    1. I will now give this book a one person standing ovation. :applauding T.D. and Terry:As Holland quoted: A joyous journey. This story is exactly that in my opinion. Take the journey from the moment Ruby stepped over the landing into Holland's home sopping wet, to Ruby bringing Holland out of his shell as a recluse to their bond although delicate at first from the travesty that Holland had to endure during his acting career, to ending in a bonded strength that no man or woman can tear asunder. This [...]



    2. This is the classical high emotional story, maybe not much realistic, but for sure romantic. Holland is a former baby actor who spent all his childhood and youth in front of a camera. He had not a normal life, and he believed his image was the only thing that counted. Holland was also gay, and he knew that, but gay was not something that matched good with his clean-face image and so he repressed his feelings. Out of his teenager years he had finally the courage to play the role of a gay kid stru [...]


    3. The title and cover attracted me, the blurb appealled and I added it to my wishlist. It took me a while to buy it because it wasn't available at my usual outlets. It was more than worth the wait.The sea glass didn't feature as much as I'd hoped, but I really enjoyed the story. The characters were engaging.Hol's slow reaching for life after shutting himself away for so many years was very moving. Ruby had occasional moments of being too good to be true, but he had just enough internal worries to [...]


    4. Wow what can I say about this book. I loved it for one thing. I loved Holland and Ruby from the very first page. Holland needed Ruby. Holland and Ruby were so sweet and perfect for each other. I stayed up until past 3 a.m. finishing this book knowing I had to get up at 7 a.m. I was sorry the book ended, I wanted it to keep going on but at the same time I wanted to find out how it ended. That always happens to me when I read a great book. If you haven't read "Solitude &Sea Glass read it today [...]


    5. I liked the book enough to finish and I think that it could appeal to a lot of people. I liked the premise of a beast who didn't know that he was a beauty. I liked that he questioned Ruby's love once he discovered that his face was not what he expected. But the book was so slow moving. And the endearments drove me nuts; "My ruby most rare" Geesh!



    6. Please don't shoot me when I say that, for me, this story was way too "girly"! If I was a big fan of poetry, this book would have landed in my TOP 10 books unfortunately, I am more of a "shoot em' up, bang, bang" kinda gal! Now, with that having been said this WAS a wonderful story of self-discovery and finding "true love" that was beautifully written! Even though this isn't something that I would want to read on a daily basis, it was certainly well worth my time to spend a few hours with Ruby a [...]


    7. I really liked Holland a lot. I felt sorry for him that he felt that his worth as a person was so tied up in how he looked, or maybe that was just how he was trained from such an early age. Ruby was so good for him and I'm sorry that things went so wrong or rather that circumstances moved so quickly. It was sad that they had to part without a chance to really work things through. But good things worked out and together they can make a difference. I enjoyed very much and recommend to others.


    8. The best book I've read by these authors, it really pulled me in and made me want to read more by them. Though I thought Ruby's travails and return at the end could have been done better, more realistically.




    9. Maine, "The Way Life Sould Be!" This is a wonderful book, I would recommend this to anyone who wants to escape into another world of inner beauty!


    10. A little on the overdramatic/mushy side for my tastes, but enjoyable nonetheless (in that perfectly-happily-ever-after-with-hugs-and-kisses kind of way).
