Drive-in Movies, Doo-wop Music The southern ‘twang I guess you would call it, the whole dialog in itself had me a little confused I am glad I stuck with it.

Jake and Lily have had a special bond since they were kids playing in the woods even though her daddy has told her to stay away from him. And she does, after catching her boyfriend Chad with Pat Peaches, the school slut at a party.

I reckon they see me as a popular, happy-go-lucky girl who loves life. Unfortunately, Lily doesn’t get much in return in the form of a loving and caring husband.

Now, after a good nights sleep, I still don’t know if I can convey them. They had their This book just about had me sobbing at times. Those words hit me with such force I swear I could hear and feel what the heroine felt. Where this book really shone was in the way the author managed to transport you to the era’s with music, fashion,historical events and how women were perceived during these times.

In a way I was glad he didn’t accept the news with happiness. I was hooked from page one until the startling ending.

Jake Tatlow failed me. No eBook available Amazon. Lily was a fun, tragic, in First off I have to thank Taryn for writing a fantastic review that had me leapfrogging everything on my huge TBR list and going headfirst into a book that would have otherwise been off my radar. Sprinsg hardest reviews to write are for sprihgs books that hit me the deepest, the ones I love the most. Yes, I cried a few times during this book. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Lily of the Springs.

The story starts off in Kentucky and travels through the mid-west as the story unfolds. I cried, I got angry and I laughed. Well…our break up was the reason I got together with Jake. This is one of those books that captured my heart and will never let go I loved it and I would recommend it to every one!!!!!

There’s so much to say about this thf but I can’t bring myself to give anything away. More than happy actually. Perhaps at some time these men really did love us, at least I hope that’s the case for Jake, and that they just don’t know how to love. This review could go on and on but I’m going to stop now. And this book did.

From Lily’s home on Opal Springs Ridge to a four-year stint at an army base in New Boston, Texas, and finally, to life on their own in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Lily struggles to maintain a rocky marriage with a moody, immature husband while raising two daughters. There were a few scenes I would have liked greater detail on but for the most part the ending was very satisfying.

How do you see yourself? Lily Foster is about to learn pf playing with a bad boy has it’s ups and downs. All the while Carole does an excellent job of describing the settings as the story develops. What it is is a beautiful story spanning almost two decades of one woman’s rather ordinary life but Bellacera keeps you awake until the early hours of the morning turning the page nevertheless. Don’t know how the heroine or anyone could of stayed with that jerk. What are you afraid of? But, like Lily, the reader can see a glimmer, albeit a faint glimmer, of a man who probably does love Lily and hates himself for his treatment of her.

I hope Carole Bellacera continues to write more books similar to this one.
