    1 thought on “The Middle Ages

    1. Nice easy read for the summer with a character I could relate to. I enjoyed rooting for the main character throughout an easy paced story. But then I felt like the author suddenly decided to wrap it up quickly and I was left feeling like I was missing something in the end. Still enjoyed it.

    2. I'm almost done with this book (have maybe 10 pages to go). My only gripe with it is the situation with Jane's employment. She's living on her severance? What, they don't have unemployment compensation in New York State? Why do characters in books never collect UC? And she has the luxury to consider not taking another job with another architectural firm? What about health insurance? Does her ex-husband's policy cover her and their twin daughters, too? Sounds like he is self-employed as much as s [...]

    3. My way to judge a book? How much do I care about the characters--and in this case, I loved Jane and wanted things to go really well for her. There was a side story about Aunt Aggie and Uncle Barney------who had a wonderful marriage--one that makes me think of us. And "maybe it was because he had such a strong tie to her that he might be able to let go of her sooner than the rest of us"------Brent and I are considering this thought. And I hope that her future includes Jack, and the other precious [...]

    4. A story of rekindled love after a 30 year hiatus. An architect divorcee, Jane Larsen, mother of two teen girls is feeling under-appreciated and restless. Out of curiosity, she Googles an old college boyfriend and they begin a long-distance email relationship. Meanwhile, Jane is confronted with different career options after 18 years at the same job. With everything changing, Jane is weary yet eager to forge ahead and finally live again. A bit predictable and the male character is a little overly [...]

    5. I would've given this book five stars, because I truly enjoyed it, but it ended poorly. For the entire novel we have a slow progress, really getting to know Jane, but suddenly, at the end of the novel, we get a hurried wrap-up in a few pages. Supposedly it's to let us know that everything turns out ok, but all we have is the main character chatting about how it's tough work but everyone is doing great, and then the book is over. Not a great way to end what was a great story.

    6. Jane Larson's life is just going along as she works as an architect for eighteen years for the same company, and raises her twin teenage daughters in New York City. She if fired from her job at the same time she renews her friendship with her college love, Jack. She now must decide which way her life will go. Good book.

    7. I'm there - middle age. I could relate on so many levels - the insecurities that come with living in an older body; the unexpected intense joy at finding new love when I'd figured I was way beyond hope; and the doubts that come with wondering if a new relationship is even worth it.Easy reading, pleasant telling, and likeable characters.I'll definitely read more by her.

    8. Passing this book on to my mom as I thought it was a nice way to escape for a time. A middle aged (when did 40 become middle aged?) is rethinking love, career, and what it means to move to another stage in life. Actually really liked this - a nice simple story but didn't treat me like I was an airhead. Interested in seeing what else I have missed from Ms. Fields.

    9. well, on the upside i skipped a whole bunch of pages in the middle, something i rarely do, and i don't think it made a difference. kudos to the author for a likable protagonist. although i'm not keen on all the cliches of middle age .

    10. This novel was very good. A divorced, middle-aged architect contacts her old college love via email. Their love grows.

    11. This was such a wonderful story. There was absolutely nothing I didn't like about it. I am 20 years younger than Jane but in some way, I can relate to her.

    12. I'm not quite in the middle years myself, but this book did speak to me. I loved her first book and was glad to run across this one. A nice Sunday read.

    13. This was a fine story- I didn't relate to it much so it was slightly hard to get into. I liked the ending but overall the story dragged.
