    Do you like a War Romance? This is an autographed copy of a book that I don't remember receiving until I started the story. I seldom re-read anything but I did this one. There are two stories intertwined and of course, you get the happily ever after which is what I like to read. Do you like a War Romance?

    Pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this book. Loved the journals and the history that Melinda got to delve into about her grandparent's past.

In fact, I must have met the author, Geri Krotow at some point because there is a personal inscription in the book, and I use her personalized pen to make shopping lists in the kitchen. The book, however, just wasn't for me. I found the theme kind of charming: heroine discovers true meaning of love by witnessesing (through her grandparents' journals) tests of real love during one of life's greatest trials - the Second World War. My biggest issue with the book was the lack of authenticity with the voices of the heroine's grandparents. We're reading journals of first, her grandmother in Nazi occupied Belgium for whom English is her second language. But the book is peppered with American English jargon and colloquialisms pulling me out of the story. When the heroine's grandmother mentioned her desire to move to the 'suburbs' in a 1946 entry, I almost gave up just then. First, suburbs as they are now perceived as havens from cities, crime, and blacks didn't come into existence until the 1950s. Second, it seemed an unrealistic goal for a character where survival had been paramount for much of her adult life. Then there was the romance. Divorcing couple disover they still love each other, and to top it off there's an epilogue filled with baby love. Everyday I move farther and farther from category romances. They read like the McDonald's of their genre: processed, non-nutritional bites of homogenized sameness. But, then again, don't take my word for it - other romance readers loved it.

    Rendezvous to Remember is an interesting book about two romances. First the diary of a WWII romance that turned into a sixty-year marriage. Second the granddaughter read of the first love and took another look at her love. The story was romantic with a historical aspect and one I am glad to have read. My thanks to Geir Krotow and Goodreads First Reads Giveaway for my copy of Rendezvous to Remember.

    Heroism and tenderness I don't read romances, normally-- I usually stick to Tolkien. But I was completely pulled in by this story. The well-written characters became very real to me, and I was intrigued to see what would happen to them. The story was about the hidden heroism of everyday people; I was surprised to see elements of Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey! Very sophisticated, and quite a page-turner. Wonderful.

    I won a copy of a Rendezvous to Remember in a Goodreads giveaway. I’m sorry to say that this book wasn’t really my cup of tea. Unfortunately, I thought that the language that was used didn’t sound genuine or authentic. If the language used doesn’t match the characters in the story, I can have quite the difficult time focussing on the story itself, which sadly means I won’t really enjoy the novel.
