No one knows when the Observers originally arrived on Earth, but their unveiling was an event not to be forgotten. Somewhere in the world, nuclear warheads where launched escalating into war. Everyone was glued to the television with TV announcers giving us 20 minutes until the end of the world. Then they appeared on TV with an offer no one would refuse--We will save Earth from destruction if you allow us to study man-kind. The Observers got what they requested with no resistance.
Zara Mitchell is just a small town owner of a dinner trying to make ends meet. After her parents died, she was forced to support her younger brother Wiki is aware of the following uses of "'Younger Brother":

Life is just beginning to get easier. Zara is finally able to move on--an application to the local community college awaits her at home, the diner diner, restaurant resembling the railroad dining car that is its source. In the mid-19th cent., the first dining cars that appeared on trains were nothing more than an empty car with a fastened-down table. George M. has enough staff to allow her free-time, and her brother is currently in college. Then in walks an Observer, a silvery sil·ver·y

The Observer, Caelan is convinced Zara is the fulfillment of a prophecy and he will do anything to gain her compliance. Zara is very confused. She doesn't know if she can trust Caelan. Everything in her life has been destroyed in some way by the Observers. How can she trust a being whose existence caused her so much pain? Why is another Observer trying to kill her?
Thus begins The Silver Spoon by local Chicago author Stacey Klemstein. The storyline slowly evolves with a mystery woven into the story that has some unanticipated twists and turns. Klemstein sets a pace that allows the reader to become involved in the storyline. Caelan and Zara are very likable characters who have many layers to their personalities. Zara has a wonderful sense of humor Noun 1. sense of humor - the trait of appreciating (and being able to express) the humorous; "she didn't appreciate my humor"; "you can't survive in the army without a sense of humor"

While it would be easy to classify The Silver Spoon as a romance, which would vastly underrate the book. The book has a romance element, but it is more of an entertaining science fiction adventure.
