The decisions made, and friendships forged over time helped with being able to make good life choices. Running was the metaphor of life's struggles played out in real time long with the various class issues and other annoyances that came to light as life and love have a way of doing when you least expect it. The story was well written and became harder to put down with each chapter I read.
Best Gift for the Runner in Your Life
I haven't been able to put down this love story! It's one of the best romantic novels I have read and as a runner, I love the fact that the main characters are both members of a track club. I am thankful I have a loving husband and don't have to deal with the dating scene, but this novel has brought back lovely memories of those first chance meetings that turn into something big.
Gaston's book is addicting - the juxtaposition between running and love, having wealth and living in wealth - all add depth to this multi-dimensional book. The advanced vocabulary introduces the setting and characters with an energy that is carried throughout the book. Readers tag along with Farrah and Jude as they navigate the course of life and grow with each new turn. Pleasing to runners and non-runners alike, this book is a must!
