Judith Raxten's THE SECRET DREAMS OF EMILY PORTER is an inspiring romance story, filled with love in an epic proportion within the heroine's lifetime, touched by sadness, and with an added touch of the supernatural.

Emily Porter never really had confidence in herself. She thought she was dumpy ---not one of those babes with the perfect make-up. She is an artist. Her former husband was abusive and she is a hesitant to fall in love again and feel controlled and trapped again. Then, she meets Ethan Douglas ---in the most humorous situation that had me laughing audibly! He is nothing like her first husband. Rather than controlling her, Emily is set free..set free to shine as her real self, set free to do her art, set free to have a true home. Ethan dies suddenly. Left alone in their isolated cottage on the Maine coast, Emily grieves but then she realizes she is not really alone. Next to her she feels a presence --- a breeze, the touched piano keys, the touch, memory, dream or ghost? In the ashes of her grief, can Emily's heart be set free to love again?

THE SECRET DREAMS OF EMILY PORTER is another beautiful romance read from the Harlequin Everlasting Love line and one of my favorites in this particular line. I started this romance and did not put it down. I was reading at warp speed because I was so entranced by the characters, their stories and the beautiful imagery. Judith Raxten hooked me from the beginning with a very humorous scene, gently revealing layer and layer of depth in the characters and the plot. Images began to resonate, adding layer and layer of beauty and also intrigue, not like suspense intrigue, but a gentle ever increasing curiosity.

I read this item as an ebook from my public library, and I started it when I was already feeling blue. A MISTAKE, as I started crying about a third of the way in and didn't stop until finished. A tearjerker and a half, and I woke up all puffy eyed. So beware!

I find myself drawn to romances where there is a paranormal element. In this love story set in Maine, Emily Porter grieves for the loss of her second husband, but gradually realizes that he is still there to comfort her.
