5.0 out of 5 stars Eloquence., 8 May 2005
This review is from: Till Next We Meet (Mass Market Paperback)
Karen Ranney's technique repeatedly captivates me. Ranney always fills her books with beautiful words and powerful sentences. Again, in TILL NEXT WE MEET, the author presents her exquisite writing style. Her words flow with artistic form and vivid description.
Catherine Dunnan is lonely. Married only one month, Catherine is overwhelmed when her new husband goes to war. Yet, his letters give Catherine a reason to live, to dream, to survive. He fills her heart with sincere tenderness and promise, bringing her comfort and hope, allowing Catherine a future.
Colonel Moncrief's first letter to Catherine Dunnan was easy to write. He penned it from pity. Colonel Moncrief felt sorry for Catherine; after all, her husband was the most unethical man he had ever met! No man, such as Harry Dunnan, deserved such loyalty, such compassion, such love as Catherine dispensed. Signing Harry Dunnan's name was easy; it was done to reassure Catherine Dunnan. However, one letter quickly turned into a year long secret relationship, a relationship built on fraud.
Colonel Moncrief of the Lowland Scots Fusiliers was now the Duke of Lymond. He was back in Scotland to assume his duties and obligations. It was his duty to call upon the grief-stricken Catherine Dunnan. He went out of protocol and honor. He often called upon relatives of fallen comrades - to express regret. Catherine Dunnan was no different - or was she?
Karen Ranney wrote a beautiful story. The love letters are tender and stunning.
To further enhance her book, Ranney spread "story secrets" throughout. However, the secrets disenchanted me; these "story bombshells" seemed to lack the passion and intensity found in the rest of Ranney's story. Still, the author is right on track with this lovely love story. TILL NEXT WE MEET is very impressive.
Grade A-
