This is a story of sublime beauty. For the past six years Ben and Samantha suffered the ravages of the Peninsular War. Ben, whose legs had been smashed, had spent that painful time in grim determination to walk again. Samantha, now widowed, had devoted those years to nursing her wounded husband.

Having lost his military career, Ben was searching for a purpose in life. Visiting his sister on a neighboring estate before beginning some aimless travels, Ben and Samantha meet. While there is an attraction between them, their relationship is amicable but distant. Until, that is, Samantha learns she is to be immediately forced to again live with her tyrannical and oppressive in-laws. Desperately seeking the comfort of her friend, Ben's sister, she finds Ben instead.

While agonizing over her prospects, Samantha remembers her mother having briefly mentioned a cottage in western Wales that had been willed to her, whereupon Samantha decides she must immediately set forth toward that cottage, her only sanctuary. Ben, a perfect gentleman, is horrified by the prospect of her traveling alone and unprotected, and insists that he accompany her. Thus begins the escape.

The journey had an almost dreamlike quality to it. It was during this journey that time briefly stood still..."The world had stopped and they had stepped off."

What followed was a beautiful development of deepening friendship. They had fun; they enjoyed each other. Samantha was sunny, kind, intuitive, and innocently pragmatic. Ben was thoughtful, protective, kind, and with a sly sense of humor. Their friendship then gently unfolded into a profound love.

Exquisite writing! Exquisite story! Such a joy to read! Every word was a pleasure.

This book is much better than the preceding two and is the kind of Mary Balogh writing I love. These are GROWN-UPS! Neither Benedict nor Samantha are hysterical, whiney, self pitying, or dumb. They don't make assumptions about each other without asking questions to test the accuracy of their assumptions (those erroneous assumptions are at the heart of too many hysteria driven romance novels which would have no plot at all if the people involved actually talked to each other.) They both face challenges and they recognize what they must do to overcome them. Balogh's best couples do talk to each other, a lot. They converse, argue, tease, laugh, disagree, get angry and make up - in short they actually get to know each other before they make life long commitments. They approach attraction and sex like the normal human activities they are, expressive of desire, tenderness, affection and mutual pleasure. Its not cosmic. They don't pretend they can't live without each other. They in fact know they can (because real people do) and that they will even recover from the heart break if necessary but fortunately don't have to. No one is trying to kill or kidnap anyone else. Samantha's background is a bit mysterious to her but when she fills in the details it is nothing horrible. My only complaint is that the author seems to need to tie up all the loose ends. John and Matilda were not nice characters and Balogh did not have to redeem them in any way to end the story. That felt rather inauthentic. They disappeared from relevance much earlier in the story and should have stayed there.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
II's been a good week for my Regency collection - only one absolute dud (Cheryl Holt's mis-titled "Wonderful"), and two books actually worth keeping - Grace Burrowes "The Captive" and Mary Balogh's "The Escape".

Ms Balogh has written some of my favourite Regencies ("A Lady with a Black Umbrella", "Beyond the Sunrise”), but she also has a tendency to melancholy which can occasionally produce either a really depressing book, or a book with cardboard characters, so I wasn't sure what I would get when I started. After finishing, however, I believe she has avoided both pitfalls in this book - the main and secondary characters are well crafted, and the story is engaging - so I would give it 4.5 out of 5 on the 'Amazon' scale, and 3 out of 5 on my own scale (where no Regency gets more than 3.5).

"We have something in common, you know," he told her, stopping abruptly before he reached the door. "I want to dance too. Sometimes it is what I want to do more than anything else in life." What the hero does not realize when he tells the heroine this, is how true his words really are. In the third - my favorite so far - book of the Survivor Club series, Mary Balogh brings together two kindred spirits, who, at the time of their meeting, find themselves adrift, facing an uninspiring future.

In her twenty-four years, the heroine has seen little happiness, and the summons from her father-in-law guarantee she will have even less happiness to look forward to for the rest of her life. The hero is at a similar cross-roads, as a middle son, he expected to be a career military officer, instead, as a result of severe injury he has to find a new purpose in life. And when the heroine calls on his sister, looking for someone with whom she might share her miserable news, the hero leaps at the opportunity to be needed, even if he doesn't quite see it that way. And so begins their journey to Wales, during which they first find companionship, then friendship, and, finally, love.

Usually, I don't particularly care for long carriage trip romances, but Mary Balogh turned a tired plot device into a meaningful journey of self-discovery, in which even angst had a serene quality that left me convinced that the pair has a bright future ahead and that their "rebellion" was worth it.
