My Rating: 4
Jesse Sienna doesn’t believe that love can last. His parents’ marriage was caring but passionless, and his own romantic history tells him that love can burn bright, but that it cannot burn for long. So when his elderly father, Mickey, moves in with him and seems unable to understand Jesse’s no-strings-attached relationship with Marina, his current girlfriend, Jesse barely pays attention. It’s just another example of how different they are – and more evidence that he and his father will never connect on any meaningful level.But the truth is, Mickey Sienna knows more about love than most people learn in a lifetime. More than half a century ago, he discovered the endless rewards of investing your heart and soul in someone…and he knows the devastating costs of letting the perfect someone slip by.
When Mickey sees Jesse taking an extraordinary woman for granted, he decides it’s time to tell Jesse his story – a story he’s never shared with any of his children before. It is a story that will change both of them profoundly.
At once a stirring family drama and a touching romance, The Forever Year is filled with richly drawn characters and powerful situations. You will respond personally to the people you meet in this novel, and you will find yourself deeply enmeshed in their stories. And you might find yourself looking at love in a new way.

A caveat..When I frist started reading and reviewing 3+ years ago, Mr. Aronica had contacted me to read an author under his imprint, The Story Plant. Since that day, I have been a big fan, and am now a member of The Story Plant’s Spread The Word Initiative. Also, over the past 3+ years, every book from other authors that I have read at the request of The Story Plant has gone on my “authors to read” list. So I was surprised to receive The Forever Year by Lou Aronica, the author. It was previously published under a pseudo pen name and is being republished on January 8, 2013 from Fiction Studio Books.
This blog was founded on the premise to write honest reviews, to the

I received a copy of this book, at no charge to me,
in exchange for my honest review.
