Seems Like Old Times [Large Print]

An emotionally powerful tale of love, loss, and second chances. Lee Reynolds is unprepared for the torrent of memories that fill her when she returns to her small hometown. She fled soon after high school, breaking ties with her mother and friends, including her high school sweetheart. The reason why is a secret she divulged to only one person, the aunt she turned to during that devastating period. Lee Reynolds of New York City has achieved more fame, wealth and success than little Lisa Marie Reynolds from Miwok, California, ever imagined possible when she was growing up. Now, she plans to quickly ready her deceased mother’s home for sale, and then to hurry back to New York. But she soon discovers that, as much as she doesn’t want to be there, events conspire to cause her to finally face her past. The most difficult part of that past is Tony Santos. The poor son of a Mexican ranch hand he, like young Lisa, had big dreams for his future. For a while, the two of them saw their future together. But the ugliness of prejudice and ambition, expectation and failure, got in the way. Lee is surprised to learn Tony has moved back to Miwok to raise his young son. Little does she expect that her feelings for him are still so strong…or his for her. But it is possible to forget the past? Or if not to forget, to forgive? Both she and Tony have changed a lot. Yet seeing him, simply talking with him, she finds that in her heart, it seems like old times…

As I read about Lee’s struggles to become the woman she wanted to be I recognized my own struggles to…

Lost Loves! This book was a good read. It made me think back real quickly in my life to see if there was a lost love (didn’t find one, so I kept reading).The characters were real. I could actually see this scenario occurring in real life. There were a couple of slow spots in the book, but I think it was necessary so that the reader could get a complete picture of what was truly going on when the characters were apart from each other. This was also during a time when Tony’s world completely fell…

I just finished this and I’m looking for more I wanted to write this review before the tears dried. At first I thought that the book was just a filler for me. I got it for $.99 and it would be something to lull me to sleep at night. That’s how the book started. It was a cut and dried story as old as romance novels, girl meets boy, they move apart to success in their fields. They meet again in later life back in their home town where he’s raising his adorable son all alone. They fall back in love and live happily ever after. Except that’s…
