What is the difference between being easy-going and just easy? The book speaks of a young woman who has been far to easy throughout her life. Walked all over by her family, friends, and romantic interests, she goes through life seeking only to makes those around her content. Then an easy-going, good-natured, kind man enters her life, seeking to teach her the importance of keeping her own desires in mind. Sweet romantic story that reminds me somewhat of Jane Austen’s Persuasion.
