Georgina Guthrie is an author whose books I would pre-order without a second thought – without a title, a cover, or a synopsis – with only the promise of a new story or a revisit of an older one. The Weight of Words, Better Deeds Than Words, and The Truest of Words left readers wanting more; not only more of this particular series and its characters, but more of anything Georgina chooses to write. The moment I knew there would be a sequel, written from Daniel’s point of view, my heart literally leapt. The Record of My Heart would be an amazing book in any context, but it is the ultimate companion to the series. I highly recommend that you read the complete trilogy first, if you have not already done so, but if you are a fan of the series, stop reading this and just buy it -- now.
Daniel Grant is one of the most beautifully complex romantic characters in contemporary adult romance, and therefore one of the most compelling, unforgettable fictional lovers you will ever encounter. In The Record of My Heart, he expresses his all-consuming love for Aubrey Price through letters and journal entries that he writes and saves to share with her at just the right time - whenever that may be. They begin at the beginning - the fateful day they met, and continue until ... well, you will have to read that for yourself.
Daniel's words are always carefully chosen, as only a passionate soul mate, an ardent lover, and a teacher of great literature would compose. Often funny and self-deprecating, other times poignant and painful, they are always full of a passion and tenderness that will take your breath away. Daniel's words are truly a window to his soul, and he lays his soul completely bare along this very private journey. He is the ultimate fantasy, and theirs is the ultimate love story -- the one that draws us to romantic literature in the first place, and keeps us coming back for more.
If it were possible, I'd give this series an infinite number of stars, but since it is not, I have to say that five will never be enough. And, although the letters are intended as the most deeply personal of all gifts to his one true love, in truth they are a gift to romantic readers and literature lovers everywhere.
Thank you, Ms. Guthrie, for taking us back to the story and bringing it to such an incredible conclusion.
When I started reading The Words series, it was Aubrey who I admired more than Daniel. I’ve always thought that Aubrey was the better character, strong, out spoken and very intelligent. But in the Record of My Heart, I see more of Daniel as he tumbled head first into love.
And what a tumble it was.
I actually felt like I fell along with him, journeying again through the different stages of their courtship. Through his writing, we get to see how truly intelligent and witty he is. Daniel’s love for Aubrey is sweet and sentimental, pure and raw. There are times where it becomes doubtful, silly and (very characteristically Daniel) neurotic. But as Daniel comes to terms with it, his love is undoubtedly absolute and real.
The Record of My Heart is such a wonderful read, and a true companion to The Words Series. I’ve always felt that the three earlier books needed more of Daniel’s point of view so this was very much welcomed. It does not rehash the previous events of the other books, and Daniel’s thoughts give a fresh point of view.
I will always love Daniel and Aubrey’s story but I would like to apologize to Daniel for two things: first, for being a spectator in their lives once again and second, for seeing it through his heart. But I firmly believe that it would be wrong to deprive the world of a love so beautiful as theirs, with words as true as his.
Inspired by a group of letters that his Grandfather wrote for Patty, Daniel decides to pen his own series of love letters and journals as he waits for the time he and Aubrey can be together.
During this process, he relates his affection for Poppet to various works of Shakespeare and Keats. Highlights for me included Henry VIII as he pined for Anne Boleyn...
“...absence gives enough, and more than I ever thought could be felt...”
Then there was John Keats and as Sailor describes “his epic love letters to Fanny Brawne. His affection for her turned him into a lovesick wretch” I love that Daniel associates with this and further more...
“I cannot exist without you – I am forgetful of everything but seeing you again-my life seems to stop there- I see no further...
...My creed is love and you are its only tenet-you have ravish’d me away by a power I cannot resist.”
So tell me you’re not swooning now!!
If you’re not... I don’t believe you.
There are many more passages I’d love to quote to you, but I think you deserve to read Daniel’s musings for yourself. I will however, point you to my favourite journal entry which is Wednesday April 22. What a total sweetheart! Daniel...I think I love you!
After reading the whole Words series, the ending of ‘The Record of My Heart’ is just wonderful. I loved it and by then I was a blubbering mess. I can only imagine that Aubrey would have been exactly the same way.
Thank you Georgina Guthrie, for your wonderful words. You take your readers on a delightful journey and leave us with sense of hope that real gentlemen DO exist as well as good old fashioned romance.
