“The Younger Man” by Dermot Davis is a really intelligent romance novel that will appeal to readers of many ages and tastes. At almost 40 years old, main character Frances has had two failed marriages and has given up on men. When she meets a younger man, she gives it a try.
The book is a romance / chick-lit novel by boxed in genre, but I found it to be so much more than that. I loved the first person point of view of Frances. She had a lot of interesting thoughts that really made me think about things in a different light. This gives real substance to the book and makes it so much more than “just another romance” novel. I loved the intelligence in the novel and was eager to go along for the ride. I look forward to reading more from this author!
