THE GOLDEN HOUR
Rating: 3 Cups
Sarah enrolls in her first college photography class. After the death of her parents, she is unable to find anything to keep her interested until she sees the sexy man while attending her first day of class.
Malek is a man caught between duty, family honor, and his love for Sarah. In the end he picks duty and leaves Sarah behind for a life back home in Egypt.
During their last meeting at a local restaurant, they agree that in 20 years they will return there at the same time on the same day. In the meantime Sarah walks away without telling Malek her vital secret, and she wonders if he will show and where his life will have taken him.
It was difficult in the beginning of the story to understand that Sarah is reminiscing about their life together and speculating on how Malek’s life has evolved. Once I caught on to the format, I enjoyed how Sarah’s mind works. Eliza Crowe made it easy for readers to place themselves in Sarah’s place. It is human nature to wish bad and then good on previous lovers. The ending was very funny and a perfect way to end the story.
