it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-romance, epic-profound, intense, powerful

Another beautifully written, 5 star read! The second installment in TBH series did not disappoint. Granted, much of it was filled with struggle, heartache, and tension, but it did not lack the eternal love and persistent hope generated in the first book. 

The character development was huge, especially in Tatiana's case. She showed a remarkable growth in maturity; so much that, at times, I missed the former, more carefree Tania. I found it difficult to see Tatiana in such a massive state of longing for a large part of the book; she was just existing as time passed her by...But her strength would always prevail, and what she was able to accomplish was admirable. 

Alexander was faced with struggles that no man should ever have to endure, and my heart continued to ache for him. There were a lot of flashbacks in this book, which allowed us to get to know who Alexander was before meeting Tania- all the way back to his not so fortunate childhood. 

This book is a captivating continuation to the astounding relationship of Tatiana and Alexander. To be honest, I wasn't sure how to rate this at first because it caused me so much heartache. But I realized that if something inspires me to the extent in which this book has, whether happy or sad- it warrants five stars all the way!
