There are several reasons I awarded this book five stars, even though romance isn't my wheelhouse. It's a gentle book, with no exploding spaceships (which are my favorite), a sweet but not goopy story about two people who discover love.
It's also a book which takes extended family seriously. Any adult knows that REAL romance had better take the Others into consideration, or at best you get some mildly pleasant dating experiences.
It also treats the matter of religious faith seriously, managing to take that aspect of each partner's life into consideration and incorporating it into their story.
Ronnie, the female lead, is in all ways a real person, manifested primarily in the fact that she is not built like a supermodel. She's much more a Ruben's figure than the stick art seen on TV. Zaftig; voluptuous: these are the words that lovers of women with this kind of figure have used to describe them. I am TOTALLY on board with this concept!
And finally, something that is near and dear to my heart: Ronnie and Marc are fully grown adults, who have both been burned by life, and who have a pretty good idea of what they want in a relationship. That is most definitely NOT the dynamic of jumping in bed with every person who comes along! That enterprise is limited, I believe, to the very young who are still looking for ways to have their hearts broken and their lives ruined. Instead, because of the experiences they have had in the past, and the longing in their hearts, they are both ready to commit to a long-term relationship very quickly. That doesn't lessen the significance of the relationship in the slightest; and their commitment doesn't mean that they get married the same weekend. It just means they agree to -BE- with each other, and to have a fixed date for the proposal to take place. This can ONLY happen with two people who both know what it is they are looking for in a mate, and recognize that in each other. It's a real thing.
