Dale's modern characters and complex situations read well, and the conflicts between characters highlight the fact that some heartbreaks last longer than a lifetime. Simplicity delves deep
in this tale.
Adele Martin's attempts to make her life over completely have failed miserably. After a long estrangement from her mother and her mother's death, Adele leaves her city life to return to her mother's cottage in the mountains.
In doing so, she discovers more about herself, and her past, than she may want to. She also discovers that the longest journeys in life can sometimes take a person back to the very beginning, and that sometimes that is the best place to be. (FOREVER, Jan., 384 pp., $6.99)
