This book contains an affair with a younger man but is full of dark and bizarre events.
Love and lust get confused here. The night of the drug and the Bethany scene are just creepy. After this the rest makes no sense.
Her husband, soon to be an ex, has spit their money, is without a job and mails her the deed to their house. The problem is, the author has also already mentioned there is a mortgage and the wife is worried about making the payments. You do not have deeds when someone holds a mortgage, so the husband, without a job, could not have possibly paid it off and sent her a deed!
Running his motor bike into the side of a limo on purpose also made no sense. He has her address, he has her email and phone number. He can clearly contact her again.
She decides instantly he has a concussion because his pupils are pinpoints and then does not have him transported to a hospital?! Nothing makes sense.
No one just gives away a million + dollar object especially to someone responsible for THAT night!
Lots of sculpting with clay happens, she spends the last of her bank account on 3d printing. The end result are 3 flowers, one of which we hear ALL about. It seems she designed them to be inserted where only a female can insert things so it gives her pleasure. The tulip petals apparently are capable of reaching higher. Say what? Utterly bizarre.
So after this awful and odd waking up, and silence on the part of the not wonderful young man, she then flies to Vienna. He plays cat and mouse instead of being up front and in person. For some reason she and we are supposed to think this is normal, fine, signifying he is somehow almost unearthly.
There is nothing here about love. There is instead lust and darkness. Having sex on a roof top while he is holding her, otherwise she'd plummet downward and die. Orchestrated by him a male power event, not a giving event as it was meant to be taken.
Writing with a sharp pen on her skin after drugging her somehow become a sexual event, until she is waking up.
Nothing here is romantic, or about great love or even erotic. It is just bizarre and creepy and dark.
Eve Armanton is 48 years old. She and her husband have a son who is taking a gap year from college. He is a medical student, so this time will assist him with his education. She and her husband are miserable in their current relationship, he is going through some sort of midlife crisis and calls things off with her.
Micajah Burnett is 28 years old and the son of an old family friend. He is a musician, and it is through his love of music that they will come together and experience a time of growth and self-discovery that will change their lives forever.
Eve finds an antique violin while antiquing. The violin is broken and Micajah helps her to fix it. This book was really enjoyable. I enjoyed the fact that this was an older woman dating a younger man. I also enjoyed the fact that the ending of the book was realistic. I enjoyed this book as a journey, the journey was for Eve to find herself outside of being a mother and a wife, she found herself as a woman. And in her life, this was the best thing that could have happened to her. It was well written and just great overall. Five stars.
There was no Larry for me but it was far too close to the bones of a chapter of my own life,
so I put it to down for another time when I would feel more able to tackle it.
Planning to read a chapter a day, I sat down with the book yesterday.
I devoured it in one sitting.
It is the most beautiful book.
I knew the writing would be exquisite but the authenticity of the story, the characters
and their responses is indisputable. It's an odd turn of phrase to use about a novel,
but you've conjured up a piece of reality.
It's an important book for many reasons that I'm sure you know including its understanding
of the nature of Love, about not allowing the fetters of Society to prevent us living Life to the
full despite the risks and that Great Love is never really over.
It will be an inspiration to those who have not experienced such things yet and a comfort
to those who have.
