First and foremost this is a series romance written in the the early eighties. So when I give it a 5 star rating I am keeping that information in mind. I am an avid reader of all kinds of romance and have been reading series romance for decades (think Betty Neels). When I first read this book I knew I was reading a future star author. I have and have read all of Debbie M. series romances. Out of all of them, this is probably one of the ones I reread on a regular basis. Being raised with a sibling that is severely hearing impaired, I love to read about heroes and heroines that have a handicap. And back in the early eighties there weren't a lot of authors writing where the main character was handicapped(enter Catherine Anderson in the 1990's). I thought Debbie wrote beautifully about the inner turmoil that Rand had with being blind. Her secondary characters are memorable (you gotta love the father!) and add texture to the story.

I love reading series romances and this is definitely a keeper. If you were to read this book and compare it to Debbie's recent full length books then you miss the beauty of this book and miss seeing the beauty of Debbie's journey as a writer.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm a Debbie Macomber fan, so I was surprised at how poorly written this book was. The characters -- particularly the male protagonist ("Rand Prescott" -- the name itself gives you some idea of how shallow and trite the writing is) are unsympathetic and, in "Rand's" case, thoroughly unlikeable. The plot is unbelievable to the point of being laughable at times, and the writing so formulaic that it seems to have been written in a few weeks, at best. Worst of all, the book is almost demeaning to women, as "Rand's" outrageously chauvanistic and downright cruel behavior towards "Karen" is meekly accepted and rationalized. Debbie Macomber wrote this in 1983, nearly 30 years ago, so this was obviously an early attempt. It's great to see how much her writing has improved over the years and how successful she's become.

A horrible and formulaic story, written almost entirely in awful cliches. I have very rarely stopped reading a book without having finished it, but I simply couldn't stomach this one.

Generally, I enjoy Debbie Macomber's novels but the hero in this one, Rand, was extremely chauvinistic. I couldn't believe how badly he treated Karen and how often she just accepted it. She should have made him treat her better or left him.

This story is not a happy, joy filled romance. Lead male is slowly going blind from childhood infection. He carries a lot of emotional baggage. Lead female falls in love and her father forces him to marry her by threatening his employment. She has no knowledge of her father's machinations. They find themselves pregnant and he never wanted children. So you have a couple married under duress, baby on the way and of course, his assistant wants him for herself. Drag-you-down drama.

Believable characters, depressing dialogue and story line.

I will not re-read this story. I do look forward to other works by this author.

The plot of the story is intriguing. A Professor who falls for a much younger woman but that's the not the only challenge. Randall or Rand as he is called is partial blind and will be totally blind soon. The heroine Karen is immediately taken with him the first time she meets him at her godfather's Christmas party. The book main theme is Rand not wanting to love Karen and keeps pushing her away. Though he loves her he does not want to marry because of his blindness. Not a bad storyline just concerned that the author made Rand extremely mean even when Karen was expecting their babies. He only redeemed himself in the last few pages of the book.

Wonderfully written debut novel by Debbie Macomber. I'm very glad that it was rereleased in eBook format.

This was a very enjoyable romance. There were the normal aspects of a romance. The main characters met, fell in love, then they had problems arise, that made them doubt each other, to overcome before reaching their happily ever after. This particular romance had some different problems that I had never run into before which made it more of an entertaining read for me.

This is my second time to read this story & I enjoyed just as much this time as I did the first time.

Falling in love is sometimes so much easier than being able to make things work. We do no always recognize our need for another's acceptance until it is almost too late to do something about it. Being able to share the ups and downs of every day life can be very trying, but if we keep trying things usually turn out for the best which this story showed.
