Let me start off by saying it is written in the first person, in the heroines point of view.
Kay is a woman lost inside herself. She has no memory of her past, where she came from, or how she got there. The only memory she has is waking up on a train knowing she was nineteen years old, that someone at sometime may have called her Kay, & she lost her true love. Now seventy-five years later, she still has no answers. The only things she does have a grip on, are, she's over ninety years old with the body she had when she got off the train at 19, she can't cry, & she yearns the loss of her true love. WHAT???? You say! Oh, yea, something is afoot with all of that! Now even weirder, the new job she has started is stirring up all kinds of memories, bad & good, but not everyone is happy she is working at her place of business! Is she to be a lost soul searching for answers forever? She thought so, until she sees a boy that feels so familiar to her that it stirs up feelings in her she thought were long died. She now realizes she can not leave. She must find the answers to her questions no matter what. Could he be her long lost true love? Could this be the place she lived? Or is it all in her head?
The story in short, was a good read, pretty predictable, but would recommend. With that being said, I only had two problems with it. The first was that sometimes I felt the author lost the characters age. She was to be over ninety years old. Yes, she may have had a younger body, but the fact remains her mind is 'old'. In that, some of her actions & thoughts were not that of the ninety year old but that of a much younger person. The second thing, I'm someone who likes to see the bad person get theirs. In this story, without giving anything away, the author was kinder to mr/mrs bad person. Left me with the thought, "Very odd!?" Other than those two little corks of mine, I enjoyed the book. I think it had a difference to it that was refreshing.
