****.

It is a light story, very pleasant to read, especially, the main charater of Henry felt quite natural & this story greatly caught my interest. Worthy of attention story.

A great book! The play-by-play detail of golf games set in high society are exceptional. The love story line told from an avid golfer is a seldem seen insight into men's thoughts about love. Great book for a quick read on a rainy afternoon. It is light and humorous and can be recommended to any age group interested in a playful golf love story. Cute, simple, "G" rated.
