Synopsis: Every lover has her story, and every town has its secrets. 
It’s 1946 in New Zealand, and Alice Holden has fallen for the woman delivering her milk every morning. Jean has a way about her, a swagger, honey-sweet and low voice, and a wink with an easy smile that lights up Alice’s world, stirring her in ways she’s never known before, and Alice with blinders on, wants to choose this feeling over all else. 
Jean has been head over heels in love with the sparky and adorable single mother since the first time she saw her. She’s even drawn to Alice’s two fatherless children, and family life has never looked so good. Jean’s deep desire to have more than a life spent looking in from the outside seems more than she should hope for, and now Alice has her tossing the dice for it against all odds. 
But there are two people in town who believe they have the prior claim to Alice, in duty and affection, and they’ll do almost anything to get what they want. 
Alice and Jean have discovered that each is what the other has always longed for, each other’s missing link. Now they need to find a way to be together, despite the obstacles.

Review: Amazing story. I was pulled in and could feel my heart flutter and race and my face flush right along with Alice's. Alice & Jean is truly a love story for the ages. A must read for anyone who believes in soulmates and true love.
