Booklist Review

Heitzmann's Twilight brings two old lovers together in their hometown, little Montrose, Missouri. Cal Morrison, a nice fellow with small horizons, never left, settling on the job of fireman; Laurie Sutton, on the other hand, couldn't wait to leave and married a senator's son who was trying to become a big-league ballplayer. Now, she's back, divorced, and with two kids in tow; the question is whether she's ready to settle down. The answer isn't long in coming, though both Cal and Laurie ring true as small-town types with their careful, rather sad lives. John Mort Copyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
