Thousands of feet above the ground on a crowded flight to Washington, D.C., radio personality Keely Williams felt the irresistible pull of handsome congressman Dax Devereaux. They were speaking at the same congressional hearing about Vietnam soldiers listed as MIA. Tragica...more
5 stars for the narrator and 4.5 stars for the story
Despite being dated (this was written in the early 80's) I really enjoyed this sweet love story. The narrator is one of my favorites and did an amazing job on the southern accents.
This was one of my first Sandra Brown's novels that I have ever read. And it was because of this book that she has now become one of my ALL-TIME favorite authors! This book was... WOW.
What drew me in, you might ask?
Well first of all, the cover of this edition is so beautiful. I know the golden rule is never to trust a book by its cover, but I'm so happy that I did in that case. Otherwise I never would've discovered how wonderfully talented Ms. Brown is in writing about love, tragedy and hope.
Again, another great Sandra Brown read.
A heart tugging story of a woman not sure is she is a wife or a widow. A story of MIAs and those left behind in an emotional limbo. AND...a love that grows dispite the unknown.
Anyway, i really love Sandra Brown and i hope you read this story and also become a fan.
That was about all I liked about ...more
This author is one of my favorites for decades! Here Keely Preston is confronting a dilemma ... meeting handsome Congressman Dax Devereaux. Sparks fly when they first meet. However, she is in Washington D.C. to speak on a committee to support the families of soldiers missing in action (MIA). One of these soldiers is her husband who has been missing for 12 years. Is he going to be her past love? Can she really move on to living a life with another man? Or... does she not gi ...more
Buku ini entah kenapa bisa ada di lemariku, tapi pas lihat harga belakang 12rb, baru inget aku beli ini pas emang lagi diskonan. Kayaknya sih asal comot karena tahu nama Sandra Brown :D
Ceweknya namanya Keely, dia sudah nikah selama 12 tahun, tapi cuma ngerasain 3 minggu kebersamaan lantaran suaminya Mark harus berangkat ke Vietnam. Sebenarnya alasan mereka nikah ya memang karena Mark mau berangkat perang. Sayangnya nasib berka ...more
Reading the reviews after finishing this I realised that most reviewers were expecting a mystery and were disapointed that this one was all romance. But that is exaxtly what I like, so you won't hear me complain. It's also a little dated which put another group of readers off this book. Well, I was a adult in the 80's s ...more
Kiedy otrzymałam "Prawo do szczęścia" bardzo się ucieszyłam, ponieważ uwielbiam książki Pani Brown. Każda z nich opowiada inną historię i każda jest wyjątkowa, na tej również się nie zawiodłam. Książkę świetnie się czyta, jest intrygująca więc również szybko ją pochłonęłam. Jest to opowieść o trudnych wyborach, poczuciu winy, odpowiedzialności za siebie i drugiego człowieka, wewnętrznej zmianie po ogromnym bólu zarówno fizycznym jak i psychiczn ...more
I did not like the main charcater Keely and her martyism. Keely's husband of a couple of months missing for 12 years and she put her life on hold in case he returns. When she evenutally meet someone she can't do anything and when she has a one night together she feels guilty about it? Come on! I found even the fact that Keely did not want to fly silly with her only reason being that husband was killed (though she wa ...more
I've got to admit I didn't like the story. I think even placed into the "now" time, it'd be boring and at places close to unbelievable with so many coincidences.
Keely's soldier-husband has been missing in action for twelve years. She doesn't know whether he's dead or a ...more
But I read it anyway.
It's a formula romance novel. You either like them or you don't.
Keely's husband is MIA in Vietnam (this is the early 1980s); on a trip to Washington to lobby for continuing benefits for MIA soldiers' families, she meets a hunky Senator, Dax Devereaux. Much passion and guilt and back and forth and "I must never see you again!" mom ...more
Brown, Sandra (aka Laura Jordan, Rachel Ryan, Erin St. Claire)
It happened the way attraction happens best: suddenly, passionately, unforgettably. High above the ground on a crowded flight to Washington, D.C., radio personality Keely Preston felt the irresistible pull of Congressman Dax Devereaux, and nothing would ever be the same.
Definitely not one of my favorites.
