I decided to pick The Smoke Jumper by Nicholas Evans. Page 123 of the book is just after the start of Chapter 8. The next three sentences after the 5th sentence on page 123 goes like this :
Julia had always adored him. He was her hero, a fine-looking young man, blond and tall, with a great sense of fun, the kind of dad a young girl's school friends envied. When you told him something, even some silly, trivial thing that happened at school, or gave him an opinion on something, he always made you feel that what you said was interesting and important.
Hmm... how so much can be said in just three sentences.
When I first read The Smoke Jumper, I was engrossed in the adventure story of the main characters who were volunteer fire-fighters. They help fight forest fires by parachuting down at the affected areas in advance of other firemen who follow on foot. It was only towards the end of the book that I realised that Evans was writing about a love story.
