Why was Conrad so hostile toward her?
Once Christabel had thought he was the man with whom she'd spend her life--he had been far from indifferent to her on that brief holiday in England. Yet he had made their parting final.

But it seemed their destinies were entwined. She had traveled around the world to comfort the children her flighty selfish sister had left behind, only t

I want to like oldies by Essie Summers. The synopsis sounds good but I just don't like her writing style. I feel like I'm taking a class and am listening to a lecture on history, geology, flora/fauna or poetry. It's interesting info but not what I'm looking for in a romance.

This is one of those stories of being judged for the sins of your sibling or in this case your half sibling. I could not help remember this wonderful quote by Einstein while reading this book, " Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of truth and knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods." The book is a wonderful read.

When I first saw the Lord of the Rings movies, and saw all those gorgeous, panoramic shots of the New Zealand landscape, my first thought was, "So this is what Essie Summers was talking about."

Essie Summers wrote for Harlequin Romance from the 1950's all the way through the 1990's (a career to envy!), and even if some of her romances (like this one) started in England, all of her heroines made it to New Zealand by the end. And Summers' descriptions of her native land made me fall in love with it

WRitten nearly twenty years after the linked book, South to Forget, this is a sweet and emotional read. Christabel goes out to New Zealand to fix up the mess her half-sister, Lisa, has made of her second marriage. She has recently had her own disappointment in love, a holiday romance with a charming New Zealander who turns out to be a well known writer of thrillers.

When she arrives in New Zealand, the first person she meets is Lisa's brother-in-law Conrad Josefsen, the man who broke her heart wh
