Barbara Rosenblat's flawless reading makes this a thoroughly enjoyable story about love and adversity with appeal far broader than that of a traditional romance novel. The story focuses upon Jace Randall, who falls in love with Maddie Shepard. Jake's sister, Eden, sabotages the pair, and the plot takes another turn when Jace and Maddie learn of Eden's duplicity. It is from this point that the novel is especially interesting, and it offers a highly satisfying ending. As usual, Rosenblat's reading is smooth, and her ability to convey the characters' emotions is superb. Rosenblat's vocal characterizations enhance the listener's experience, particularly during the dialogue between Jace and the women in his life.
