“In my youth I was a dreamer…imagination my best friend. My mind could safely take me places and bring me back again. Now all those places of my youth have become sweet memories. I hold them close within my heart and cherish each one tenderly.”

“Rose Flynn never knew how to ask questions. She accepted, moved on, lived the life that lay in front of her. Yes, Rose survived and existed–until the passage of time allowed her to dive into the Facebook ocean to find a once-beloved friend. Once she found him, she ended up swimming hard against the tide of her emotions. As I read, I floated above the pages of her memories, entered the New World of the computer age and then ended up looking over her shoulder at the kind of love that only comes along once in a lifetime. This is the kind of romance that readers like myself will not be able to put down. It’s written for those of us who remember a time long before the reality of home computers, the Internet and the comparative privacy of cell phones. It’s written for those of us who have also entered this new age with buried feelings and know that it takes a certain courage to use technology to bring them up again. I invite others to travel with Rose, like I did, into two new frontiers: technology and heart memory.”  - posted December 27, 2010, Amazon.com

“Sometimes, if you are fortunate enough, a book will tap into your own  stream of memories and touch the soul of your past. This is such a book.   C.L. Gillmore’s story  reminds us of our coming of age in the 60′s  & 70′s, by use of her heartfelt poetry and determined narration.   She offers us a bridge, an extension, from those unique days to our  current ones powered by cyberspace.  It is a compelling  tale of hope,  faith, and friendship that remains forever.  I would like to see a movie  made of this book. It would be a magnet at the box office. Audiences  need a hopeful love story right now. ” – posted January 27, 2011, Amazon.com
