The love story of the couple, Addie Moore and Louis Waters happened at Holt, Colorado.

This love novel begin with Addie Moore goes to visit one of her neighbor, Louis Waters, who lives just a few block away from her home.

Louis Waters, as did his wife-passed away for years. He grew up in this town, Holt, he went away for studying and working, and came back 46 years ago.

So, now they live in the same town and their houses are very near each other only a block apart.

The high-light question sentence that Addie makes to Louis is:

“I wonder if you consider coming to my house sometimes to sleep with me?”

Louis is stunned by such as Addie’s state shooting. However, he replies:
“What?” “How do you mean?”…

The time fly, their relationship has been developing and speeding up though out the town. One day, Addie has brought her closed neighbor, Ruth, to go for shopping.


What do they do when taken some snark about Addie’s love affair from the grocery clerk?

Ruth knows very well on how to protect her friend in that ashamed and hard situation and on the other hand how to deal with the cashier not jumping into their business.

Gene, Addie’s son, after learning what happening about connection of his mother and Louis. Now resents Louis and suspects him wanting to take her money without true love...

Then he takes his son, Jamie, back to live with him and his wife after Jamie, 6-year-old, comes to stay with his grandmother for the summer time. Jamie will be not allowed by Gene seeing each other grand mom unless Addie quits with Louis.
