Architect Matthew Gray has his hands full. He's dealing with the loss of his father, and trying to find the saboteur at his
family's mining operation. The unexpected arrival of lovely Bethany is one more complication he doesn't need. Nevertheless, the two work well together, forming a realistic bond that will last through time.
Another Susan Plunkett winner. I can't wait for Caitlin's story!
Architect Matthew Gray grieves the loss of his father when Bethany lands at his feet. Matthew, who believes someone is sabotaging his family's mining operation, wonders what to do with this bewildered witch, who soon takes over the local teaching position. As they fall in love, will Bethany be able to make the commitment to Matthew; an emotion she never could do in what was her birth decade.
The second River of Time tale is an engaging time travel romance that will excite the audience with its insightful look at the gay nineties in Alaska. As with the lead female in the first novel (ALICIA'S SONG), Bethany adapts too easily to a less technological era. Still the audience will admire her courage to overcome her demons (from a car accident that injured her and killed her parents) to find love with Matthew. BETHANY'S SONG is a winner that will leave sub-genre fans wanting to quantum leap into the future to read the concluding tale starring Caitlin.
Bethany is singing in a graveyard in modern day Wyoming with her sisters Alicia and Caitlyn when the River of Time sweeps her away to 1895 Juneau, Alaska. There she meets the handsome widowed architect Matthew Gray, who is as riveted by her beauty and plucky spirit as she is by his integrity and magnetic presence.
But both Bethany and Matthew carry deep emotional scars from their past that make it nearly impossible to risk their hearts. Bethany also hides the physical scars of a devastating car accident that left her barren, while Matthew has resolved never to marry again and risk a repeat of two years before when his wife and infant son died in childbirth. Bethany is afraid to reveal her fantastic origin to Matthew while he is unsettled that she will share very little about her past.
While they fight their overwhelming attraction, clever Bethany figures out a number of ways to support herself, and Matthew delves deeper into the apparent corruption plaguing the mine he has just inherited. Bethany assists the investigation, and she and Matthew are drawn unwillingly into a passionate affair. It is only when their discoveries nearly cost Bethany her life that she and Matthew are able to acknowledge their love and believe in a future together before it�s too late.
Plunkett creates complex and appealing characters the reader loves and follows with rapt attention. As with Alicia�s Song, I could barely turn the pages of Bethany�s Song fast enough as exciting plot twists unfolded in the unforgettably magnificent Alaskan landscape.
Bethany�s Song is immensely enjoyable. Plunkett writes with a rare passion, sensitivity, wit, intelligence and genuine heartfelt emotion. Like all of her work, Bethany�s Song is not to be missed.
