This is a very romantic novel in the truest sense. The setting of Cape May is described in extreme detail and is utterly charming. If you are interested in a book about a love affair where the characters are 60 years old, this would be a great pick. After Michael finally kisses Joanna, it was nearly impossible to put down the book. The author uncovers every emotional aspect in the novel. The characters’ feelings felt very real and justified. I was pleased how the story ended for all of the characters.
