5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!! 1 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book shows the true enduring power of love. Jack is torn between two women, one so beautiful it hurts to look at her and the other, so sweet and devout. In the end Jack learn what truly matters and they both(Rosa and Jack) learn to let the past go. During the course of this book Jack learns what it is to have honor, for the life he lived previously was without. This is a book about two young women, one so starved her father's love that she would go to any lengths to have it, the other,the favored daughter, trying desperatly to hide from her past in the arms of God. It is a story of three men. One who has two daughters and finally when it is too late learns what really matters. The other had a nephew, who, to teach him a lesson in life, consigned him to three years in Hell. And the last, he learned his lesson, but is it too late to prove himself to his uncle and aunt and to the world? This is a page turner and I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 13 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Megan Chance has written another wonderful novel. Jack is hand picked by Rosalie's father to become her husband and be his heir. The only problems are 1) Rosalie does not want to get married, she wants to become a nun, and 2) Rosalie's younger sister Corrine is the most beautiful woman Jack has ever seen and she's set out to win Jack's heart too. When Corrine becomes pregnant by another man, she is determined to win Jack over so she can convince everybody that Jack is the father of her baby. Rosalie has her own secrets, guilt so strong that she feels she must devote her life to the church. This is a wonderful story and I highly recommend it.

1.0 out of 5 stars BOOOOORING. Not worth the time of day. 8 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This has got to be one of the weakest books I have ever read. It GRATED on my nerves. Pathetic is a word that comes to mind. I kept waiting for the story and the action to begin. NO DEPTH at all. Weak characterization. Weak plot etc. etc. All the little french phrases were RIDICULOUS! And all the religion and hokus pokus were very distasteful. Extremely weak writing. This book could've been half as long and we wouldn't have missed a thing. So drawn out and directionless. Dare I say it again -- pathetic! I give it a great big YUK!

5.0 out of 5 stars A rich and moving romance 1 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Megan Chance always seems to be right on the edge between romance and women's fiction, and this book is no exception. A moving story of two women and the man who upsets both of their lives, it explores the nature of regret and honor with graceful language and a fine understanding of the nature of human frailty. A wise and moving book.
