David's Song Taken from the book cover: Annie only ever really loved two men in her life. One broke her heart, the other married her. Four children and fifteen years later, Annie’s marriage is in jeopardy. Money is tight and her husband questions the very foundation of their relationship. When Annie is unexpectedly given the opportunity to see the young man who broke her heart — a man who is now a megastar in the music industry — Annie is faced with choices. Choices that will determine what is of more value — a second chance at lost love and unfulfilled dreams or commitment, trust, and love built on years of experience. A psychologically subtle, yet compelling tale about how the instinct and need for love overcomes self-doubt and personal inadequacy.
David's Song is a story that reels you in and stays with you long after you've finished. It was a well-written novel that made me laugh and cry. I have to admit I struggled with parts of the book, especially that in my eyes her children didn't factor much into Annie's decisions.
I highly recommend you read David's Song and let me know what you think.
I swallowed hard, trying to keep my composure. I was a mix of relief and surprise and elation. I tried smiling without looking too thrilled. This was not a declaration of love, but it was as close as I would ever get.
“It’s my pleasure,” I replied, feeling flushed.
“I should get you home,” he said and slowly pulled his hand away. “It’s late, even if we don’t have to dance in the morning.”
When we finally stepped outside again I looked to the sky. The lights from the neon signs had dimmed the stars, but I couldn’t help thinking that those same stars were on my side. I watched David as he zipped his jacket, and when he started to walk I fell in step beside him. He reached down and took my hand again. I looked to make sure that really was my hand in his.
“Next time I want to go to a concert, I’m calling you,” he told me as we waited for the light to cross the street. “Then we can go out again and really share the music.” He was nodding to himself as if he thought it a brilliant idea. He wouldn’t have to convince me.
“I’d like that,” I replied. We walked along quietly, hand in hand until we reached Glenwood Apartments. An orange glow rested over the parking lot from the street lights, and each building was highlighted by a brighter yellow light coming from the glass entryway at the doors.
“That’s my building over there.” I pointed to the third building in line. “Thanks for walking me home.” I reluctantly pulled my hand away as we approached the entrance.
“I always take my date home. It’s rude to make them walk home alone,” he said with a smile.
“Date?” I repeated.
“Well, we did go to a concert together. Isn’t that a date?”
I laughed. “We didn’t exactly go together.”
“Close enough,” he said. He took a step closer and looked down at me, his blue eyes looking almost black in the light. “You’re not like the other girls, Annie.” He was quiet and more sober than before.
“Is that a good thing or not?” I asked, feeling a little dizzy being so close to him.
“No, not like them at all,” he repeated.
