Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The nightmares of her past have found Ana Kavanagh an ocean away.

Ana Kavanagh's memories of Ireland are mostly of fire and pain. As a girl she survived a blaze that left her an orphan, left her scarred, and left her angry at God. Now in New York, Ana finds a kindred spirit in Eoghan Hamilton, who's struggling with his own anger. His twin sister, Cara, betrayed him by falling in love with his enemy.

Cast aside by everyone, Eoghan hopes to rejoin the Fenians, an organization pushing for change back in Ireland, by securing information against Rourke, the man his sister married. Ana, Cara's friend, may be his best source, and despite the attraction he feels, Eoghan determines to use the girl's sweet nature to his advantage.

Adding to the danger is a specter from Eoghan's own past, one whose thirst for vengeance knows no bounds. Eoghan must choose which road to follow--bitterness or forgiveness--and where to finally place his trust.

"Ludwig's research on Ireland and New York, along with research on immigrants, shows in this exciting story." --RT Book Reviews

Ana Kavannagh still has nightmares from the fire that claimed the lives of her mother and sister and left her scarred. She also feels abandoned by God. Living in a boardinghouse, Ana has built a new life for herself. She doesn't know that people from her past in Ireland want her dead. Eoghan Hamilton feels betrayed by his twin sister Cara for marrying his enemy. Working as a handyman at a church, he meets Ana. The lovely young woman stirs up his protective instincts. Even when she asks him to do the unbelievable - forgive his sister, he wants to please her. Yet when information comes to him that puts both himself and Ana in danger, he's willing to do anything he can to see her safe, including meeting with the brother-in-law he doesn't trust. Can these two troubled hearts find freedom and love together?

I've got to say that I enjoyed this book WAY more than the first one, No Safe Harbor. In the first one, I found myself rather bored with it. Not so with this one. This one captured my attention from the beginning and held it til the last page.

I really loved Eoghan in this book. I thought that he was a sweetheart and loved how even though he didn't intend to remain at the church, he found he couldn't resist the nuns. I also loved the way that he struggled with accepting his brother-in-law and forgiving his sister for marrying a man he considered an enemy.

The suspense in this book seemed more entwined throughout the story as opposed to the first book. While you don't have to read the first one first, it does help some.

I read this book for pure pleasure. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Recommended to fans of historical suspense, Jody Hedlund, Carol Cox

Format: Paperback
Ana, an Irish woman, came to America as a very young girl at the persuasion of a priest. He had her change her name and had another priest to pick her up once she got here. He was afraid for her life. She has overcome this harsh start in New York, working for a candle maker shop where she is very gifted. She even starts volunteering at a local mission run by the Catholic church. Although she gave up on God when she lost her entire family, she starts seeing His work around her.

Eaghon is also from Ireland. He has run for his life as well, and when he meet Ana he struggles with his heart to not fall for her. He becomes entangled with the political group that he was so strongly involved with in Ireland and does a lot of soul searching while carrying out their work. As well as finding his sister and deciding if he can trust her and her husband, as her husband's family is Eaghon's enemy.

This book is a fast paced novel full of suspense as danger keeps cropping up threatening their lives. Love denied is a theme throughout the book. Forgiveness and acceptance is also something a few of the characters struggle with. And finally, understanding a little bit more about God's love, and His presence in times of tragedy.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I loved the romance, and the mystery was very intriguing. I have to admit, I also love reading about this time period. I believe Elizabeth captured the heart of these characters exquisitely and look forward to reading more of her books.

This book was fantastic. I finished the first one a few days ago and couldn't wait to dive into this one. It picked up shortly after No Safe Harbor ended. And I liked that book, but I LOVED this one. We got to read Ana's story and learn more about her background before coming to America, something we only got a snippet of in No Safe Harbor. This one is romantic suspense at its best, and I can't wait to see what happens next!

Eoghan.......took me forever to learn to pronounce it, but there were lots of practice as he is a main character. A setting long ago when America and New York were just beginning the long trek to where we are now. Intriguing characters, suspense, romance, and a overall good mystery. The author weaves a story that pulls you into life when it wasn't easy add to that someone trying to murder you and you have it a delightful tale that will keep your interest from first to last page. I had read book one and the knowledge of what had previously go e one just added a little more depth. Could be read as a stand alone story but I intend to buy the next one to finish the series. Tell you anything? Buy it

After finishing book one, I couldn't wait to start this volume and read about everyone from book 1 and now I cannot wait to read book 3 to see how this story gets resolved. I enjoy the characters and the different potential double crosses going on in the story.
