Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you're an Elizabeth Lowell fan, you'll be used to great love scenes, tingling sensuality and a lot of intensity that really satisfies. This book does not quite hit the Lowell spot as well as her other books.
Joy and Gabriel met when they young and, as usual, consumated their attraction just before he had to leave as he had to explore the world, etc. So, off he goes to have an exciting life and make himself even more irresistible. The heroine stays put, pregnant, having the child, and never moving forward emotionally or even physically. (sounds familiar?)
Anyway, back he comes, the brave hero and the attraction is still there. He finds about the child and they fall in love again once they can forgive each other.
This is not a bad book at all, just way too predictable. The heroine is a little dull and you really do feel that she should have pulled herself together and gotten a life.
The book itself is well researched and the descriptions of caving are fascinating. I don't think I would ever be able to do something like that.
I'd borrow it from a friend, rather than rush out to buy it. It's OK, but not a keeper.

I have read all of Elizabeth Lowell's books and found this one a bit boring....make no mistake, I am a huge fan.....but this one seems to have a little bit of all her other books - in other words it didn't feel new. Her love scenes are always great but that isn't enough is it ??

Older Book... Timeless Love Story 1 Jan. 2003
By Deborah L. Correll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Couldn't quite pull the 5 Star rating for me, but I was intrigued - first by the fact that Elizabeth Lowell was the author, and second that this was a "reconditioned version" of the '86 book. Too bad it took seven years for the star-crossed lovers Joy & Gabe to get their act together, but I enjoyed seeing these two characters 'spark'. Fatefully, seven years ago Joy, as a very young woman met Gabe when he was a budding journalist working on a cave exploration site in New Mexico with her parents. After a brief, but tender love affair, Gabe leaves Joy to further his career, not knowing Joy was pregnant with his child. Joy soon loses her parents to a tragic accident, and couragiously raises her child, earns her doctorate, and continues to pursue her parents' dream studying the Lost River Cave. Enter Gabe, seven years later, unaware of Joy's presense, his child, and is HE in for a big surprise! Joy is no longer an innocent, clinging young woman - and he is in for the fight of his life. It's all about choices. Career and success vs. happiness and contentment. This story is a keeper.

Disappointing 9 April 2003
By G. Greene - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It pains me to give this author so few stars, because by and large, her work is excellent. I personally enjoyed all the details about spelunking; one of Lowell's great strengths is the amount of research she draws on for her novels. But if you aren't interested in the subject, you will be bored by this book, because there is a huge amount of detail about it, to the point that all the caving descriptions are at the expense of plot and character development.
The hero didn't appeal to me; it's difficult to like, much less respect, a man who seduces a young woman and then disappears without ever following up with her personally to see if there were any consequences from their affair, and THEN has the nerve to be outraged when he thinks she had an abortion after he abandoned her. Immaturity and irresponsibility are just not characteristics I find attractive in a man. My sole response to the hero was that he needed grow up and get over himself. As for the heroine, she was just a little too much of a stoic victim to suit my tastes.
I wish Lowell had left this book in the past, where it belonged, and spent her time writing a good novel instead of rehashing one that was mediocre at best to begin with, and certainly NOT worth a hardcover edition.

Very Boring Romance 19 Sept. 2004
By Elizabeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was very disappointed with this novel. The hero Gabe was very immature and self centered. Basically Gabe Venture is on assignment and meets 20 year old Joyce who is a virgin. They meet, they fall in love, he has sex with her. He doesn't wait around to find out if she is pregnant but leaves on his next assignment. Joyce is pregnant and tries to contact him through his brother who won't give her any forwarding info but $3700 that Gabe left for Joyce. Gabe finds out Joyce took the $3700 and assumes she had an abortion, and has the nerve to be upset. How dare she abort his child? He has abandoned her with the excuse he has to take care of his mother and older brother (two adults perfectly capable of taking care of themselves) and he leaves a 20 year old alone and pregnant. Seven years pass and Gabe returns to do a second article on Lost River Caving. He meets Joy and guess what she never had an abortion. This is pretty much the story line of the entire book, and it doesn't get any deeper than this. The rest of the story spells out in boring minute detail the aspects of caving which is what the heroine Joy does and which Gabe is writing his story about. There are pages and pages of information about equipment; how to wash and clean them; what is exactly in their back packs before they go caving; but no other plot development or story line. This was one of the most boring romance novels I have ever read. Very disappointing.

More "I know everything" main characters were never found... 14 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I like a good romance. This isn't one. Forget the fact that the author provided WAY to many details on caving. The fact that Joy and Gabe never talked really got to me. All they did was dwell silently on the past and what the other person MUST be thinking. Ask for heaven's sake! You aren't mind readers. I listened to the book on tape only to kill time while driving. I don't think I would have made it through by reading.

Do you want to know about cave exploration???? 2 Feb. 2003
By PAULA FRITZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
I am a big fan of romance, esp. Elizabeth Lowell, BUT, what a disappointment. If you are into cave exploration, learning the "lingo" of climbing, what to wear, and how to describe the inside of a cave, then this is the book for you. I bought the unabridged audio and after the first tape, it was hard not to hit the eject button on the second one. The audio could have been 2 tapes instead of 6, if you left out the cave explorations. The characters were constantly having thoughts about their past, but would not tell each other how they felt. This kept getting old. Give Elizabeth Lowell another try, but I would definitely skip this one.
