The Last Romantics by Tara Conklin

I purchased this book from Amazon to read. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 The Last Romantics by Tara Conklin. I must say thank you to a local Bookclub for making this book the choice for this month, it isn’t one I would have picked up on my own. 102 year old Fiona is making her appearance at a conference the first in 20 years. An appearance with before and after questions and oh so many questions. When she begins the answer to the infamous question that everyone asks but she never answers. Her answer must include every detail of the life and love of her siblings and the moments of tragedy and love with each one of them. Fiona is the youngest of 4 her sister Renee, Caroline, and her brother Joe. Fiona deals with life in words. Lists, poems, love, tragedy, all wrapped up in words. Her pivotal points in life are determined by the words she uses to describe that moments. Holding onto those words is her coping mechanism, especially when she describes the people around her. I kept waiting for the accident referenced in the first parts of the book so when the reveal came I wasn’t shocked.
