About the Book
Forty years and a lifetime later, Rosalee’s quiet, predictable life is turned upside down when she runs into George at a restaurant and discovers he’s moved to town. George wants to reconnect, and while Rosalee’s head isn’t so sure that’s a good idea, her heart is saying something different.
It’s a story about first love and second chances, family, friendship, and living life to the fullest.
In My Opinion
You Again by Amanda Waters is a late-in-life, second time around romance that is uplifting and filled with warmth and hope.
Rosalee is lonely. Sure, she spends time with her family (children and grandchildren), but when she goes home it’s just her and the dog. When opportunities arise for Rosalee to shake up her routine, she grabs hold of them—renewing old and forming new friendships, planning events with her neighbors and more. But when the man who broke her heart when she was a teenager enters her life, will she take that opportunity as well?
Waters separates the teenage Rosalee with the elder version of her by changing the points of view. Rosalee as a young woman is told in first person while modern-day Rosalee is told in third person. This was a great way to separate the two timelines throughout the book.
This book is a nice reminder that just because one season of life ends, it doesn’t mean we have to stop doing the things we love or experiencing new things. A satisfied life is a fulfilled life.
