The Class of ’59 by John A. Heldt is a great romance book, the perfect company for a rainy Sunday afternoon. It combines love story and time traveling with details of ’59 and just a little bit of suspense, crime, and danger.
The book is easy to read and made me curious from the start. When I read about the death of Mary Beth’s boyfriend in the first pages of the book, I didn’t imagine that it will be some time traveling involved.
The characters were so simple, no drama, just enjoying life. I almost envied them. All the problems were so easily solved. So it made me think of a fairytale. A ’59 fairytale.
The descriptions parts, nice and simple, gave me the impression of watching a movie. But still, I would have loved more of the ’59, something that I can not find on google.
I also liked the unpredictable.I had no idea of what would happen next and how it would end. Every time I thought the book was leading me somewhere, another event changed the direction. I really enjoyed the simple optimistic end. It is not the type of book that makes me think but the type of book that makes me smile.
