“I received this book from Book Sneeze/Thomas Nelson for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are my own”
Dianna Brennan came west on the orphan train and was given a home with a loving couple who cherished and spoiled her. At 17, she fell hard for Tyson Applegate, the son of a wealthy mine owner. After a whirlwind courtship and marriage, Tyson took off for adventures around the world, including fighting with the Rough Riders in Cuba. Receiving no word from him in years, Dianna is ready to move past the old pain and marry again, just as soon as Tyson is declared legally dead.
But when Tyson returns, supposedly a changed man, he wants to reunite with his wife and run for senate. While Dianna suspects the election is his real reason for wanting her by his side, she agrees to maintain his home and to campaign with him, but when it is over, win or lose, she wants her freedom.
He agrees with one condition–she must give him a chance to change her mind about him.
This book was a very interesting read. I enjoyed the “clips of the past” that were at the end of every chapter and I loved how it was written. The main characters were very realistic and all had believable reasons for acting the way they did or the decisions they made, good or bad.
The way Robin Hatcher wrote the characters and had them change completely by the end of the story was very enjoyable. Whether for good or bad, most of the characters were different in the last page. Although there was not much action in this book, it still had some tense parts when dealing with the “bad guy”.
Filled with Christian morals, I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good story about “the man who learned better”!
