Goodreads: What boundaries would you cross for true love?
That’s the question a grieving mother must answer when she takes in a young street musician she believes can shed light on her daughter’s death—only to find herself falling for him. A sexy but touching love story that will leave you both tantalized and in tears, Jane’s Melody follows a forty-year-old woman on a romantic journey of rediscovery after years of struggling alone.
Sometimes our greatest gifts come from our greatest pain. And now Jane must decide if it’s too late for her to start over, or if true love really knows no limits.
Ope’s Opinion: Let me start this review telling you my perspective – I am a mother of two grown daughters. So I can relate to Jane’s perspective.
I can’t imagine not talking to either of my daughters for a year ( not saying it couldn’t happen, just can’t imagine what it would be like ). Next, I can’t imagine loosing one of my daughters – that must be excruciatingly painful. This book started out very sad and slow. I had great sympathy for Jane. I could understand her trying to figure out what her daughters life was like before she died.
I can see how Jane would want to know Caleb. She thought he had answers to what her daughters life was like before she died. Having said that it was hard for me to jump from her grief to her wanting to have a relationship with Caleb. Their age difference seemed like a very unlikely relationship. Also, her being an educated working woman, I can’t imagine her wanting to be with a man off the streets.
The next chapter is in Jane’s life is the book called Jane’s Harmony.
Rating: Three Chairs – I like the book enough to suggest it to a friend or two.
