I had this book in my wardrobe awhile back. J lend it to me to read it but i thought it had a boring title and the wordings didnt look attractive to me. So it took me ages to actually really sit down and read it properly. But I loved every bit of it. Regretted that i didnt take effort to start reading it while the movie was in the cinemas back then. But i managed to catch it online and it was as wonderfully scripted as the book.
Two unhappy people’s lives become entwined when they have a life changing romance. Adrienne is a woman who’s trying to decide whether to stay in her unhappy marriage or not. Her life changes when Paul, a doctor who is traveling to reconcile with his estranged son, checks into an inn in a North Carolina beach town where she is staying.
One sentence – It’s never too late for second chances. Agreed!
But little did i expect it came with so much more twist and before i realised it, tears rolled n i was sobbing with heartache. Paul, played by Richard Gere, offered so much more than a companion to Adrienne. A second chance of love and thus made living more worthwhile when it seemed the world was about to close in on her. But Paul left a little later to find his son and they promised to keep in touch, and from there onwards, fate decided to step in. 😥
It’s a nice movie to watch, gives you a little smile and reminds you of the sweeter things in life. Richard and Diane made this movie enjoyable and were lovely on-screen together, it’s worth the watch.
Definitely a must read and a must watch. When u’re not feeling sappy that is.
Adrienne Willis: I know you’ve only ever known your father and me. And I love Jack, because he is your father. But there’s another kind of love, Amanda. One that gives you the courage to be better than you are, not less than you are. One that makes you feel that anything is possible. I want you to know that you could have that. I want you to hold out for it.
