It too me nearly a week to read this book. I found I couldn't rush through it and comprehend what the author was trying to convey. Its a beautiful story. Not so much a romance but a story of dreams lost and found, hope, destiny and of course love. I got so much more out of it than just a pleasant read. Really makes you think.
Not your usual love story. Great humanity. Beautiful prose.
By the author of Rose's Garden this is a well written novel that will have you thinking and in the end you find yourself taking it with you. A beautiful story about two people who had never noticed each other before but were always around each other. This isn't really about romance, it is about life and human needs. It's well worth the time. If you have read Rose's Garden then you will like this also. if not it is a lovely novel on it's own.
A really sweet book. A fun read.
I have loved "Lamb in Love" since discovering it about 20 years ago! vI enjoyced listening to the audio very much. It is a true LOve story of many layers--gentle and tender and funny. I am using it as my choice for a ladies book club read. It is a book to savor and reread often.
In the tiny English village of Hursley, two lifelong acquaintances have never given each other a second glance. Until, on the very night of man's first moon landing, a precipitous passion alights on their middle-aged existence. Out for a stroll, Norris Lamb--postmaster, stamp collector, and church organist--spies spinster Vida Stephen dancing with glorious, uncharacteristic abandon by the moonlit fountain of the mansion where she tends the mute, retarded son of an absent employer. Norris senses a buried bravado and romance, a fragility and loneliness, that match his own. And he sets out, covertly, to woo her.
