The first two stories of this book hold the readers attention right from the start. The third, takes a little longer to get involved with, but is well worth the wait, as when it kicks off, the reader is hooked.
Story number one, Tides of Change, is about the relationship between Jeanette and Tom, as she finds out as a teenager that she is pregnant, and their lives are manipulated by her devious brother, Jack. After a stunning start, it quickly moves on with action and emotion as they try to bring their lives together.
Story number two slows the pace a little, as we meet Harry, who after the death of his wife, struggles to get over her and bring up his young son on his own, only to fall for Gina, who is married to Mark... Emotions and intimacy are definitely the theme for this romantic tearjerker, which proves the author to be very capable of cleverly depicting human weaknesses.
Story number three is more complex, as we meet Rick, a deeply unsettled soul, who has an affair with his best friends girlfriend. But the full ramifications of this begin to unravel as the plot unfolds to a level where the reader is completely unable to guess the end. A perfect unpredictable twist winds the story to a succesful conclusion that works brilliantly, putting all the lose ends into perfect perspective balance.
The book is clearly written and will be enjoyed by adult women of all ages and my overall verdict has to be a clear 5 / 5. ( )
