“I want you. I need you.” “She and Antony were two pieces in a classic puzzle, fitting together in a timeless way.”
After Simon and Sadie’s marriage, Cynthia and her father, Donald, decided it was time to sell their home and business in Montreal and move to the West Coast and be closer to Sadie. Making the trip to Vancouver Island, they find and purchase the perfect 1940s coastal home. What a shock for Donald to die in his sleep before the move, but now Cynthia needs to be closer to Sadie and new beginnings.
Antony Jacobson has never felt about another woman, including his two ex-wives, as he does towards Cynthia Donohue. He even went to Montreal and visited with her and Donald getting to know them better. When Donald dies, once again, Antony will drop everything and be the rock for Cynthia to lean on and help her during this difficult time.
The plot will have Cynthia with her movie to Vancouver Island, sans her father, and not feel well. She was in a bad automobile accident the year before and had a concussion and hurt her back, and assumes it is just from her previous accident. Antony Jacobson has placed his ranch on the market and is determined to be wherever Cynthia calls home. He will show up in Vancouver Island and assist her with the closing, clean up and preparations for the movers. Their time together quickly escalates to an intimate relationship.
Antony is dominant, just like Simon, and learns quickly that Cynthia’s independence and stubbornness are her worse enemy. He will lay down some rules, including forcing her to tend to her health. When she pushes, he pushes back by giving her a spanking and letting her know this will become the new way of life for them. There can only be one head of household in their relationship, and it will be him. For the first time in her adult life, she feels like she has someone that honestly cares about her and her well-being.
What will happen when Cynthia is given devastating news about why she is so tired and in pain? She and Antony are just making plans for a life together, can she keep this secret from him? When he learns the news, will he leave her, or once again, become her rock? Anger, bitterness, hurt, lack of trust, and deceit will cause pain, but with love, faith, trust, and discipline, forgiveness will clear the slate and allow them to move towards their future together.
“Life is full of tsunamis.” “Whatever life throws at us, bad times shared are bad times halved. Good times shared are good times doubled.”
“And, as the song says, there ain’t no cure for love either. I’ll never get enough of you. Don’t worry. I will always be here to catch you.”
Seriously, if I weren’t already in love with Libby Campbell, this book would do me in for sure!
Holding Cynthia is kind of a spin-off from the Simon Says series. It’s the story of Sadie’s mother and how she finds love late in her life.
It’s a warm and heartfelt story of never giving up hope about finding love, no matter your age ( thank you, Libby)
Cynthia Donohue is, after Sadie, her only daughter, married Simon, moving closer to them, that means she is moving across the country and starting all over again. She is not alone though because Simon’s uncle, Antony Jacobson, who she met at the wedding, is moving as well. He has set his eyes on her and is falling more and more in love with her.
Cynthia is a strong and independent woman, but as her relationship with Antony grows deeper, she realizes that she needs him to take care of her. His very hands on way of taking care of her. She has trouble living by his rules because she is so used to taking care of others. But Antony is set on making her trust him to take care of her, and that gives her several red behinds.
When Cynthia’s world fall apart because of health problems, Antony is there to support her and take care of her, even though she tries to hide it from him. But you don’t hide things from a man like Antony unpunished.
Libby Campbell blew me away with Holding Cynthia. It is so beautifully written that it almost made my heart stop beating. She plays with the words most delightfully and elegantly, and her insight is just incredible.
Her characters are real and developed, and I felt like I was in the middle of it all.
It was such a relief to read about a couple in their late fifties and not always only concentrating on young love.
Thank you, Libby Campbell, for this inspiring and perfectly executed advanced copy.
