First Sentence
A CIRCLING, confused wind had pelted the earth with a slashing rain for most of the day, but as night settled its ebon shroud upon the land, the driving storm and the erratic breezes abated. Read the first page

When Ashton Wingate, much sought after plantation owner, is married, he believes it to be for life. Fate conspires against Ashton and his lovely wife Lierin though, as Lierin gets killed on their honeymoon. Three years later Ashton is still grieving after his beloved. On his way home one night, though, his driver hits a woman that looks strikingly like Lierin. Only one thing is lacking to this fairy-tale ending, though. The woman whom Ashton claims as his wife has lost her memory. She doesn't remember Ashton or their love for each other. Is she truly Ashton's wife or someone else's all together? You'll love this book. My copy is currently falling apart and dog-eared from the many times I have re-read it. Do yourself a favor and read this book.

I have read and own all of Kathleen Woodiwiss' books and this is one of her best. To Ashton she is Lieren who he thought he had lost in a river boat accident but to Malcolm she is Lierens twin sister Lenore. All the way through the book you are intriged by Lieren/Lenores fight to find her true identity and the romance that is reawaked as only Kathleen Woodiwiss know how. Brilliant

Ashton Wingate, handsome plantation owner and grieving widower, is still haunted by the death of his beloved wife some three years ago. Imagine his shock, when a woman strikingly like his wife is hit by Ashton's carriage on his way home! Only one thing lies in the way of Ashton proving to everyone that this is actually his dear wife Lierin-she's lost her memory. But who is she? Is she Ashton's wife, or the wife of someone entirely different? This book is a definite must-read with finely drawn characters on many complex levels.

I enjoyed the book until the end. The ending dialogues just seemed ridiculous. Why would Malcolm have explained everything to her? Why would Ashton have left the house unsecure? Many things bothered me. I will give Ms Woodiwiss one more try.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Newly wed Ashton Wingate and his wife Lierin are set upon by river pirates and Lierin is swept off the boat into the river and presumed drowned. Three years later Ashton's carriage collides with a woman on horseback and he is shocked to see that it is his "dead" wife, who recalls nothing of her past, including her husband. But is she really Lierin or her twin sister Lenore? Thus begins KEW's entertaining take on your basic amnesia plot.

Woodiwiss does a nice job with the romance of Ashton and Lierin, plenty of mystery, suspense and evil villains -- albeit the villains were just a tad bit over the top for me. I give Ashton extra points in the hero category, despite his strong desire for Lierin, he gave her space to make her own decisions while she sorted out her lost memory of their past together. I have to admit about 2/3 of the way through the book I was onto at least a part of the big surprise, but there was more to it than I had guessed. My major quibble is the very abrupt ending to the book; I would very much have appreciated an epilogue to round the end out. All in all, a pleasant romance and while it's not a great novel it's still a worthwhile way to spend a rainy afternoon. 3.5 stars
