  1. Thanks for these recommendations! Unexpected Love sounds like a fun, light read. You had me at “SJP Replay.” I’m also interested in Hindsight. I took an intensive Chaucer class one summer. We meet twice a week for three hours each, and it was one of my best summers in college. Might be a fun way to relive some memories and embark on a new adventure at the same time!
