Come November is a story of hope, redemption and second chances. Told from alternating time periods of 1947 and 2003, suspense is built as Jeanne and John's past collides with their present. It was fun to read about Jeanne's UN trip as a high school student, which was apparently based on a real trip that the author's mother was a part of. For Jeanne's character, this trip was life changing and began a lifelong interest in world affairs as well as bringing to light a significant event in world history that is often forgotten. John's character is tenacious and goes after what he wants without a lot of thought for consequences. The tension in the story rises as John attempts to stop the assassination plot as well as when John and Jeanne finally meet in Italy. In 2003, John and Jeanne are older, but with the same feelings they shared in 1947. However, personal problems and experience tells them to be more careful with their hearts this time around.
