The way she gradually changes into a healthy and attractive person, and gains self-confidence is one of the most interesting parts. In contrast, for Dexter, who seemed to be so gifted and happy, born to be in the center of things, god sends the coldest of winds, from time to time. I guess,life is like a box of chocolates, in the long run you never know what you'll get.

A twenty year compilation of annual July 15th's of two characters, Emma Morley and Dexter Mayhew. Light read that flooded with British and dark humour throughout. I'm a sucker for stories following the characters through its lifetime, but I can't help but wonder, must all romantic novels end with one of the lovers dying?
