Communication skills varied widely between the average man and woman, he’d discovered. For him and Moira, it was as if they spoke entirely different languages and, quite possibly in her case, from some universe not yet discovered.
If we were all punished for our careless failure to realize how important some things are in our life until too late, we’d all be alone and miserable… It’s why we’re given second chances.
It is rare for me to read a book so squeaky clean that I could recommend to my elderly mother’s rather persnickety book club, but Lilac Lane certainly qualifies for the “Church Ladies” set. It is also rare to able to enter a series at book number fourteen and be able to follow the story. While it probably would have been easier to keep track of the myriad characters if I’d had experience with the previous installments, it was not a hardship to keep them straight as brief histories were provided along the way. The plot was interesting with two distinct threads that wove together in an entertaining manner, although the story evolved ever so slowly and the genre appeared to be more women’s fiction or small-town type family drama than contemporary romance. The writing flowed well and was laced with equal measures of angst and wry humor and populated with stubborn yet endearing characters of all ages.
