About the Author

Sandra Schwab started writing her first novel when she was seven years old. Twenty-odd years later, telling stories is still her greatest passion, even though by now she has exchanged her pink heart-dotted fountain pen for a computer keyboard (black, no hearts). She lives in a suburb of Frankfurt on the Main, Germany, with a cat, a duck, a sewing machine, and altogether too many books.

(Maybe 3.5 stars) If you've ever read Schwab's The Lily Brand, you know how dark and angsty her books can be. I read that one some time ago and can still remember my general impression of pain and emotional agony the H and h went through.

This long novella (or short book of 170 pages) is less angsty but still has its moments when you're feeling the pain. The general plot is one that has been done time and again, but Schwab's writing, her addition of some European settings in addition to England, and her homage to The Parent Trap (whether the Hayley Mills version The Parent Trap (1961) or the relatively newer one with Lindsay Lohan or, probably more accurately, the German book the movie is based on) make her story better than ordinary.

The hero Ash and heroine Georgina married when very young, in their teens. Madly in love, Ash is devastated when he learns (from his mommy, of course) that his loving wife has been unfaithful to him with his very own cousin. When Georgina gives birth to twin boys, Ash does not even believe that they are his. Georgina, who has sworn she's not been unfaithful but is not believed, runs off with the younger twin, leaving Ash, an earl, with his heir, the older baby, and she is not heard from again.

17 years pass, in which Ash divorces Georgina and raises his son Gareth, training him for his future position as earl but not being a particularly affectionate father.

Perhaps I wouldn't be quite so critical of this book if I had not just finished Pam Rosenthal's wonderful book The Slightest Provocation which had the same basic outline of a marriage ruined by betrayals and the subsequent reconciliation. I thought 9 years was too long to be separated, but that book was so beautifully written that I could overlook the span of years.

The writing in this book is not dreadful, nor is it the best. What this book does is give new definition to `The Big Misunderstanding.' And, for all I never like big misunderstandings that go on for too long, this one lasted 17 years. Worse yet, I couldn't stop my brain from screaming `Stupid, stupid people' and so it was no wonder my heart never got involved. Truly does anyone expect a young mother deeply in love and strong enough to have survived life on her own for 17 years, would have allowed herself to be accused of adultery and not have opened her mouth to set the record straight?? Or that a loving young husband who stood up against his mother's wishes would suddenly side with his mother against his wife - to the extent of divorcing her??

Holes in plot so big you could ride a horse through. Local yokel jailer who could barely speak the king's English coming out with a vocabulary such as, "Mind you, we're not sensationalist like them big prison up in London." Anyone seriously believe the man would utilize a word like `sensationalist'?? The nickname of `Gary' in Regency England??? Does anyone think either boy acts age and/or period appropriate?? Did the big contrast between the Earl's private thoughts (`Oh, Ginny... Ginny') and immediate public denouncements (After all, she coupled with my cousin and then proceeded to steal away) jar anyone?

A rather heartbreaking tale of love lost and found after 17 years. It's painful reading about all the was lost in that seventeen years. I really liked Ginny. There was nothing contrived about how her strength and will to survive was portrayed and her willingness to face the possibility of a new and gentler love with Herr Renner was bittersweet. I usually find myself grudgingly wading through the obligatory scenes of heroines finding a " substitute" for their lost loves however Ginny's friendship with Martin Renner was sweet and rather tender that I actually felt sad about their farewell scene.
As for Ginny and Ash's story, it was heart wrenching how they lost 17 years of being together. The flashbacks, which I usually find annoying, were peppered with scenes showing all that is passionate and laughter-filled young love can be. They are both still so obviously in love with one another. I chuckled but also felt for Ash when he would wait unseen for the sound of Ginny's footsteps. The "grovel" was satisfying without crossing over to cringe-inducing territory. Their twin children were well-drawn characters and I can picture them grown up and still protective of each other and adoring of their mother. Ash will have to do a bit of work to completely win them over but his utter love for the twin's mom should work well in his favor.
Like how in a few paragraphs, Ms. Schwab painted a loving, sexy, and devoted relationship for Guy.
Now for my wish list for this book...would have wanted to see some serious comeuppance for the mother. Forty lashes, maybe? I wanted her to suffer,suffer and suffer some more. And an epilogue where one can read about Ash and Ginny going all PDA much to the smiling disgust of the kids, and Guy and Ash rediscovering being friends again, and Ash&Ginny teasing each other and so on and so forth.
Get this book. I have to sleep now.
