The Last Time They Met

by Anita Shreve
read by Blair Brown

      Anita Shreve has been a favorite of mine from the first books I read, All He Ever Wanted and Body Surfing. I am a big fan, and when these audio books became available I jumped at reviewing them. I am new to the world of audio, but since migraine headaches are a part of my life, itís good to close my eyes and just listen to a book. I have to admit, the audio arena will take over one day and printed books will be a distant memory.†

I enjoyed this captivating tale of Linda Fallon and Thomas Janes. I am a sucker for a romance, so this book was very interesting to my romantic tendencies. I had to have it. I enjoyed the way that Ms. Shreve told the history of Linda and Thomas, and I, as the reader, got to know about their romantic rendezvous.†

I wasnít disappointed - from the first page of listening to this novel until the very end. It makes me believe that I could miss a love, but find him again if it was meant to be; and the love would still be binding between the two of us despite the years we have spent apart from each other. Love never dies, and this is why I love reading romance novels and writing them.†

The Last Time They Met traces Lindaís life at the ages of seventeen, twenty-six and then fifty-two, when Thomas becomes a fixture in her life.† A great novel, and I tremendously enjoyed listening to every moment of it by the talented Blair Brown.† Pick up The Last Time They Met, and take a ride with romance.† What a ride it is!
