Blurb:It’s 1950 and young couple, Annie May and Lewis have just left high school. A night on the beach will change their lives forever.. can they handle the consequences? Annie May is a prim young lady who now has to deal with her fall from grace and finds not everything in the world is easy especially, without money. Lewis has always been one of the guys but now it’s time for him to grow up and be a man. However, whilst under the pressure to provide for Annie May he makes a choice that could end his whole relationship. Meanwhile, their gang of friends seem to be moving on with their lives and the young couple feel trapped… can they pull through?
A romantic drama about action and consequences
Annie May and Lewis meet, fall in love and on the date of their anniversary have a loving meeting on the beach. Celebrating their first anniversary, they do it in style with wine, Twinkies and dance. Under the starry night they make love for the first time and so begins their journey into adulthood.
A love story, as most finds two people in the grips of despair wondering what to do with themselves and the rest of their lives when romance blossoms to take them into a different and unforeseen direction than they had planned. Disowned by their families, their friends gather around them, providing support no matter what.
This is both a story of young love as well as strength and friendship rallying around in spite of events taking place destined to change and form the relationships within their tight knitted group for time they are together. What happens later is another story all together. This is when we learn this story is only the beginning of the journey.
Well written, although I would have loved to see more about each of the characters in the group as they one by one showed their true colours. I was a little disappointed in the abrupt ending, though am looking forward to the next book.
I highly recommend it Carefree and Consequences if you like soft mushy love stories.
