I was deeply impressed by the depth of emotion convened in this story. I was also amazed at how life-like both Sophie & Grayson were. This story made me feel there angers, as well as there happiness.

In the future I will not hesitate to pick up another Linda Francis Lee book. I'm also quite saddened that her books aren't more well known.

I Found this book to be totally satisfying from start to finish.
I actually started this book last night. It was fabulous. Both had cared for each other since they were kids. As adults, they've both been through a lot. They both need some love and healing. This book took place in America in the 1890s. I thought it was a refreshing change of scenery.
Unfortunately, I didn't connect with the characters. I felt that they were one-dimensional. Also, the contemporary dialogue jarred me from the story's time period of the late 1800s. I'm sorry to say that I didn't enjoy this book very much.

This was the first one of Linda Francis Lee I'd read. I remember loving it so much. And while it was wonderful the second time around, after reading the two stories back to back, I love the first one more.
Beautiful. Somewhat endearingly awkward, but beautiful and I just love the music.
Sequel to Dove's Way, following the older brother. Also a good beach book.
