A Note from an Old Acquaintance by Bill Walker

I’ll keep this short and sweet. This book was just a love story that reminded of reality in a bad way. The storyline is centered around a man named Brian who fell in a love with a woman named Joanna in 1991 when she was engaged to a man named Ruby. Something big happened, and Brian decided to leave without giving Joanna any reason why. Flash forward to 15 years later and Joanna contacts Brian (after the death of his wife); Brian goes to see Joanna (who is and has been married to Ruby for 15 years), and you can probably guess the rest of the story. I'd recommend this to anyone that wants an easy to read love story without getting into anything too complex. 3 stars.

  • Brian and Joanna are both artists, and Walker describes the feelings and love for art well.
  • The writing is strong and easy to read. I didn’t once think that he was a terrible writer.
  • Nice simple love story.


  • The whole theme of the book- cheating on your fiancé and husband for true love. If you found true love somewhere else, break it off before you do anything about it. Joanna used Ruby just as much as he used her.
  • How everything fell into place so easily after 15 years; there was really no conflict.
  • Joanna.
