From the corner of my eye, I saw Jane approaching.  Standing from my seat, I raised my arm, letting her lean into me.“I hate this,” she said.“I know you do.

I loved this book. Such an unexpected ending . I found myself tearing up, it has so much meaning and love. The everyday lives of people do get in the way and it just shows that we all need to remember that feeling of love when we first met out significant other. It's never to late to embrace each others love.
