This is the story of Lillian, a single woman reflecting on her choices and imagining her future.

Now it's the early nineties, and she's taking stock. Throughout her life, walking the unpaved road between traditional and modern choices for women, Lillian grapples with parental disappointment and societal expectations, wins and loses in love, and develops her own brand of wisdom.

A lovely, quiet read exploring the sensuality and various love affairs of a single lady from a certain era. For a reader who enjoys a slow-pace.

Disappointing, boring, couldn't wait for it to end. You would think that the author was writing from the perspective of a 75 yr old. I am almost 62 and could not relate to the old fashioned style of life that I surely did not experience in my life!
