This book is...different. And I say that in a good way. I don't think I've ever read a book that was mostly dialogue before. I did enjoy the book. However I think I enjoyed it more because I saw the movie it was based on first. If you've ever seen the movie Hope Springs with Colin Firth and Minnie Driver, I think you would enjoy reading this book and comparing it to the film.

I had this on my Wish List for a while and was happy to receive it, however I found the style a little too unusual and gave it up after about 50 pages. An Englishman escapes to a tiny town in New England to get away from his broken heart, and "discovers love again with Manday, an attendant at the Shining Shores nursing home." When his ex arrives to woo him back to her and his native land, he has to choose between his new love and the woman he's known for years." By the author of The Graduate.
