Survived by Her Longtime CompanionHs the two women hide their painful memories and strain to be civil to one another Eleanor startles them by insisting that they take turns reading aloud from Eleanor’s diaries of her life with Daphne DeMonet Only after the diaries are read in her presence will Eleanor proceed with a full inter. To be honest I struggled a bit with this book I wanted to love it I was excited to read it but it never really clicked for me I was waiting to feel just totally immersed in the two love stories but it never really happened I think part of the problem was the fact it had two love stories going at once While I have enjoyed stories with groups of women and different relationships going on For whatever reason maybe because one relationship was in the past and one present I felt like I never really got into the characters and their love stories While I did feel of a connection with Daphne and Eleanor's story Bailey and Chelsea's relationship was like an afterthought And I found having to force myself not to skip over their parts The overall writing was good and the book affected me enough to ball my eyes out in the end I just wished I had connected a bit I have read all these wonderful reviews from my Goodreads friends and I can't help but think why didn't I like it Maybe I'm not the romantic I thought I was But I guess it just proves to me how some people just identify to some stories than othersI would still recommend this to romance fans I did like it just not love it and chances are you may like it better than I did

I remember reading the description of Survived by her Longtime Companion by Chris Paynter when it came out and thinking it sounded too sombre for the kind of story I was in the mood for but ever since I’ve kept hearing how much people have loved this novel So when it came up as the book of the month on the Facebook lesficReader group I thought I would take a look at it and I’m extremely glad that I did The rekindling of the relationship between the younger protagonists although harrowing at times is told with warmth great observation and some lovely humour I found this an emotionally gripping novel and the story between Bailey and Chelsea starting as they split up made an interesting and tender romance There are also many nice touches that flesh out Bailey and Chelsea’s relationship including habits of a long term relationship that made me cringe because I recognised them “fine” being an answer that means nothing of the sort – the other four letter f word as Eleanor saysBut it is Eleanor the older British character and her great life long romance with Daphne that completely stole the show for me Eleanor's attractive witty classy flirtatious with an amusing lack of patience and a friendly but sharp edge to her This wasn’t something I’d pictured from the blurb but it was a real draw for me I also found Eleanor’s first person narrative through her diaries convincingly British different from the very American telling of Chelsea and Bailey’s story Eleanor uses the occasional American term as she would living in the States for so long but the feel of her story was very British for me Her story – an almost lifelong romance with film star Daphne – is completely absorbing It spans glamorous 50s Hollywood to poignant heart breaking moments of an ailing film star and old woman I felt the same way as Bailey and Chelsea at the end – knowing Daphne was dead but wishing the story would re write itself to make it not so – this was very effective writing
