To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I thought I had read all of Cynthia Freeman's books but I missed this one. She passed away a few years ago. This story is exactly what you expect from Freeman. Girl with Jewish background marries a man she falls for like a ton of bricks. They go through life with a silent problem hovering over their life until one day it's out in the open. How she and Bill go forward with life is the whole story.
You will enjoy this book and will have trouble putting it down.
While good, Come Pour the Wine lacks some of the finer details of Freeman's other books. Character development is not as in depth and the descriptions are not as vivid. Not quite the page turner but not hum drum either.
The book started out okay but then she went all "Harlequin Romance" on me. I've read some of her other work and didn't find this problem so I'll try another book and hope that her Mills & Boon style of writing was just a passing phase.
Not up to the excellence of her other books. The storyline seemed to write itself, and it felt too long. Fortunately I have read many of Ms Freeman's other books so I know she's a great writer but I don't recommend this one.
