Product Description

From Library Journal

Jury duty is usually a fate worse than death for most people, but for Abby Barnes, the protagonist of this 1983 novel, it offers a welcome respite from her faltering relationship with her boyfriend. Add to that a hunky college professor serving with her, and you have the makings of a good beach read.

Product Description

New York Times bestselling author Barbara Delinsky understands the power of the human heart as few others and she shares that gift in this touching novel of acceptance and fulfillment, first published in 1983.

Sitting in a Vermont jury room, Abby Barnes is happy to be empaneled. The trial is a sensational headline-grabber, and the thought of being sequestered for a few weeks is appealing. The time away from a relationship that fails to excite her will give her a chance to think . . . and to make a long overdue decision.

Then she meets fellow juror Ben Wyeth, a witty and charming college professor who shows Abby just what she's been missing. But although they share grueling days of grisly testimony and long nights of passion, there is a part of Ben that he can never share with Abby, or any woman. Just as the fate of an accused man lies in the balance, so too does Abby's, as she decides whether what Ben can give is enough . . . enough to last her a lifetime.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Romantic Autumn in New England Oct. 29 2004
By Molly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It's another beautiful autumn in New England when Abby finds herself excited about being selected to serve on a jury. After being whisked off to a private inn for seclusion with the other jurors, Abby begins to learn about the new people she'll be spending three weeks with and along the way discovers a connection with a college professor and author named Ben. As the trial progresses, so does their friendship...but after three weeks will the relationship they've built last beyond the life of seclusion?

I really enjoyed Ms. Delinsky's style of writing, especially the details that she adds. I decided to give the book only four stars because I felt like it built up and built up only to wrap up quickly with an ending that wasn't written in the same style as the rest of the book. I was a bit disappointed with that but not sorry that I read the book...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good heroine, unreal hero with issues April 5 2010
By D. K. Kortz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
He ruined it for me. I dislike characters whom you have to peel like an onion to get through all the issues to the heart of the character. Good looking aside, personally I would have taken a pass at a guy like this who feels the need to play games all the times and be totally self centered and self serving. Even after peeling back the layers, you wonder whether this character could possible have a "real" happy ending. Didn't do it for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Romance Jan. 25 2014
By O. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book began with a plot that really held my attention. I truly found the first part Interesting. I was somewhat bored with the storyline in regard to the lovemaking. It became monotonous. It ended with a more interesting plot which is why I gave it as many stars as I did. I would recommend this book as the author is a favorite to many. O.Miller
