However, I really enjoyed the rest of the book, and overall preferred it to Paper Roses. Seeing the healing that gradually took place in both Priscilla and Zach was wonderful, although I did feel that the ending was a bit rushed, and that the last stage of Priscilla's healing was too sudden. I do hope though that we see more of the two of them and their happiness in the next book.
I continued to enjoy the interesting town of Ladreville, with its mix of French and German residents. There was a lot going on in the story beside the development of the relationship between Zach and Priscilla. Most of the characters from Paper Roses made an appearance, as well as one or two new faces being introduced. I'm looking forward to reading the third book in this trilogy.
Only the ethnic tension between the ex Alsace towns folk, which is carried through from the first book comes across as real and not part of a bog standard paint by numbers plot. Also, there is a secondary romance between the French Isabelle and German Gunther which deserved more narrative space, they came across as far more real than the main h&H. I would have loved it if they had their own stand alone story.
Added to this, I am so tired of the over used red haired heroine. I have nothing against red heads, my own chestnut hair has a lot of red in it and I was a strawberry blonde in early childhood, but redheads are really rare even in the states where only about 6% are red haired. Yet at least half of the romance heroines, particularly in the books by US authors are red heads! Also, do heroes always have to be 6 foot or above? Is that a rule somewhere? Do they always have to be about 8 years or more older than the heroine? Why must 98% of heroes and heroines be drop dead gorgeous, is just averagely attractive or plain, or ugly heroes and heroines too much to ask even of so called Christian fiction?
Also, the h&H may struggle to overcome their trials throughout the book, but then suddenly all falls into place rather than gradually improving.Read more ›
