Dobrovolně bych si knihu tohoto formátu určitě nevybrala. Ale tyjo! To bylo tak čtivé, že i učení na zkoušky šlo stranou :D
Konec byl sice trošku pomalejší a zápletka nepřirozeně vyšroubovaná, ale byla to skvělá oddychovka. Chápu, proč si tyhle knihy některé ženy kupují.

TBH I love the main couple's story but their son's love story had me feeling so uncomfortable that I skimmed it most if the time.
This is a historical western and I really wanted to like this book, but the two main characters needed to grow the heck up. The constant bickering was horrible and I had to struggle just to finish this book.

The whole story line was awful for me. What mother abandons her 8 year old son and husband? They were both selfish, pigheaded and spoiled. She returns 12 years later for a divorce. BIG thumbs down from This Reader.

Shelves: historical
Story about a woman who leaves her family because she doesn't feel loved and wanted. She thought the hero would come after her but 12 years go by. She goes back to home and wants a divorce. The story worked because the couple learned to communicate.

I can't remember who recommended this book to me. I found out there are several with this title. Obviously, this wasn't the right one. :-(

Slow moving. Not as good as Linda's later books.
