Set in small town Georgia in the 1960's, This Fine Life is rich with details of that era.  For me, it was a trip down "Memory Lane."  I loved how the author wove so many aspects of the '60s into the story, giving me the feeling that I was actually living in that time and place.  There are many references to the music of the era, as well as dress, decor and daily life.  The story could have taken place in another location and time, but the setting and time chosen by the author gives a refreshing perspective.

The characters are well developed, and the depth of their emotions and struggles comes across clearly. 
This is a story of young love, happiness, disappointments and failures, longings and perseverance in spite of opposition.

What is a truly fine life?  The main characters, Mariette and Thayne, discover that the answer to that question is not as it seems at first.  This is a story that will have you laughing at times, and at other times crying and agnonizing right along with them, as they make choices that will change their lives forever. 

Eva Marie Everson is a successful speaker, a popular radio personality, and the award-winning author of Things Left Unspoken.  She is co-auther of the Potluck Club series and the Potluck Catering Club series.  She lives in Florida.
