Love is a grace that lasts a lifetime. Margie Lockwood, working out from the mainstream of the romantic genre, evolves a story of love as an always exciting element – it drives the fluid narrative of Rocco and Blossom, A Love Story, a novel that spans more than five decades through the lives of a pair of lovers. Lockwood recounts the various phases of love in their relationship – from its first blossoming, through forced separation to marriage and children, through the storms that marriage weathers and its golden years. It makes readers believe that lifelong love and physical attraction are not as rare as the current trends might lead them to believe.

Love is glorious in all things that it finds, this is what readers will get from Rocco and Blossom Carnavale’s story. Lockwood takes an unconventional lens to the narrative by working the story via the twin perspectives of Rocco and Blossom – creating a well-wrought undercurrent of thoughts that go on in both male and female minds in the process of loving. It is a wonderful thing that Lockwood achieves – it takes readers into the true heart of the matter and a fuller, deeper understanding of romance.

Love becomes a piety that makes life sacred. Rocco and Blossom recognize an immediate and natural love for each other the first time they meet. They recognize in each other a unique complement and strive to bring out the good that they see in each other. For them, love does not weaken into false realities – a part of the story in which they are apart makes them test and fully control the emotional dimension. When they love and wed, truth is something that is natural to their relationship, faith is a constant that spreads out to encompass family and friends, and their bond makes readers know that true love is a virtue of the divine in everyone.
