The Old Ro­man­tics

Toronto Life - - The Conversation -

Linda Sparks’ mem­oir about find­ing true love in a re­tire­ment home at age 87 sent read­ers grasp­ing for the clos­est Kleenex box. “Beau­ti­ful story!” “How in­cred­i­bly sweet!!!” “So happy you found each other,” and more of the like:

“What a won­der­ful read ‘The Honey­moon­ers’ is. My heart is warm.”

—Laura Parkins Kell, Toronto

“Goose­bumps through­out. More sto­ries like this please!”

—Nancy Fazz­ini, toron­to­

Last but not least, a tweet from the au­thor’s grand­daugh­ter:

“My grandma wrote an ar­ti­cle about find­ing love at 87, and I’m just here eat­ing Oreos in my PJs.”

—@dog­tormeg, Twit­ter
