But Julianne’s graduate program threatens Gabriel’s plans, as the pressures of being a student become all consuming. When she is given the honor of presenting an academic lecture at Oxford, Gabriel is forced to confront her about the subject of her presentation – research that conflicts with his own. And in Oxford, several individuals from their past appear, including an old nemesis intent on humiliating Julia and exposing one of Gabriel’s darkest secrets.
In an effort to confront his remaining demons, Gabriel begins a quest to discover more about his biological parents, beginning a chain of events that has startling repercussions for himself, Julianne, and his hope of having a family.
The book was excellent, the writing, exquisite. I was immediately drawn into the story with total empathy for everything each character went through. I felt the story very karmic and as I finished the last page, I felt peace. The love between Gabriel and Julia was so fierce and all-consuming. They never, ever stopped fighting for each other and for their love. It is my hope that a love like this truly exists and that someday, I may be able to experience it.
Thank you, Mr. Reynard for giving us this beautiful journey of strength, perseverance, courage, love and hope.
