Thirty years is a long time for passion to smolder and for love to grow. Thirty years is the true test of time in this strangely intriguing story about two young lovers who allow themselves to part ways in the name of responsibility. Their friendship comes first, above private thoughts and personal desire. They believe their fate is to belong to other partners and in distant parts of the world. Although they begin their journey in a small London cafe, they follow destiny into separate lives. “The Soho Cafe was full of both character and characters.” These characters remain in their memories and not far from their actual existence. As former friends grow closer with distance, a true love story unfolds.
Lynda Young Spiro has created a unique plot and has actually invented a different form of storytelling in There is Always More to Say. I believe that the reader will relate to the personal nature of the story, written almost as a conversation between the narrator and the character she fell in love with thirty years before. Doesn’t everyone have a secret romance lurking in the shadows? Initially I was put off by the use of past perfect verb tense, but the flow of this word pattern became more realistic as the story progressed. The repetition of words and thoughts aptly imitate the roving of the human mind. I foresee Spiro’s novel will be in the hands of every female beachgoer this summer as an easy read.
