    1. I read this book many years ago and thought of it and looked and found it used on . I think I liked it more the first time but I enjoyed it again. It's the story of two people who are both married to other people, meet, fall in love and continue the romance thru decades, WW2 and other situations. It was hard to believe you could keep this going with so many roadblocks in the way. It did end in a realistic way and it was sad but also a triumph because they did love each other to the end and beyon [...]

    2. This book was recommended by a friend and, out of mere curiosity, I took upon reading it. Quite a change for me, and although I rather enjoyed it, it was one of those books that almost left me in a rather saddened mood. It's a story of life. How as an adult in your 30's you live with the future as a mere speck of time that is so far in the distance you needn't worry with it. And before you know it, all the plans you made and ideas you had have yet to come to fruition and you're out of time. I en [...]

    3. First read this back when it was originally published. I knew then, of course, that it's springboard was the relationship between screen legends Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn, which Kanin had already covered in TRACY AND HEPBURN (much to Hepburn's dismay - she un-friended Kanin for years thereafter).What I didn't know back then was that Kanin stole the chance meeting between his lovers from the 1945 film BRIEF ENCOUNTER! Be interesting to know if this was commented upon at the time.Anyway, [...]

    4. A down-to-earth story of infidelity. The story goes in a totally opposite route to that taken in Anna Karenina. Freeman and Sheila are madly in love in the most inopportune of time. But they didn't let the haze of it all get the best of them. They kept sane and tried to prevent making a mess of their relations. Come to think of it, THAT makes this story somehow unrealistic after all, we tend to be irrational when in love. But then again, their's is just one of the many kinds of love. A rare kind [...]

    5. A story of life - Some parts are good, others are bad. Some might be frowned upon but it is still life. Very sweet.
