I Guess She Didn’t go to London
The attractive and very diverse young cast is a plus. At first, since the story started in the 80’s when the H/h were only 8 or 10 years old or so, I was afraid this was going to be another one of these Hallmances where they would end up in their late 30s and still be romantically unfulfilled and still struggling with their careers, acting like teenagers or in their 20’s instead of mature adults established and successful in their careers. Thank goodness most of the action concludes when they are still in their very early 30’s or late 20’s, with the epilogue in the present day. The main problem I had with the story was the unlikely development of the heroine giving up her exciting almost fairy-tale-like dream career as a photographer who travels all over the world in order to settle in a small town with her guy who runs a garden center. I mean she kisses away a presumably very well-paid editor job in London? Big Lifestyle change, there. Huge. That decision needed to be dealt with upfront and seriously instead of happening off-screen.
