Brian Weller is a haunted man. It's been two years since the tragic accident that left his three-year-old son dead and his wife in an irreversible coma. A popular author of mega- selling thrillers, Brian's life has reached a crossroads: his new book is stalled, his wife's prognosis is dire, and he teeters on the brink of despair. Everything changes the morning an e- mail arrives from Boston artist Joanna Richman. Her heartfelt note brings back all the poignant memories: the night their eyes met, the fiery passion of their short- lived affair, and the agonizing moment he was forced to leave Joanna forever. Now, fifteen years later, the guilt and anger threaten to overwhelm him. Vowing to make things right, Brian arranges a book- signing tour that will take him back to Boston. He is eager to see Joanna again, but remains unsure where their reunion will lead. One thing is certain: the forces that tore their love asunder will stop at nothing to keep them apart. Filled with tender romance and taut suspense, A Note from an Old Acquaintance is an unforgettable story about fate, honor, and the power of true love.

Mr. Walker carefully develops his characters and creates twists such that the two lovers - the main protagonists - seem destined to never be able to fulfill their lifelong desire to be together. Admittedly, the first third of the book feels like the author is developing his style for the story, but then gets more comfortable with his writing as it moves along. A very enjoyable read for summer or those cold winter days.

Began this book with great enthusiasm. But somewhere half way through the book, I grew tired if the plot and then bored. Although I once enjoyed romance books, I no longer read them but still remember the good ones. I doubt I will remember too much about this book.

It was very well written, a little bit too long in description ,to finely coming to the point. I did gave it 5 stars, because sentimentality and feelings, did powerd this book.

This book is so heart-felt. You have the loss of a child...and, pretty much, the loss of your spouse. How do you go on? How do you forget? Does true love really have the power to conquer all?

With the passing of his wife, Brian is hit head on with Joanna, whom he loved fifteen years ago. It wasn't the right time then. But is it that time now? How do you shut out part of your past {wife and child} and re-open another part of an earlier past {Joanna}?

However, Joanna has a husband, Erik, and I found myself feeling so sorry for him, but yet, with some of his inabilities {let's call it} to connect with Joanna, you almost felt sorry for her and were silently urging her to find happiness with Brian.

This book is very difficult to review. I want to tell everyone so much, but I don't want to give away too much of the book. Bill Walker will pull you into each of his characters. The character's are developed so well. The plot isn't a difficult one, but there are twists, turns and surprises that will take you an an emotional ride along with the characters.

This book will make you believe that there may be a such thing as soul mates -- that when two people are meant to be together, it will be. If you've been in love or if you haven't been in true love, this book is a wonderful evening read.


Even though this book wasn't a hot, sinful sex type book, it was enthralling and endearing. I truly loved it. It was a forbidden love story between two artists who fell in love despite one of them being in a relationship with another man.

Brian is aspiring writer when he met Joanna, an artist who teaches art and has never sold a piece. As they get to know each other they inspire each other to be the best they can be. Unfortunately, Joanna is torn between her deep love of Brian who understands her, and her rich fiance, who wants to buy her way into becoming a famous artists. One thing leads to another, and Brian an Joanna fall apart. But, nothing can stop true love...

This book was very, very intriguing as I read along Joanna and Brian's journey of love. It was an amazing read that had strong characters, and even stronger love. I could not put this down!

My favorite part was when Joanna FINALLY confronts Erick (the fiance and then husband). i mean, seriously, I know she had feelings for him, but really. If I was Brian-when they were dating, before any of them married-I would feel as if Joanna was stringing him along for sex.

The only problem with the book is that certain parts in the middle become boring, but that's about it. Not so boring I wanted to put it down, but still. A reader wants to be entertained all the way through.

This book could definitely be defined as a tear-jerker with a happy ending. It had some moments that I cried to,laughed to, and others that made me "a[...]" A true master piece!


Any lover of romance, and happy endings should be enthralled with novel as well. Pick it up, and see for yourself!

Bill Walker's novel, A Note from an Old Acquaintance, tells a story of past love and present pain filled with questions about the future. His protagonist, Brian Weller, is the sort of author who gets half the town queuing around the block for his booksignings. But an accident has left his small son dead and his wife in a coma when this novel starts. The reader is quickly and very effectively pulled into an emotional rollercoaster of love, sorrow, determination and despair that had me eager to know more. Added to this mix is Weller's overreaction to a rose in a vase, and the mystery of an email from an old acquaintance.

Joanna is a successful artist who once was in love with Weller. In the second part of this novel, the story slows down. The author unfolds Brian and Joanna's past romance from gently humorous dialog to mystery, consummation and despair. Vivid descriptions bring buildings, conversation, bedroom scenes and sculptures all to life against a convincing depiction of Boston's musical and architectural heritage.

A particularly nice touch is Joanna's Buddhism which feeds very naturally into the story, giving a sense of things happening not entirely by chance and of the importance of faithfulness to self. Relationships are well-drawn with a nice mix of light and dark in each character and a good sense for internal motivation. The ending felt slightly rushed and I found myself feeling I didn't know the characters as well as I should, Joanna fully sculpted and real but Weller still a mystery with an unfilled hole in his past. Perhaps that just proves the author did a great job of creating Weller's present in those earlier chapters. I certainly enjoyed the book, just ended with a feeling that I'd missed something somewhere.

Disclosure: I received a free ecopy of this novel from World Literary Café in exchange for my honest review.
