Editoral Review

Linda Kage’s To Professor, with Love is a heart-warming and inspiring novel that is sure to leave readers deeply satisfied. The book, published on April 26, 2014, is a contemporary romance that explores themes of love, forgiveness, and redemption.

The story follows the life of Remmy Winters, a twenty-two-year-old college student who has hit rock bottom after losing her scholarship and being kicked out of her dorm. Desperate for a place to stay, she responds to an ad seeking a live-in tutor for a retired professor suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

What follows is a touching and poignant journey of self-discovery, as Remmy learns to face her fears, embrace her pain, and heal her broken heart with the help of the charming and enigmatic Professor. Kage’s writing style is flawless, and she has a knack for creating characters that are relatable and authentic.

The dialogue is natural and engaging, and the pacing is perfect, keeping the reader engaged from the first page to the last. The setting is a small college town that is perfectly realized, with its quirky characters and vibrant social scene reflecting the angst and drama of college life.

One of the strengths of the book is its exploration of mental illness, specifically Alzheimer’s disease. The Alzheimer’s sub-plot is sensitively handled, giving readers a glimpse into the mind of someone living with the disease, while also highlighting the importance of patience, understanding, and empathy.

The relationship between Remmy and the Professor is the heart and soul of this novel. Kage does an excellent job of building the chemistry between the two characters, creating tension and emotional depth that is both touching and heartwarming.

The romance between them is slow-burning and organic, making it all the more satisfying when they finally get together. However, despite its many strengths, To Professor, with Love is not without its flaws.

The novel’s plot can be predictable at times, and some of the secondary characters feel underdeveloped. Additionally, the book could have benefited from more editing to tighten the pacing and trim some of the excess plot points.

That being said, To Professor, with Love is an excellent book that is sure to appeal to fans of contemporary romance. It is a beautifully written, heartfelt, and inspiring story that explores the power of love, forgiveness, and redemption.

This is a book that will stay with readers long after they turn the final page. I highly recommend To Professor, with Love to anyone looking for an uplifting and engaging read.

This book is perfect for fans of Nicholas Sparks, Emily Giffin, and Jojo Moyes. I give it a rating of four out of five stars.
