Product Description

Product Description

New York Times bestselling author Barbara Delinsky delights with a compelling story of chance, fate, and perfect timing, first published in 1998.

Russ Ettinger doesn't know why the delicate young woman he found gasping for breath at the side of the road disappeared so abruptly—or even what her name is. What he does know is he must find her again somehow. There has to be a deeper purpose behind his Samaritan act, because never has anyone so powerfully and immediately filled him with such an overwhelming desire to cherish and protect.

But Dana Madison is tired of being protected. What she wants is to be respected and loved as the strong, vital, independent woman she has worked so hard to become. And so she flees from a chance first meeting with a considerate stranger, a man who could possibly play a very important role in her future ... and maybe find a permanent place in her heart.

About the Author

Barbara Delinsky, a lifelong New Englander, was a sociologist and photographer before she began to write. There are more than 30 million copies of her books in print.

2.0 out of 5 stars A non-breathtaking story read by a great actress. June 22 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
This is a review of BOOK ON CASSETTE. The story itself is nothing special. It isn't clear why Dana is so afraid to let her new lover in on her terrible secret --...she has asthma. Everything else comes down to a "nice" story, perhaps worth listening to on your way to work in the morning. The acting of the performer, J. Smith-Cameron is what livens up this story. She reads sensuously, beautifully, perfectly matching the voices of each of the characters, making a clear distinction between them. It's a pleasure to listen to.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not much of a story Sept. 30 1999
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I got hooked on Barbara Delinsky books after reading "Coast Road" and "Three Wishes". I loved both of them. So I decided to go back and read some of her older ones. This one was very weak. She seemed more interested in telling the story of a runner rather than the relationship between two characters. I suggest passing on this one and reading one of the other two I mentioned which were excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sizzling June 23 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am SO surprised to see the low reviews on this one. I am a big Barbara D. fan and have read a lot of her titles--this is one of my favorites. So the plot is not spectacular--big deal! To hell with plot--this book is about the characters. The "love scene" is sooooooooooooo sexy and emotional. The kind of soul-touching romance that makes me cry it's so beautiful. So call me hopeless...

2.0 out of 5 stars A Disappointing Delinsky April 24 2005
By Karlee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read Barbara Delinsky's books as my "light" reading. I read them to relax, to be taken adrift - away - to unwind. I finished Moment to Moment because I thought, with every turn of a page, that a story would develop, that the "plot" would evolve, that it would be worthy of status along with other more recent works that I've read. As I neared the end of the book, i could not believe how trite it was. However, it did take only a few hours to read. I felt totally disengaged from the characters in the novel. I saw them as very unidimensional. One struggled with asthma. In actuality, the author took almost no time whatsoever to delve into the reality of living with this disorder. Nor did Delinsky delve much into anything. The book was pure formula. Perhaps that is why it was originally published under the name of Bonnie Drake? Was it only after other books became hits that this book was "revived?" I finished this book, with its totally predictable ending, because I could not believe what I was reading. Pass on this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite book by Delinsky Dec 29 2004

MOMENT TO MOMENT by Barbara Delinsky

December 29, 2004

MOMENT TO MOMENT, I have to say, was not one of my favorite Delinsky books. I've enjoyed most of her books that I've read so far, but I am finding I do not enjoy her straight romances that she wrote prior to some of her more recent books, which tend to be more "women's lit" than just a pure romance. I think I was spoiled, having discovered the author's books by starting with her more recent novels and working my way backward. Knowing that, the quality of these earlier books is not as good as her more recent novels. Although it is a good thing to know she is improving with age, even without comparing the different types of novels that Delinsky has written, I wouldn't have become such a big fan if it had only to do with these earlier romances.

In MOMENT TO MOMENT, a young woman, Dana Madison battles asthma and the right to have a normal healthy adult life, while Russ Ettinger deals with the loss of a possible sports career when he injures his knee. The two meet by accident, while Dana is fighting an asthma attack. Fate seems to pull the two together, and soon they embark on a relationship. Dana's asthma is at the heart of her personality, but she refrains to tell Russ about her health problems. However, because of this medical issue, their relationship becomes strained. It's a matter of misunderstandings and withholding the truth, but Dana is very afraid of having any serious relationship with any man, even if it IS with Russ, whom she thinks she can trust.

I wish I could give this book a higher rating, but MOMENT TO MOMENT is definitely not one of my favorite Delinsky books. I have to admit it was well written in some ways, but I didn't feel any sympathy for the characters and couldn't care less what happened to them. Anyone that reads this book should know that MOMENT TO MOMENT is not indicative of the style of books Delinsky writes today. On the other hand, many readers have told me that they would rather read her older novels than her more recent ones. It's a matter of taste. As for me, I will eventually read all her books, as I am a big fan, but I prefer her current style of writing and am happy that I had discovered her books. MOMENT TO MOMENT gets three stars from the Ratmammy.

4.0 out of 5 stars I learned alot about asthma from it. Aug. 23 2004
By janlouise - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I never realized how some people have to live with severe asthma, it was an eye-opener for me. Great, sweet story- one that I sincerely enjoyed. Guess I was in the mood for a simple love story because I enjoyed this one. After years of struggling and fighting with her family for control, Dana Mason is living on her own and working at the local library- she is doing something she has been told all her life that wasn't possible- living her own life. Since a little girl, Dana has been sheltered by her family unable to live a complete life. Finally she realized she was going to have to get control of her own life or she would have no life. So she moved into an apartment of her own, found a job, and learned to cope with her health one day at a time. Little by little she started exercising and running only to learn that it helped her handle stress and her asthma. But there were times that would set her back, like going to family gatherings and getting uptight. That's what happened the night she was running and had to stop unable to get her breath. And that's when Russ Ettinger (with his own health / life problems to deal with) run up on her only to realize that she was in trouble and couldn't breath. Have your ever met someone that in just a short time captured your attention / heart? Well, that's what happened to Russ with Dana. Dana ended up running on before Russ to return to help her and from then on Russ was like the "prince with the glass slipper looking for cinderella" - only Russ didn't have a slipper or tennis shoe. It really is a sweet story and one to enjoy.

1.0 out of 5 stars waste of time.... Aug. 19 2009
By Adva Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm very disappointed. After enjoying Delinsky's books so far, this one was a complete bore. No plot, no climax. I skipped paragraphs. I finished reading just for the sake of finishing. I regret not reading the reviews here before getting this book.
