This book was a great read. I enjoyed how the author used the common language from the time period and country in which the book took place. It was not one of those books where the author says it takes place in Europe, yet all of the mannerism and speech is just like it is here in the U.S.
This book is entertaining and fun getting to see the story unravel from the perspective of both of the characters. The author does really well with the descriptions of the area and the characters, making it easier to visualize what is happening. Also witnessing how they affect each other and help the other one grow.
This book follows the story of a girl that has loved a boy for years and finally gets a chance with him. Their relationship did not start out how you would expect a normal relationship to start. Although you will learn throughout the story that Anna is not your average woman of the late 90s. She is headstrong and determined to make her keep, rather than being a kept woman at home.
Phillip is a smart and well of man from a highly respected family. Has known Anna for ages but never saw anything there until an unexpected event occurs. How does this man develop feelings for an independent woman that is decades ahead of the times for women? You will just have to read this amazing book to find out.
