Customer Review

on 24 July 2004
I must admit this was not the most exciting or intersting book I have read by this author.
I found the pace of the story very slow and not at all as gripping as past novels (The unbelonging and Waiting in the twilight).
Romance tells the story of a family all living together under the same roof. Its main characters consist of two sisters Desiree and Verona, Desiree the elder sister is married with two children. This marriage is far from perfect as her husband is unsupportive, overbearing, unreasonable and continuously takes her for granted. In turn this has lead to unspoken grievances and unresolved issues which have been left to fester over the years.
Verona has personal issues surrounding her confidence and physical appearance following a sexual assult in her childhood, resulting in her seeking solace in food and the relentless reading of romantic novels in which she imagines herself as the heroin. She also finds herself sliping from on unsuitable relationship to another in her hope of finding her knight in shining armour.
The problems within the families' relationship only come to light when Desiree's husband's grandparents come from Jamaica to stay with them. It is here individual's feelings; fears and deep-seated secrets are revealed and expressed.
