He’s walked back into her life –
After half a lifetime…
It’s years since Rohan Khan promised Dr. Elise van Hagen that he would be back for Christmas. He never returned and Elise raised their son alone. So, when the veterinarian reappears during a rescue in snowy Banff, Elise can’t believe her eyes! But Rohan has no memory of their past. Can these long-ago lovers make up for all the Christmases they have missed?
I received a copy of this book from Mills and Boon via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
This is a poignant but positive story that focuses on family, forgiveness and the future. Despite losing nearly three decades, the connection between Elise and Rohan is still passionate. Elise is a likeable character, a dedicated doctor and selfless mother. Meeting Rohan again is unexpected.
There’s a mystery surrounding their break-up which is devastating but gives hope for a future together. Neither are the same people who fell in love in their twenties, but this later life love story has more than memories to bind it.
The characters are believable and easy to like. The external conflicts are predominately historic. The internal conflicts are harder to overcome when they meet for a second time, but the chance of happiness and family life is a worthy goal.
There are some delightful animal characters in this festive story and a well-deserved happy ending.
