I'm sorry to hear about your boyfriend's passing. That's rough, and I definitely see how you would want the characters to have the second chance you never got. I know it's hard, missing him.

I equate Demott with the guy I was briefly engaged to because he was a sweetie and everyone else thought it was a great idea. Totally identified with the way Raleigh felt resentful at having to feel guilty because she hadn't thought to return his calls. I thought Sibella wrote that wonderfully well, because I remember how it felt to unthinkingly cause that sort of hurt ("You couldn't pick Fielding?") and not even realize I was doing it until too late.

If it touched us both where we live, it must be a good series, huh? Smile


Simply speaking, yes the series is rather a good one. Most emotionally provoking novels (happy or sad) tends to become a gem in my book.

Thanks for your word of comfort; sometimes life's biggest regrets stems from unintentionally hurting someone who doesn't deserve that wrath. But Sean's memories will always stay with me, I'm forever grateful that we had the chance to patched up before he drew his last breath.

With that said, I've realized now more than ever that sometimes our own personal life experience (particular in recent events) would string us to vote for any particular couple. Which makes this series especially hard to endure, though I have no doubt that I would continue to do so, simply because Sibella's writing is so pleasantly good.

Just finished The Rivers Run Dry, book two in the Raleigh Harmon series. Liked it a lot. Need to work on some review books before I get to do book three. (sob!) I'm really enjoying the series. Can't wait till I am caught up.

Looks like it's time to start a new thread to continue the discussion. This one has reached it's limit.

I'll keep this thread open another day before locking to further comments. Hopefully a new one will be up and running by then.
