This is a very character driven story of two lonely people falling in love, along with how Kurt's young son learns to trust and love the father he has never really known.
I enjoyed this more than the last book of Ryan's that I tried but there were still
Likes: that Kurt has a legitimate reason to be in the South, without money and
in need of it to return home. That Charlie (the son) acts like a five year old. He's
not too precocious and he doesn't use lisping or baby talk. That Helen doesn't
immediately melt into Kurt's arms or stand around staring at him in a lust daze.
That Ryan seems to have done her Farming 101 research.
Problems: The townspeople near Helen at first ostracize her (all summer long
for four months) for hiring a Yankee, beat him up then *suddenly* the whole town
has a guilty conscience and shows up apologizing profusely and willing to
help rebuild Helen's farm after a terrible hurricane. That Ryan tells a lot more
than she shows and uses a simplistic writing style that worked for me at first
but quickly got tiresome. That the villain and his villainess are cardboard
and slightly OTT in skankiness.
One thing that could go either way is that Ryan has written a very hot story
with lots of simmering tension. Only the tension simmers for half the darn
book and gets just slightly old after a while. There are three very nice
secondary characters Jolly, a neighbor who befriends Charlie and starts
to draw him out of his shell and Helen's best friend Em and her beau
Coop. We get to see a lot of Jolly but not enough of Em and Coop's
I also wondered about the fact that very few people in this
town just outside of Mobile seemed to have suffered much deprivation
from the war. Yes, lives were lost and some of the houses are headed
into decline from lack of manpower to keep them up but no one seems
to have had any raids, confiscations or looting. Helen still has all her
china, crystal and silver. Wasn't Mobile invaded and occupied by
Union forces during the war? It just seemed odd to me.
If you are looking for a twist and turn dramatic off-your-seat kind of read, then this does not match your criteria. This is a pretty and simple historical romance for those to keep yourself cozy on a chilly winter night. I enjoyed every page of it! I am a fan of historical genre and this one did not disappoint!
If there were a Kindle version, I'd definitely purchase it! By the way, if any of you know any more stories of this sort (maybe with a little twist and turn either is fine), please do tell me! =)
