"An older person looks back in regret at love lost or stolen. This poignant feeling figures in many novels and short stories. But when it is used like a bludgeon for the sole purpose of making readers cry, it becomes chintzy. These novels make for quick and easy movies because the form is so empty it's simple to fill with a director's vision."
Los Angeles Times Book Review - Susan Salter Reynolds (10/10/1999)
