyline was great and the narration of the audible version was also excellent.
