Rosie and Tom belong together.
For too long, war and its devastating aftermath have kept them apart.
Now that Tom has finally returned home, Rosie hopes that they will be able to put the past behind them.
But when a mysterious sequence of events unfolds, their love is put to the test once more.
With a shocking secret hanging heavily over their relationship…
With circumstances conspiring against them at every turn…
Rosie and Tom find themselves caught up in the biggest battle of their lives.
Will their demons ultimately consume them?
Or will love conquer all in the end?
Promoted as ‘quite possibly the strangest romance ever told’; after reading this unusual novella, it is more aptly described ‘the most poignant love story you will ever read’. This is a gentle love story full of passion and romance with an unlikely hero and heroine, who by the story’s end symbolise everything that true love means.
Sensitively written and raising some ethical issues, the plot is full of surprises that will change your preconceptions about romance and romantic couples and there are numerous twists to hold the reader’s interest. The characters are complex and demand a response from the reader. Rosie is feisty yet vulnerable. Tom is sweet and devoted, Chrissie is genuine and caring and Gemma is cynical and judgmental.
Although this is a short story, it has the depth and structure of a longer novel and a satisfying ending.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
