Ok if you don't look to deep...
on October 8, 2011
The story is a good one: a woman recovering from a violent life in a horrible marriage meets a kind and understanding man who helps her on the road to getting her life back. If you are looking for a quick read, this is a good one, it offers some realistic aspects, without getting bogged down with all of the real entanglements that go along with recovering from trauma.
The heroine is also "less that perfect" with scars physically and emotionally, but she is an inspriring woman with a desire to overcome her past. The hero is strong, struggling with his own past (not poor choices on his part, but rather what fate dealt to him in life) and helping the heroine regain her sense of self. The hero's past plays such a key role in the story that I think it should have been revealed sooner to help the reader understand his motivations.
Secondary characters are well developed for a short story, playing key roles in the story.
If you want a deep story that covers the nitty-gritty aspects of recovery from domestic violence, this is probably not the book for you. If you are looking for a good read with a moderate dose of reality, a heroine who isn't "perfect" and a little bit of inspiration, you will probably enjoy Night Angel.
