This is not a book done in her usual unforgetable style. I have read all Jude's books and often read them all more than once, but this one was extremely hard work, and most dissapointing, especially after waiting so long to get hold of it.But don't despair, after all it is only one bad book out of so many good ones.

The beginning of a very good writer.... 24 Jun. 2002
By Psboston7 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I happen to be a "true-blue" Deveraux fan. This book probably in it's day was excellent. It reminds me of the "Judith Michael" books or perhaps "Janet Dailey" the sweeping novels of the 80's. She describes a fictional place in New Mexico to a "T". What I did not like about this book was.... as someone mentioned the way it ended. There were some loose ends that were tied up but done so in the last 4 pages which gave me a "let-down" feeling. The characters were engaging but some things that happened in the book just didn't make much sense so I'm glad I have it to add to my collection but I would really like to caution someone if you are just purchasing it to add to your collection hold off and wait to get it at a reasonable price. Because in my opinion the story is not worth the price that I have seen on auctions.

It is, but it isn't Grand Deveraux Style. 24 Jun. 2007
By K M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I can tell this is one of her earlier works, perhaps written before The Enchanted land, but published after it. And finally having gotten hold of a copy, I can see why it was allowed to go out of print.

I'm glad to own a copy, and will probably never relinquish it, because I wanted the complete Deveraux collection, and this one marked its completion. However, I have to admit a serious disappointment, especially since I prefer her earlier works to her later ones.

To forewarn all the romance fans--this is not a romance. It's a grand story of a woman who grows up and discovers herself, and a fantastic tale of the business she starts, but overall, it's rather drawn-out and the conclusion seems anti-climactic.

Anyone who wants the complete collection should buy this, definitely, and even read it through, but I doubt it'll be a favorite.

NOT LIKE ANY OF HER MORE RECENT BOOKS. 22 Jun. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I WAS LUCKY TO FIND THIS BOOK IN MY LOCAL LIBRARY. I HAVE READ ALL OF JUDE DEVERAUX'S BOOKS (22) I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR IT FOREVER. IT IS NOT HER USUAL STYLE, BUT I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH IT. AS A MATTER OF FACT, I HAD TO RATION IT OUT SO THAT I WOULD NOT RUSH THROUGH IT AND MISS SOMETHING. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.

Practice Makes Perfect 1 Dec. 1997
By Kelly Zehr (rtz4m@virginia.edu) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Jude Deveraux's first book, to me, left a lot to be desired. As usual the description is wonderful, but the story was a bit lacking. The ending left me wnating more and trying to figure it out. Other of her novels, especially the historical ones seem to be the best.

An intereseting find from Jude Devereaux's past. 9 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you can get a hold of this book, read it! It is not her best work, but you can see the talent. The story is good, but the total book is lacking her normal style.
