HASH(0x8dbfa24c) out of 5 stars Unexpected Disappointment 15 April 2014
By Debra Fay Bean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love Caroline Linden and quickly ordered this without reading the details, simply because she wrote it. Shame on me. Although only $.99, at only 33 pages it was overpriced. Unsurprisingly, the story didn't have much to it. It started well, then out of the blue the guy expresses his love the and it's over. No character development, no conflict, no story. I honestly have no idea why this was considered ready for publication, it was really just the beginning of a potentially good story. I will continue to look for Caroline Linden's work, but will definitely pay attention to the fine print and make sure to only order full-length books.

HASH(0x899b0c8c) out of 5 stars Tie a Yellow Ribbon for Waterloo Wounded 6 Dec. 2013
By Joy-read - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
3.75 stars. A sweet and clean novella by the talented Caroline Linden. Childhood friends (no aristocrats) grow up together in a small English village. He looks out for Jane, carries her books, chases the bullies away, just like a brother would. When he goes away to battle Boney, she writes to him, every single week. For three years. Faithfully. And cares for his dog, the incredibly faithful Puck.

The story begins with Waterloo reported in every paper. Then England waits to hear the casualty reports. Jane waits, hoping and praying that he didn't die in the bloody battle. Finally, the casualty reports are published. Okay, but he could be very sick. Injured badly. Even lost. Missing in action. Jane and Puck wait and worry some more. The whole village waits. The ladies in the seamstress shop wait. Tensely. Seemed realistic.

She wonders if he misses her like she misses him. But they were always more like adoptive siblings. Just friends....

Meanwhile, we get his POV, on the muddy battlefield. We learn what her letters have meant to him. And to others.

I guess the best thing that came of this novella was the realization that I would like to write to a soldier, too. Just to provide comfort and a sense of home. Letters can make such a difference to a disheartened, sick, cold, wet, muddy, miserable -- and maybe wounded -- warrior. Linden did a decent job making that point.

Quibble: I wish she had provided a more solid setting. The date. Exactly when did Napoleon meet his Waterloo? What time of year? April, if memory serves? I dunno.

I highly recommend Like None Other, another novella by this author, about a retired naval admiral (or was he a captain?) falling for his new neighbor. Loved it! And by the way, Like None Other is also a clean romance, just like this one is (most of Linden's long books include sex).

Like None Other is also sold in the huge anthology [The Mammoth Book of Regency Romance (Mammoth Books)]

I think WRITTEN IN MY HEART may be my first read by Caroline Linden. Set in Regency England at the end of the Napoleonic war. I loved the premise of a small English village, Caxby-on-Avon, waiting to hear which of their young men would be coming home and which would not.War changes everything. But not for Jane, whose love for her childhood friend Ethan remained steady through the years of separation by war. It took Sgt. Ethan Campbell that whole time to realize (through others' unsolicited advice) that Jane loves him. Why else would she write every week for three long years?

Ms. Linden did a superb job letting me know just enough information, right when I needed it to understand the story before the book began. I loved so many turns of phrase, so many beautiful ways of saying things, I could literally see the characters in my mind. I had to highlight so many sentences and paragraphs on my Kindle. The first kiss was so incredibly tender, so very telling about the state of the emotions and hearts of both Ethan and Jane, my heart fairly melted. The story worked on so many levels. Kudos to Ms. Linden!

HASH(0x8a5e3054) out of 5 stars A SHORT STORY OF LOVE 21 Feb. 2016
By Texanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a story of yearning.

Jane has been writing to Ethan for 3 years. He is in the British army and the Battle of Waterloo has just been completed. When Ethan's name does not appear on any death lists, Ethan should be home soon.

Jane's heart is waiting to see him safely home.

These two have been friends since childhood, and because of all the exchanged letters the friendship has become so much more.

This is a sweet short story which reminds everyone of young love and all the tenderness which goes with it.

Caroline Linden has created an entire wonderful story in very few words. She is a talented author.

This book pulled me in to experience the sweet feelings of childhood friends realizing they're in love. Jane works as a seamstress and while she's sewing, watches out the window for Ethan's return from war after the battle of Waterloo. Ethan is on the battlefield in the aftermath of Waterloo commiserating with his comrades and hoping to return home soon. Through their actions and dialogue with friends, they each realize how much they miss and love each other. Their reunion is super sweet. I wish the story were a little longer, but that's only because I enjoyed it and wasn't ready for it to end!

** Clean short story.
