I finished this book a few days ago. Yet, it still has stayed with me. I savored every moment. I knew nothing about Evelyn but through her lover, Marco, I got to know who Evelyn was and I liked her. The only reason I did not mention Evelyn's sister, Rhonda, and Rhonda's daughter, Olivia, as people that knew Evelyn is because they did not truly know who she was either.

Enlightening journeys in Italy and Asia, brought Rhonda, Olivia, and Evelyn closer then they could ever imagine. Both places were so beautiful. It was like I was there. Some day I hope to visit both places for real. All of the people that Rhonda and Olivia met along the way, became primary characters as well. Each one added to the story. I felt that Rhonda and Olivia's parts were equally shared. The author has a new fan in me. The Absence of Evelyn is a soulful read filled with heartwarming characters, and a rich infused story that will stick with you long after you have finished the last page! ( )
