A light American romance set in the 1960s, featuring the young school-leaver Mariette, who falls in love with the handsome store clerk Thayne. They have something of a whirlwind romance, against the wishes of her parents... and gradually discover more and more problems.

The prologue to the story describes a period when Mariette is at her parents' home, pregnant.. and feeling regret over something to do with her husband. It's cleverly done, leaving me wondering what would happen to bring her to this state.

The book is Christian, but the theme is mostly low-key (despite Thayne being very devout) and quite thought-provoking in places.

I found this free for the Kindle, and enjoyed it overall. The writing is good and the pace about right, even though some of the characters seem a little flat. ( )
