's review

it was amazing

As someone who was raised around and on farms and ranches I

loved how different this book was from the other power of the

matchmaker books.Giving a different prespective and adding a

sweet farm girl lifestyle where you also have to be grown up at

a young age as there is much to do. Loved this book.

This book was a very different read from the other books in

series, from the completely different era set in the early dawn

of WWII in the English hills on a sheep farm, to a personal

journal style recounting of events.

Eve is what I would expect of her character, but the more you

get a look into the inner workings of her rather complex mind,

the more you discover there is so much more to her than just an

English farm girl. She has this soft, yet very strong-willed

personality, set in an era where woman don’t always have the

luxury of having an own opinion and say in every matter. She is

grown up in so many ways, taking care of the farm, and the men

living on it, yet she is so young and inexperienced in matters

of the heart. She longs to feel loved and wanted, but is so

unfamiliar how to go about it all.

Then she is thrown in an engagement that she thought she always

wanted, and feeling all kinds of feelings she’s not quite

familiar with for Alan, when Jonathan Doran comes along and

throws a spanner in the works. Poor Eve is torn in two trying to

understand her feelings, and fighting to feel the ones she

thinks are the right ones for the right man, when for us as

readers it is all so very clear what she must do, and where her

heart truly lies.

My heart went out to Alan. He is such a sweet, loyal guy,

clearly not the perfect fit for Eve, but such a kind and loving

guy under his very few words and very down to business exterior.

Somewhere in my mind I could connect to him, even though I feel

we have absolutely nothing in common.

All in all, a good read, a nice change from what I am used to

reading, and a nice addition to the series.
