- This is a fast-moving and compelling story combined with a sympathetic study of relationships. In the Clark family, Nigel Hinton has created a classic trio of characters: Terry, the fun-loving Buddy Holly fan who is more of an adolescent than his own son; Carol, who has discovered that there's more to life than being a wife and a mother; and the intelligent and sensitive Buddy who tries desperately to keep his parents together. The funny, painful and moving conflicts between these three characters ring absolutely true and will strike chords of understanding in every reader.
