The blurb on this book touted it as “perfect for fans of Mary Balogh” with the “deeply emotional tale of two devoted lovers facing the ravages of war” Of course there was no way I could resist a sell like that And I have to say the book delivers on its promiseAs the story begins Grace is still mourning the loss of her husband Michael has been presumed dead for nearly a year ever since an intense battle in the Crimean War The world thinks she should be ready to move on but Grace loved Michael deeply and she isn’t ready to let him go That turns out to be a good thing when he turns up alive on her front porchGrace is elated to have the love of her life return but she learns uickly that he is not the man he once was Michael suffered brain damage during the war and it affects him in many different ways He has debilitating headaches; he has trouble reading and writing; his short term memory is terrible; and he is uick to anger He is unlike the Michael of her memories and yet he is the man she is in love with the man she mourned Despite any of the obstacles Grace is determined not to take their second chance for granted This as Michael uestions whether she would have been better off without himI read a fair number of books with tortured heroes since I tend to seek them out This one is a little different though in that the love of a good woman just isn’t enough to make everything ok So often in these books the happiness found in the heroine’s arms overshadows all the ugliness in the hero’s life But this book doesn’t take that approach It takes a hard look at whether love can be enough to hold these two together even without the hope that everything else –or anything else– can be fixed It can be hard to read at times Michael has a very difficult road and he often makes it worse by pushing Grace away But I like this dark realism Yes I like my fantasy sometimes that love conuers all but does it reallyBoth Grace and Michael are well drawn and sympathetic characters Through their present day actions intermingled with flashbacks the author paints a very solid picture of real love between them It’s lovely at times but at other times heartbreaking or sexy hopeless or hopeful I won’t spoil the ending but I appreciate that it strays a bit from the norm while still leaving me satisfiedI would recommendRating BB ARC provided by publisher

I received an advanced reader copy from Net Galley for an honest review I’m so glad I took a chance on this incredible story It is a story that will haunt you and cling to your memory for days after you finish the book This is a story of overcoming great odds and coming out of it a stronger and better person The deep emotional pain that Michael Ashworth the Earl of Blackbourne experiences ate at my soul and brought tears to my eyes His utter despair at times is palpable At times I did get a bit irritated with Michael when he is at his lowest but ultimately he faces up to his challenges and begins to move forward However this is after he puts his wife Grace through a lot of needless painWhile this story does have several secondary characters it is primarily about Michael and Grace and their struggle to be together and learn to live with his disability a disability that cannot be seen by the world It is a disability that would torment anyone and especially a strong proud man such as MichaelI love Grace’s determination and will to help Michael adapt to his changed world She refuses to cower when he gives into his temper anger he never had before his injuries She is a true saint and never gives up on him even when he is at his worst She fights for their love even when Michael attempts to send her awayThis is not an easy story to read It’s filled with angst as Michael faces the changes his disability has caused in his personality One thing that is never in doubt is the love they feel for each other but this couple has to go through a lot to find their HEAThe story line is uite uniue and kept me turning the pages Ms Cullen does an excellent job with building tension yet not so much that it frustrated me The timing of the love scenes are close to perfect and highly charged with passion and deep emotionIf you enjoy a well written historical romance with great character development then this is a book you will want to read I will be looking for other books from this talented author Happy reading
