Three years later, Luke returns again to London where Hester is a bridesmaid at her best friend Deborah’s wedding. While Luke barely remembers the young virgin from three years ago, he befriends her when her dress is ruined. What neither expects is the consequences of his actions, when they are forced to marry to keep her integrity.
DEEP IN MY HEART is a novel worthy of reading. Gwendoline Ewins was a new author to this reader, but will be put on her must seek out more titles list. She is a self-published author, yet her work is polished and shines beyond what was expected. I fell in love with Hester and Luke. Both are exceptional characters who fall into a category all their own. Ms. Ewins has taken the classic tale of a woman who through no fault of her own loses her “virgin status” and gives it twists and turns to make it a true romance. These main characters are supported by secondary characters – that need their own tales. I would love to read more about the friends that travel to the South Seas amongst the tale.
While the story opens in London, most of the scenery is of the South Pacific Seas – a place many of us would love to visit. Taking the scenery back to the 1800’s leaves it unspoiled and pristine, a view that Ms. Ewins brings to life vividly. Her knowledge and research into the past in a land of dreams, made this reader long for the beach and the romance that comes into ones heart.
This is a book to be cherished, a soft, gentle read that will warm your heart.
