This is my first Fiona McIntosh book and from what I understand, she writes a lot of historical fiction. I loved the idea of this one: a soldier wakes up in a hospital with no memory - he doesn't know his name, where he was rescued from, or where he belongs. He grows more and more melancholy as days go by and no one comes to "claim" him. Along comes Eden Valentine, who with the tap of her high heels, brings a way of escape.

I wanted to like this story more than I did, but the way the memory loss is depicted throughout the book, I just couldn't help but grimace at times. I know this is just a story, and that's why I battled to put aside the eye-roll, clichéd moments and enjoy it for what it is - a beautifully written breathtaking story of love that overcomes tragedy.
