At heart though, this novel is a portrait of the rise and fall of a relationship - simple - and that's a premise that both limits and frames the events within. After I finished the book I concluded merely that a she was pretty and that b she was in love with Anne.
I read this book in two sittings, only to be abruptly disappointed in the last third of the book by the cliche and offensive ending.

There was a problem adding your email address. A little drawn out. It's a truly beautiful, unforgettable and unique book that I will always cherish. Order by newest oldest recommendations. All in all, an interesting, paes flawed, book. I wish, too, that I hadn't read any reviews immediately before starting the book, because I also wonder whether I might have taken things differently had I not had an I wish I'd read this ten years ago—not because I think I particularly needed it ten years ago, but because there are ten years between Anne and Flannery, and I wonder whether I might have taken the book differently if I'd read it when I was at Flannery's age seventeen, then eighteen rather than Anne's twenty-eight, as I am now.
There are ups and downs, there are smiles and tears.

Generally, I have this idea that there are some protagonists in Lit that are their story and there are others that are used for their story If you mean wanting to read more written by Sylvia Brownrigg, there is a sequel to Pages …more Well, you could get some books, open them up, and read them.

The pain of heartbreak? It was a wonderful book. Though given a charming narrative with particularly gorgeous scenes, I couldn't shake the fact that I absolutely hated the ending.
I seldom read romance novels but this one really exceeded my expectations. And as I said above, I'm now the age she is in the book, and I'd never get involved with a seventeen-year-old, because at that age a ten-year difference is massive.
And the more I think about it, the more I hate the prologue even though it's beautifully written like the re This book killed me.
