Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“We all dream of the chance meeting, that moment when we feel we are really living. Waller shows us that it can happen, with compelling assurance.” Sunday Telegraph (London)
“The romantic classic of the 1990s.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“This is the story of four days that change forever the lives of two lonely people…A well-plotted, quick, and pleasant read.” Library Journal
“Quietly powerful and thoroughly credible, Waller’s first novel…[is] an erotic, bittersweet tale of lingering memories and forsaken possibilities.” Publishers Weekly
“A hauntingly understated love story, set in small town America, that stays with you long after you’ve reluctantly finished reading the final page.” Terence Stamp, Academy Award-nominated actor
“Narrators Kelli O’Hara and Steven Pasquale bring out the beautiful simplicity of this love story…As the narrators alternate chapters, both offer performances that reflect the natural development of the love affair that develops…O’Hara and Pasquale complement each other’s performance with consistent renditions of Richard’s steady speech, reflecting his contemplative nature, and the foreign-born Francesca’s slight accent and soft voice. The dual narration adds to the effectiveness of this quietly stirring romance.” AudioFile
