(1.5 Stars) I'm shocked by all of the positive reviews on this one. Usually I prefer the 80s and early 90s books to today's offerings but this one missed the mark. First of all it was way too LONG. I have no problem with long books but this one dragged on and on unnecessarily. By the time it was over I was so sick of both characters trust issues and misunderstandings that I began skipping and skimming pages. Definitely not on my keeper list.

Read the book when it was published. It was one of my mother's favorites but beyond that I can only remember that I read it
how lame... how can a man sleep with another woman to forget his desire with yet the other woman. that guy is a coward, can not deal with his own feeling and afraid to be rejected. who wants to be with a man like that? well not me.
as if the story not already so lame. now the heroin.... she was almost being rape by her cousin which she didnot like either. her dress being torn and yank by the raper and than the hero came and think the raper and her is going to make love... are you blind?
the worst...more
This was the first historical romance novel I read, hehe
2-3 bintang..

Agak cape baca kisah cinta Sabrina dan Brett di buku ini. 17 tahun dihabiskan dengan kebohongan,prasangka buruk, asumsi, saling menyakiti dan akhirnya happily ever after..hadeeuh -.-

I loved this book could not put down
Well, I give this a 5. Probably to high but the story left me breathless. It dragged on and on and may be a bit too long for others. Also, the trust and misunderstanding issues between the characters will bore you. They love each other but let's the misunderstanding guide the better part of their judgement. I'll still give a high rating because at the end, you'll feel that you've known them all your life. Still a very good read.
I haven't read this in 20 years, but I remember really liking it at the time. However, I don't know if it would hold up to a re-read. I am having problems finding a copy, unfortunately. Busbee's books need to be released in e-form.

Like another reviewer said, I know I read this (I recognize the cover and I went through a Shirlee Busbee spell) but for the life of me I can't remember what the story was actually about.
Definitely read this in middle school. It was probably formative. Whoops.
