it was ok
bookshelves: romance

This was a tough book to rate. I wanted to take it as a brainless and even whimsical story...Lady Emily hasn't seen her husband in three years and when she finds him to try to talk him into getting her pregnant, only to discover that he's gone blind and doesn't recognize her.

Here's what I finally realized the problem was: It's hard to take a story as simple and brainless when it deals with serious and complex issues, then treats them very lightly.

This book was just too easy. It was too easy that Adrian didn't recognize his wife, too convenient. It was even unbelievable. And then a week with his "mistress" (actually his wife) was enough to convince him his life was worth living after all, and that he can get along as a blind man. Then when he learned the truth that his mistress and his wife were the same woman, it was again, far too easy.
