Helen Simonson's Major Pettigrew is a fresh voice in literature today -- an ordinary man, living an ordinary life, with sadness and sensitivity, but with neither a trace of machismo or over-sentimentality.

I enjoyed this one. I didn't love it as much as I loved my favorite Nicholas Sparks book ("Safe Haven"), but it was good. It's about a powerful first love, a reunion, nostalgia/memories, and who people go on to be. I didn't like that I was able to figure out the ending with about 60 pages to go but I'd recommend "The Best of Me" nonetheless.
