Format: Paperback
I'm not surprised to see that I am the first person to review this book which was published in 1986.

It's so dull I can't believe any publisher even considered it.

In more skilful hands, the idea of a man still remaining in love with a girl he knew briefly 30 years earlier might have worked out but, alas, Jones does not have this deft touch.

Instead we are supposed to believe that this Romeo buries himself in the Far East, where he builds up a business and has innumerable love affairs, but on a trip back to England rekindles the old flame.

The only problem is that the love of his life is ill, 30 years older, living in a kind of commune in Wales with her blind son, a wheelchair-bound girl, an Igor whose mighty body contains a gentle heart within, a mentally-disturbed girl and a rebellious daughter.

Despite this, our hero falls in love with his old sweetheart all over again, gives up his business in the East and marries her.

Without giving the plot away, I suggest the reader recalls Love Story and may guess what happens. Alas, there is no delicious Ali McGraw to drool over, just a non-entity as dull and unbelievable as the main character

It took me a week to read this and, as I would not inflict it on anyone else, my advice is to steer clear.
