his is one of them.Because of how much I hated the nove, this is th moderatel long review.
If you intend to understan why, keep reading.Laura Kinsale just does n't write enough books for me.
I wasn ’ t going to write him off just yet.With Laura Kinsale, you don ’ t just get an entertaining romance.
I wante some identification with her as a person of faith, but at the same time, I sai that she gives people of faith a bad name because of her legalistic and judgmental way of life.
It was hurtful how she denied the love she felt for Jervaulx, as if it was an ugly thing.
It hurt me to read because I ca see deep down that Jervaulx needed her so much, and she needed him, and loving someone can be intense and powerful ( and yes, inconvenient) without being an obsession or leading to doom and destruction.
In his own way, he did believe in God, but seeing faith in such an ugly way pushed him further away from God and into th life that didn ’ t have much meaning outside of his scientific pursuits.
She didn ’ t appear to get what it was like to be him, to realize that he as one step away from being trappe in an asylum for the est of his life.
The scenes between Maddy and Jervaulx where their feelings are budding, blooming and coming to full life were the essence of romance.
It ’ s what makes my heart beat fast when I read romance books.
While Jervaulx and Maddy didn ’ t make sense to someone on the outside looking in, who lacked insight, it makes perfect sense to me.I put this book off for a ong time, but it as a case of reading it at exactly the right time.
I have been going through a horrible book slump, feeling apathetic about reading.
