Falling in October is a unique perspective on"second time around" romance, based on the author’s own experience after a difficult divorce. The premise is a woman in the autumn of life candidly sharing about her reinvention and new assessment of love--but with a twist. It is written directly to the man she hopes to meet, which makes this book truly different from other "mid-life love" subject matter. The vulnerable, journal-type tone creates an intimate reflection of lessons learned and a woman's dreams for the future. This book spans both romantic fiction and non-fiction genres. The first-person format will fascinate idealistic, love story enthusiasts while enlightening baby boomers who are struggling with expressing their romantic identity and mid-life passion. Falling in October is tastefully targeted to a wide adult market by avoiding sexually overt language and focusing instead on intimacy within a purely romantic vein. Female readers will identify with the feminine, incurable romantic and admire the intelligent woman who clearly knows what she wants. Men who would not normally be interested in a romantic book will be intrigued by Falling in October because it is specifically addressed to a man and gives ever-needed insights on how women think.
"I will likely continue to over-explain that I'm not delusional about romance. I prefer to think of myself as passionately fine-tuned--partly from a lifetime of learning what love isn't." --Gina Gates, Falling in October
