Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Brazil, Eduardo de Souza watched in horror as his wife and unborn child's life was taken from him in an instant. The horrific day would always haunt his memory for it not only scarred him mentally but physically. He now lives his life far away from the place where it all happened. He locked away his feelings and heart to live a reclusive life.

Eduardo is drawn out of his misery one day when he was visiting the local town. A street singer's voice managed to touch his frigid heart. The petite girls voice was like the soothing balm his shattered soul craved. He believed her to be homeless, and was surprised when she turned down his generous cash donation.

Marianne Lockwood has suffered her own tragedy. She had married an older man who was terminally ill, and their marriage had only lasted six months. He left her all his worldly possessions. She tries to recover from her loss by becoming more focused on her singing career. She takes to the streets to deliver her melodies to the local town folk. Her plan is to gain enough courage to rebuild her life.

Marianne does not know what to make of Eduardo. His wealth is evident, and she is surprised when he offers a place for her to stay and a job as his housekeeper. With the cold frigid temperatures it is difficult for Marianne to continue singing in the streets. She makes the decision to accept Eduardo's job offer.

Will Marianne's presence under Eduardo's roof change him from a man who has shut out the world to one that wishes to live for the future? Or will she find that Eduardo's past experience has left an irreparable mark that has scarred his soul inside and out?

The Man Behind the Mask is an exceptional book. Eduardo and Marianne are two complex characters.

Marianne Lockwood does things simply for the love of it, a free spirit, if you will, as she doesn’t seem overly concerned about money. However, she is trying to grow to do a little something more in her life. She wants to overcome a fear that she has. Eduardo believes that she is destitute and he likes to help others, but tries to stay disconnected from people as well. He has his own cross to bear. Eduardo doesn’t want pity which he views Marianne’s compassion as, but he also feels drawn to her.

This one wasn’t overly angsty and I enjoyed that both Eduardo and Marianne seemed like more of your everyday people. Sure Eduardo had money and Marianne walked away from what she could have fought for, but in the end that were normal people. Sure Marianne had a past that not most women would go in to w/ good intentions….but it worked for this story :/ I didn’t like that Eduardo’s past ex had to be maligned slightly, and made to be the fall guy. But overall the story was interesting, just not overly engaging almost chicken soupy for the soul :)

The man was a jerk. Everyone knows emotions change all the time, that is why you have to work at a marriage to make it last.
