I’m one of those people who will read the first sentence in a book to determine if I wish to purchase it. For me, a good novel gets me in the beginning and “moves” me to turn one page, then another and then another. And that’s exactly what Nancy Farkas did with “This Nearly Was Mine.”
At first, I thought, “the south of Spain?” But, found out that I was a willing companion from town-to-town. Also, as I went along for the ride, I felt that these were not fictional characters, but real people with real lives, families and experiences.
Generally, I am NOT a love/romance story kind of reader, but I needed to give my mind a rest and I found relaxation in the flow of the storyline and enjoyed the writer’s humor.
