The writer sets the scene so well. I enjoyed the minor details used to breathe life into the story. For instance, the buying of cork-heeled sandals to drag along the ground since the brakes on the bicycle were so bad, or that Bambi showed her his Zippo lighter. I also liked the description of the actress friend who sounds like she's based on Sophia Loren. Simply, I'm intrigued by the setting, enjoy the author's fine descriptive powers and want to know what happens next.

This is a book about falling in love, searching for love, and finally about growing up and growing older. It is very interesting and will hold your interest.

I really like the flow and mixed thoughts in this story. The confusion and mixed emotions of life encounters were described very well. Thank you

Should be made in a movie. The scenery should be seen not read about. I love the main character, worthy of a good actor to do.

I quite liked the begining of the book because it was flowing along and I could really picture what was happening, however I felt it totally bogged down when the heroïne goes into the anguish of falling in love as an adult,there was just too many pages spent on wondering and asking the eternal questions about the relationship she was begining. For me the story totally lost its momentum, I did not want to know what happened next, so I stopped reading.

I did not like the writing style. Nor could I warm to any of the characters. I received this as a free book and was not sure about it.

As with just about about every free Kindle book I have read the book is badly edited. This makes me hesitant about reading these freebies. I would not like to be negative about new writers and hope that comments about editing, etc. would be taken in the spirit in which it is intended, namely as thoughts on how they can go back to their books to make them better.

There isn't really anything more I want to add to this review.

Christine is looking for the real meaning of love. At three very distinct points in her life, she has very intense relationships that will help permanently shape her as a woman. In their own ways, each relationship reveals a different aspect to intimacy and companionship in addition to physical love within a relationship. One can only wonder what filled in the blanks for the rest of Christine's life.

What a lovely, lavish book this is. It did not even strike me until about half way through that the book was about lesbian relationships, because the focus is not so much on who Christine loved, but is instead on the simple fact that she does indeed love. It is not about the who, it is about the how. The book is achingly romantic in many ways, and very European. In fact, at many points I saw the book playing in my mind as a cool French film. And I loved every minute of it.

We are privy to the development of Christine as a character over many years. While we see this development in short bursts, we still learn all we need to know about Christine. As a woman, I found Christine to be a bit cloying, needy, and desperate, but I think that is the type of character that was necessary for this story to work. Christine could not be a perfect woman, that would have made for a very dull novel. No, I think Christine's intense vulnerability was necessary for each of the three relationships to work.

I personally left the book wanting to know more about Christine. The novel is not packed with a lot of action, or a fast moving plot. Its beauty is in its simplicity. I felt it sing to my heart, and in many ways I related to Christine, despite the fact that all my relationships have been with men.

I think this would be a good book to any reader who is open minded. The physical aspects of the relationships are not emphasized or graphic, and again the book is about love. I hesitate to label this as a gay/lesbian novel, because I think a whole lot of people might miss out on a great story. Try it, you may be quite surprised.
To me, the central topic of this novel is the almost universal human desire to connect with others on deep romantic and sexual levels. The story explores the question of whether we should simply give up on or remain open to such deep connection as we age and experience disappointments in love and life.

Christine, the main character and speaker in this first-person novel, courageously seeks love in spite of her fears of being rejected. It is not easy for her to reach out for what she most wants, which is emotional and sexual intimacy with a woman. This is in part because of societal disapproval, but even more because of her own fears of being wounded in love. Although she never entirely attains the love she seeks, at least not in a long lasting relationship, she comes to the realization that by remaining open to deep love and pursuing powerful emotional and physical attractions, she is embracing life and its greatest joys, as she experiences a powerful sense of aliveness through her emotional risks.

Her courageous pursuit is expressed in three novellas within the larger novel, each in a distinct time period and location--the mid-sixties in Southern France; the 1980s in Paris; and post-millennium California. As Christine ages and matures she also remains vulnerable to the emotional roller coaster of romantic love. Her narrative voice is trustworthy, smart and sophisticated yet humble, and very likable. Her introspective journey through time and love is one I thoroughly enjoyed accompanying her on, and one that led me to reflect on my own experiences with love, loss, passion, and emotional fear and courage. It's a page turner in which the suspense is in watching Christine grow as she pursues the love she truly seeks--two steps forward and one back--yet with gradually increasing self awareness, skill, and kindness and acceptance towards herself and those she loves.

Entertaining and profound, this novel deeply, openly and wisely explores the inner emotional landscape of human love and sexuality.
