Romantic and sexual love isn't entirely the prerogative of the young. It can strike at any time, any age, often in unexpected places; and it can cause as big a furore between families as it did between the Capulets and Montagues. Julie Roseman is 60, Jewish, divorced; Romeo Cacciamani is the same age, Catholic, widowed. The families own rival flower shops in Boston (Massachusetts) but the feud between them stretches far beyond simple business competition. No-one can remember how it started or why it is so bitter, but when Julie's daughter Sandy and Romeo's son Tony meet at school and fall in love they're torn ruthlessly apart. Then Julie and Romeo meet at a seminar for failing business-people and another bolt of lightning strikes. Both are horrified. Though the original reason for the hatred between them may have disappeared into the mists of time, the break-up of Sandy and Tony has set it in stone. Star-crossed they might be, but Julie and Romeo cannot give each other up. With balconies in short supply they find other ways of meeting more in tune with the new century; but when their shocked families discover their liaison their reactions are ferocious, physically and commercially. Light-hearted, witty and shrewd, Ray has written a love story to warm everyone's hearts, of any age. The style is assured - the story ripples like a sparkling stream. One wonders why Ray has not been seen in print before. (Kirkus UK)
Based on that most timeless of love stories, Julie and Romeo is wonderfully humorous novel of love, family feuds and disapproving parents - with a twist 'For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo' Shakespeare might have seen his young star-cross'd lovers as a tragic pair, but 400 years later Jeanne Ray's Julie and Romeo are light-hearted, funny and sixty-something. Julie Roseman, a divorcee, and Romeo Cacciamani, a widower, own rival flower shops in Boston. They don't know what started the family feud generations before, but they have never questioned it. Until the fateful day when they meet at a business conference and inexplicably find themselves falling in love. But the path of true love never did run smooth, and with Romeo's feisty mother and a pack of fierce children coming between them, it looks like Julie and Romeo's tale will not end happily - or will it?
