Old Fashioned, Chivalry Makes a Comeback
Paperback 285 Pages

Turning his back on his reckless lifestyle, former frat boy Clay Walsh has settled down to run an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town... and to pursue lofty and outdated theories on love and romance. But when Amber Hewson, a free-spirited woman with a gypsy soul, rents the apartment above his shop, Clay can't help being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life. Amber also finds herself surprisingly drawn to Clay, but his ideas about relationships are unusual to say the least, and they bring to light her own deep wounds and fears about love.
They say opposites attract but can Clay and Amber move beyond their differences an their pasts to attempt an "old fashioned" courtship?
 The book, in a strange twist, was written after the movies screenplay! It follows the movie but gets a bit more descriptive as to Clays past.


The Old Fashioned Way, Reclaiming the Lost Art of Romance

Contrary to popular opinion, being “old fashioned” doesn’t mean you’re dull or unromantic. In fact, a true old-fashioned relationship can be more exciting and romantic than anything you’ve ever experienced! So what does it mean to do things The Old Fashioned Way? Sure, it means opening doors, holding out chairs, and taking things slow. But a true old-fashioned romance goes much deeper than that. Inspired by the motion picture Old Fashioned, this book will show you how to reclaim the lost art of romance by introducing you to romantic love as God intended it―for all of us. Regardless of your past experiences, where you’ve been, or where you are now, you can find and create a love that will last a lifetime.

As you work your way through this 40-day journey of inspiring readings and questions for reflection, you’ll discover all the unique and amazing benefits of doing things the old-fashioned way and be well on your way to creating a love story for the ages.

 Each day in the book ends with a prayer and a Consider This list of things to ponder. I have yet to complete the entire 40 day journey, but am close to finishing it.  I have a new found respect for the "Old Fashioned Way". I have handed my copies of the books over to my oldest daughter and hope that she will find inspiration as well. Both books are very well written and not hard to get through.

  2. my husband and I ate steaks off a cardboard box for a table and then walked down the beach hand in hand just enjoying each other,,this was our second date

  3. Yours sounds like a great date. I don't know if we've ever gone on a "date", but we've done a lot of hiking, camping, fishing, canoeing, geocaching, etc. together - all of which makes me happy.
