  • I called attention to a book by an American author had written words like favourite, colour, savour, honour etc with ou vowels, these words have ever seen with a single vowel o in american english.

My opinion

I think it was a very emotional book, is a novel that inspires you to want to read it to know what happens to the end. It’s a highly entertaining read. I did not know what had movie and saw to compare and prefer the book because described the story in detail. Also the order in which the story is told is very different in the book begin by the end of the movie , so things have and different order. I like so much and recommend it for those who like the romance novel with some reality .

She was pretty, he remembered thinking, and when he finally joined them, she looked his way with a pair of hazy eyes. “Hi,” she’d said simply as she offered her hand. “Finley’s told me a lot about you.”An ordinary beginning, something that would have been forgotten had it been anyone but her. But as he shook her hand and met those striking emerald eyes, he knew before he’d taken his next breath that she was the one he could spend the rest of his life, looking for but never find again. She seemed that good, that perfect. From there, it went like a tornado wind. Fin told him she was spending the summer in New Bern with her family, because her father worked for a tobacco firm, and though he only nodded, the way she was looking at him made his silence seem okay. Fin laughed then, because he knew what was happening, and they stayed at the festival until the crowds were thin and everything closed up for the night. They met the following day, and the day after that, and they soon became inseparable.
