I LOVED this book! I read it in only 2 days (before and after work!) and enjoyed every minute of it. I disagree with the review that states the story is too long--it is not. There were moments of laughter and tears throughout--exactly what I look for in a good book--as well as some instances of unexpected horror.

This story of a strong woman "healing" an alpha male included the right amount of romantic tension, complicated peripheral relationships and a truly ruthless, despicable villain.

I was planning to post this book to fulfill someone else's Wish, but alas, I have decided it is a KEEPER.

One of the reviews mentioned the book was made into a movie and I'll be checking that out as soon as possible...

Edgy, Intense Version of "Witness"
This story is an edgier, intense version of "Witness". Rachel struggles with her passion for Johnny and her strict, "Plain" upbringing. I only gave it four and a half stars because I felt that it was about 200 pages too long. There were many places which had too much superfluous information or description that would have been best left out.

I enjoyed this story. A Historical tale of a couple finding each other even though they are from completely different backgrounds. A story of love conquering Adversity.

The story was made into a movie (for TV, I think), and I watched it. The book, as so often happens, is rich with the history and the time and I found it a very enjoyable read.
