By A Customer
This review is from: With All My Heart (Mass Market Paperback)
By 1850, Colin and Decker Thorne are still rejoice the fact of their finding one another after a long separation and marrying the women they love. However, the two siblings feel that life would be perfect if they can only reunite with their third brother, who apparently was recently using the identity of Graham Denison. Desperate for help, the Thorne brothers turn to Boston clairvoyant Berkley Shaw, who touches an earring that Graham once possessed. Before fainting, Berkley claims that Graham is both dead and living in San Francisco. The Thorne siblings decide to fund Berkley's trip to California to find their lost brother.
In San Francisco, Grey Janeway rescues Berkley from several thugs at the docks. Grey finds himself immediately attracted to her and hires Berkley to be his hostess at his gambling establishment. She believes he is the missing sibling. However, as she tries to uncover his identity, the duo falls in love with one another. However, a lasting relationship seems remote since they both have secrets and the Thorne brothers' quest embroils them in a dangerous situation.
WITH ALL MY HEART, the third novel in Jo Goodman's "Thorne" series is like its two predecessors (see MY STEADFAST HEART and MY RECKLESS HEART) a warm, wonderful, and witty historical romance. The story line is filled with action and excitement that make mid-nineteenth century San Francisco seems so alive. The characters are brilliantly
developed to include Berkley's special talent. The return of protagonists from the first two novels augments the tale. This trilogy is must reading by sub-genre fans.
