When The One That Got Away Comes Back (Book Review: The Love Market, Carol Mason)
'Fess Up. Whether one admits it or not, in our loves there always one, as Judy Garland sang, who "got away." There is that one person you loved who just couldn't be: it could have worked, it should have worked, it never would have worked. For whatever reason, you will always carry a torch for that person. What would you do if that person came back to your life? That is the premise of Carol Mason's novel "The Love Market," and I have to admit I related. Of course, we have all had that dream, that fantasy that love would conquer all, because, let's face it, it never does in real life. This started a little slowly, but once it got going, it was chock full of surprises, and honestly not as predictable as it could have been. It gave me a feeling of being alive, and in love, and that's a great compliment.
