Publisher's Summary

While Nettie is shopping at the market, her cart collides with another cart pushed by a nice-looking man. A week goes by, and she runs into the same man at the post office. They get acquainted and learn their deceased spouses are buried in the same cemetery. They also learn from each other that their children want them to sell their houses and move in with them.
Love starts to take hold. They don’t want to move in with their children and give up their independence. Their love for each other grows deeper. They decide to marry. The next step is telling their children, who have already mapped out the rest of their lives.


Audible Editor Reviews

This old-fashioned romance by E. Jean Beres begins with a meet-cute in a grocery store between two senior citizens, Nettie and Hugh. As they become better acquainted, they begin to realize that they share some extraordinary circumstances, including startling coincidences regarding their late spouses and their adult children. Aaron Tucker handles the expository prose (and the role of Hugh) with a warm baritone, while Gale Van Cott imbues Nettie with a pervasive sweetness; both actors bring a remarkable tenderness to Nettie and Hugh's relationship. Dream House is a sweet yarn of late-blossoming love.

Dream House

Light, interesting story of widow and widower in their 60's who meet in supermarket. The main thing that bothered me was the voice of the woman, which would have appropriate for a woman in her 80's or 90's, not early 60's.

Not what I was looking for.

Not a badly written story but definitely not what I was looking for. While the relational context between the two primary characters might qualify as 'romance' the plot and story line is more related to demographic and sociological exploration of generational implications and mores. .
