Balm for the Romance Reader’s Soul
This author is talented and writes both historical and contemporary romance. In her historical romances, I have appreciated her attention to historical detail that doesn’t seem like it weighs down the story. I haven’t read as many of her contemporary romances. In fact, this might be the first one. It’s hard to describe this one. If you’ve read very angsty romances lately, this one might be balm for your reader’s soul. It’s sweet, in all the ways that word implies when talking about romance, and gentle. The hero is all that you would want him to be: persistent in his pursuit but still kind and gentlemanly. The heroine has a strength that is only slowly revealed; she has a complicated past. I particularly loved the little moments where the heroine connected with her spiritual side; the pivotal moment when she senses her mother is breathtaking. It’s a romance, so it’s not really a spoiler to say that this has an HEA, but the proposal is stunning. When I got to the end, I was intrigued by the author’s note, where she stated that much of the book was based in fact. I think that makes a story even more of a delight. A lovely little romance.
