5.0 out of 5 stars A great use of Peter Pan in a wonderful romance, 20 Mar. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Second Star to the Right (Mass Market Paperback)
After an ugly divorce, ad exec Faye O'Neill leaves Chicago for London accompanied by her two young children (Tom and Maddie). Faye feels lucky that she managed to rent the house the trio now shares with another American expatriate Dr. Jack Graham and its owner crazy Wendy Forrester. Wendy swears that she is the model used by Barrie in Peter Pan.
As Faye becomes fond of her elderly landlady, her two children remain unhappy until Jack begins to enchant them. Jack sees the magic is inside Faye and her children and wants to become part of it. He now believes in love. However, while Faye's heart pleads for happy ever after, her brain says Prince Charming is a male chauvinist hoax.
SECOND STAR TO THE RIGHT is a great romantic fantasy that pays homage to Peter Pan. Seeking the references to J.M. Barrie's work adds much delight to an enchanting tale. The lead characters will move readers with their need to believe even when they doubt. The two children and Wendy provide Pan-like touches while the landlady's daughter deserves the hook treatment for tinkering with her mother's affection. No one will feel they lost their shadow to an open window as Mary Alice Kruesi succeeds with her logical yet romantic deference to Peter Pan.
