Ya know, I get why people like Carolyn Davidson's writing, but I just can't seem to connect with it. The Midwife was the first book I read of Davidson's, and while I liked that one a lot more than this one, there was that same sense of emotional detachment. The characters say and do things that never have any satisfying resolution, and the reader is then left wondering what the hell the point was.

Carolyn Davidson is in top form in this book, giving us an irascible alpha male and a woman who is strong enough to take him on. There's not as much action as some of her other books, but she makes up for it with the steamy sex scenes.

Bueno, es tierna la historia, aunque la personalidad de la protagonista me parece muy sumisa :/ No tiene mucho temperamento o al menos así como las que prefiero leer pero en general me gustó muchisimo :)

The Forever Man, Carolyn Davidson, Harlequin Historical #385
It is reading for adults. It is set in the earlier part of the century before the automobile, and
it's setting is in the rural area. It involves the relationship of a man, his two children and a single woman whom he marries, and how the five of them deals with life as a family. Being a Harlequin book you can expect a good deal of romance. The author handles it interestingly. Throughout the story their individual pasts are slowly brought
This was good but not as good as Redemption.

I kept waiting for something MORE to happen. For there to be some BIG DRAMA. And while there were some secrets and some very low-key angst, the problems were all more typical marriage problems - Hey! You spent $$$ without talking to me first or Hmm. Your older son is having some problems adjusting to his new step-mother.

Tate's just a damn good man and it takes Jo a while to really trust him. She does trust him from the beginning but she keeps waiting

Carolyn Davidson began writing in 1986, knowing absolutely nothing about the craft. Her first three books were rejected by Harlequin.

She met Dixie Browning at a Harlequin dinner in Charleston, South Carolina, and told Dixie she was writing, but that she feared she was too old to begin such an undertaking. Dixie's response spurred Carolyn to pursue her dream. Dixie said, in her own inimitable fashi

“The burden of grief she had carried with her to the hillside earlier was gone, vanquished by the storm of his loving. She’d left it amid the fallen leaves of autumn, beneath the scattering of winter snow that covered three graves. She’d buried it beneath the frozen ground that held prisoner the body of the baby boy she’d borne and buried by herself.” 0 likes
“Jo…” It was a whisper, a pleading, needful sound that was almost her undoing. “Jo? I can’t stand to see you this way. I know you’re angry with me, but I need to set things right between us.” 0 likes
