This was a new to me author. I really enjoy the story a lot. It is a little short, but it was meant to be that way because, even though I read it alone, is part of the Never Too Late anthology that features characters of 50 years old or older. I loved the concept and it has given me the opportunity of getting to know new authors like I did on this story.
I loved the way the story was told, alternating the past and the present. I liked the struggles Maggie had about her feeling and how much love, regret and doubt there was in her. Even though I liked her and I liked Jane too, I found them so frustrating at times, considering the love it was obvious was there and how little would it take to make things work, both of them were willing to sacrifice so little to make things better. I was mad at them for that.
Jo was a nice character, but I guess she was too nice, too perfect, everything I dislike. I guess she was good and I don’t doubt everyone will love her, but I just prefer more imperfect characters, maybe a little more like Maggie, even with the moments she made me angry. Overall it was a bittersweet and beautiful story.
