This review is from: Apart From Love (Kindle Edition)
"Say anything, apart from love." That's the mantra of this book, the heart of it. I'm not commonly a romance reader, but I am a literary reader, and Uvi Poznansky's deft prose and fresh eye showed me corners of the human soul that few novels convey.

A passionate tale told by two people: Ben, a twenty-seven year old student, and Anita, spunky, uneducated, the new wife of , Ben's aging father.

The two, Ben and Anita, feel a dangerous attraction to one another, and the story is off... taking you with it, into secret realms of desire.

Other secrets are soon revealed, about Lenny, Ben's father, and Ben's mother, stricken with early-onset Alzheimer's.

And there is a tape recorder... I won't tell you the part it plays in this journey from grief and guilt to forgiveness and love.

Uvi Poznansky is a thoughtful, talented writer. Her work brims with nuance. This is not a frivolous book, but it is a romance with real life, and a fine one.
