    Can't praise this book enough. So beautifully written that I had to stop at times just to catch my breath. An improbable plot involving an older (she is 59) woman's self discovery as a lesbian with a much younger woman is tenderly rendered. The characters had depth and the main character, Mrs. Mercedes Medina appealed to me the most-so much so I found myself falling for her-a testimony to the author's skill. After being happily married (more or less) to her much older husband Patrick (he's 85 an [...]

    For once, I was glad that the font was too small for me. It meant that I had to savor my moments with the story. This was like the fine wine, dark chocolate, aged cheese kind of book. I cherished every moment with it. It wasn't the kind of book that left you tense or anxious in any way. In fact, I felt very little tension in the book. That goes against what I have been taught about writing.The main character, Mrs. Mercedes Medina, is in her sixties. Her husband is 20 years her senior. I love the [...]

    In one word intoxicating. Will reverberate indefinitely through my mind.

    Super great read! This book took me through an extensive range of emotions and I LOVE it for that!

    Maybe once or twice a year comes a read that "sticks with you". This is one of those. A great read about a woman who is much younger than her elderly terminally ill husband and thinks she has a brilliant life - until she makes the aquantance of a young woman at the florists. How she struggles against falling in love again, and how tenderly they both come to love each other is wonderfully described, as you the reader, knowing that this is "right", are turning the pages and willing them onwards to [...]

    From the cover:Elegant, cultured Mercedes Medina is nearing 60 and preparing for the imminent death of her husband, Patrick. An acclaimed cellist twenty five years her senior, Patrick approaches the end of his life with gusto, but for Mrs. Medina, the journey is not so simple. Finding herself drawn to an impetuous woman nearly half her age, she struggles for balance as passion collides with responsibility, desire with loyalty, lust with love, and the present with the future. When Patrick dies an [...]

    Loved it!! I like books which differ from the "crowd", and this one certainly does!You are 59 years old, your 85-year-old husband, a musical genius whom you have loved for a long long time, is dying, and you fall in love with a 29-year-old woman. What to do????What is also different here is that the author is not offering Mrs. Medina any easy solutions; the pace is kind of slow and the reader is given time to think about her own life and her own solutions.It is beautifully written. Would love to [...]

    While I didn't particularly believe in the relationship between the protagonist and her husband (there didn't seem to be any love between them anymore) - I was compelled by Mrs. Medina's struggle to come to terms with her sexuality.

    I picked this up from a bargain bin and it was certainly well worth the purchase. An intriguing look into what you might feel when at the autumn of your life you begin to wonder if you've ever really lived or loved at all

    A beautifully written book about facing a dramatically changed life at a time when most of your peers seem to have it all locked up. I liked the varied lesbian characters and message that life never stops surprising us.

    beautifully written. reminded me of "Mrs Dalloway" at times.
