This review is from: This Nearly Was Mine: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
Farkas writes a poignant tale of chicklit romance that is more than a romance novel. It's about the consequences of the choices we make in life. Maybe not so much the regrets of Annie's happy time in Spain but more of the “what ifs” of what might have been if she hadn't left and met her future husband. Reading in first person memoir as Annie relives romances, the beauty of Spain, sicknesses, the existence of her very heart and soul gives us more than a character in a book but a friend that stays with us. I think that is what I enjoyed most about Farkas' writing that it goes deeper, giving us a thinking novel something to sink my teeth into. The characters are real and the storyline fresh giving us more than we bargained for. So if the reader seeks fluff novels, this isn't it. But if you seek something deeper, something real, emotional and raw then this is the needed escape. Take a journey to Spain and back with Annie you won't regret it.
