A heart-rending story of two small-town former high school sweethearts from opposite sides of the tracks. Now middle-aged, they've taken wildly divergent paths, but neither has lived the life they imagined. When they are both called back to their hometown for the funeral of the mentor who once gave them shelter, they will be forced to confront the choices each has made, and ask whether love can truly rewrite the past.

Didn't end quite the way I would have wanted, but actually more realistic and morally the right thing. An excellent book.

Storyline was good, but predictable. Narration good, although sometimes the narrator had the characters sounding like Forrest Gump and Elvis Presley. Just sayin'.

Loved the read. In the spirit of The Bridges of Madison County, this is a story of unrequited love. It was moving, tender, and beautiful. A great summer read and filled with the power of every day personal struggle and heroics.

This title was not well adapted to audio format. The book alternates between each character's perspective quite quickly. In this audiobook there was not enough of a pause between character switches and it did not say the character that the story was switching to. As an audio, I think this is important because you cannot visualize the breaks between characters as easily as the print format.
