This author's writing is quite different than what we normally see in a romance novel these days. Its almost as if she's trying to be poetic, or flowery. Except instead of drawing a vivid image in your mind like Katherine Woodiwiss's writing, you find yourself getting impatient, bored.

This book has way too many flash backs, very little chemistry or passion between the main characters, and due to the writing style, not very engaging.

Over all, I gave it 2 stars, just because the ending was surpri
didn;t finish - too flowery

J'aime beaucoup Katherine Stone, mais ce coup-ci je suis déçue. Je n'ai pas réussi à apprécier l'histoire et je pense que la traduction n'y est pas étrangère. Après l'avoir fini, j'ai été vérifier et de 432 pages (VO Mass Market Paperback) on passe à 281 pages pour la VF de chez "J'ai lu". Les cinq livres précédents que j'avais lus de cette auteur étaient aussi en français, mais je n'avais jamais ressenti de telles coupures! Un livre à relire en anglais donc.
Despite the fact that Stone's plots are over the top and prose rather flowery (or perhaps because of?), I adore her books. This was another solid read from her. I really enjoyed the characters and the overall storyline. The drama, the romance, the betrayals and acceptance - all of it was well done.
How cow!!! Everybody in the whole book was damaged. It was pretty ridiculous. From heroin mother, throw away babyies, physically injured babies, self absorbed witches (think with a "b"). You have to wonder what kind of life Katherine Stone had. Pretty sick
