Now a Hallmark Hall of Fame Television Movie; which I never bothered to watch, and I actually enjoy Hallmark movies I just never got to see this one.
I've been hearing a few comments that it's pretty much The Notebook, which I've never read, nor have I seen the movie. Well I did see the end and that was enough for me, I know it's the top romantic movie of our time, but I don't want to put myself through that.
But maybe after this I'll give the book a try.
I actually took it off my shelf this Saturday to try and read it. Even though a huge part of me was trying really hard to fight the cliche of reading a Valentine's day themed book on the week of Valentines.
Fighting cliches won, that and the fact that I really wanted to finish a book for review. So back on the shelf it sits waiting.
