This book is a really good read especially
for those who enjoy more than the ordinary romance novel. The characters are well drawn and although the end may surprise you, on reflection you realize it couldn't have happened any other way. I am so looking forward to the next work of this writer.

Having grown up in the 50's this had great meaning to me. However, I think my children should read it to better understand the culture their parents grew up in.

This author knows how to weave a story and keep it moving. It is hard too put one of his books down once you start reading. I am extremely pleased with his work.

This is probably not a book you would want your juvenile to read.

THEY WERE FROM TWO DIFFERENT WORLDS, YET LIVED IN THE SAME TOWN.  THEIR LOVE WOULD NEVER FADE.  HE WAITED 30 YEARS FOR HER AND MYSTERIOUS INCIDENTS BROUGHT THEM TOGETHER AGAIN.  255 PAGES

Discover what everyone is talking about

We have all heard the simplistic tales of growing up in the fifties.  Good clean living, no drugs, you wait until you are married to have sex, you never talk back to your parents and if you get out of line in school prepare to get a licking.

There were always two truths to the stories behind the scenes.  Both were accurate but they were different in perception and therein lies the paradox of life in a small town in the fifties.  Come along and see some of the things that really happened in small town America in the 50's.  277 pages.​

William Evans books are being read all over the world in places like Australia, India, the UK, Denmark, Brazil, Japan, Spain, France, the Netherlands, and Canada.  Come join the fun.

Intriguing love story! Kept my imagination pondering the outcome of all the twist-and-turn events in the characters' lives all the way to the very end. The story played out like a Lifetime Movie in my mind. Maybe this novel will make it to The Big Screen. The author filled the reader in on a bit of history taking place throughout the years as the characters aged. Love prevails times three! Will recommend Mr. Evans' novel to friends for an enjoyable read.

Read this in one sitting and wanted to find out how our writer was going to resolve the situation and was not disappointed. I am not usually a fan of the private eye genre but this one held my interest. Writing about a different time period is sometimes difficult but this writer has obviously done his research.
