Loved the story, what happens with Scott and Lisa? Need a follow up book, and the ring, what happens to the guy who gave it to Annie? He must be lurking out there somewhere. Hooked me in and made me cry.
I found Felicity Chapman's "Connected: Bonds Deep" a deeply interesting read. There are a range of reasons why. These include:- Tension of opposites - corporate vs environmental, privileged vs poverty, men and women, controlled and purposeful vs free and spontaneous, confidence vs lacking confidence, ordinariness vs excitement, higher causes vs short term passion, and there are others.
The Jungian themes of dark and golden shadows re hatred and attraction. Neil's hatred of Lisa. Lisa's love of Sean and other examples.
Unrequited desire and attraction and naming it.
The gutsiness and lack of fear shown by Michelle she does things beyond politeness and social taboos.
Having a cause greater than self to give us a higher sense of life.
Intuition and psychic senses.
Desire and attraction outside our committed relationships.
Attraction and friendship.
Attraction motivated by things like pleasure, desire, spontaneous energy and lack of interest in the other and ongoing relationship.
Long term relationships commitment, power, decision making, taking the other for granted, finding joy and spontaneity that revitalise things that can be dormant for periods. It's a fun read with deep themes running strong.
