The meeting of 'old friends' on the Egyptian soil solidifies the romantic aspect of the story. Also it was noble of Pip to adopt the baby, and good of John Henry to help them on their way. At the beginning, the two characters didn't fit together, but hey! They DO say opposite attract right? Well, in my opinion, Ms, Kingsley did a wonderful job showing that its small world and that past love never dies.

As the port of Alexandria came into view, Portia Merriem trembled with excitement. Here she was, the stepdaughter of a marquess, about ot live an Egyptian adventure. But instead of enjoying thrilling excavations, Pip found herself on a houseboat on the Nile, praying for a miracle that would save her pregnant traveling companion. When help finally arrived, she thought she must be dreaming. He was John Henry Lovell, the friend and protector of her childhood...a world away from this powerful man who stared at her with eyes of a stranger.

He'd loved her all his life. And now, like a ghost from the past, she stood before him as heartbreakingly beautiful as ever. She was the reason John Henry had fled Norfold. Yet how could he abandon her now -alone in a foreign land and determined to raise another woman's child as her own? The only way to avoid scandal was to return to England...as man and wife. And later, when the gossip had quieted, he'd give her her freedom. How could he know that freedom was the last thing Pip wanted...that all she needed was a glance, a word, a touch, and ten years of pain and sorrow could be transformed into a lifetime of love?
