Claire finds a badly beaten man lying on the roadside and rescues him. Sepp had been born into an isolated religious community that had been morphed into a cult by outsiders who came in and took over the community. He protested some of their actions and was shunned and beaten and then left naked on the roadside to die until Claire stumbled upon him.
Romance soon blooms as he recovers and after she shows him how to use the phone book and her computer and the phone book he finds other men who have left or been driven from the cult. They band together to help their families and friends back in the community throw off the yoke of oppression the cult leaders have placed them under.
Claire and Sepp are a very appealing pair of lovers and the secondary characters are interesting and appealing in their own right. All in all, it's a very satisfying book.
These are sweet characters who feel an instant connection in spite of their differences and are a bit carried away due to their longing for intimacy. Yet considering that each has been alone for so many years it's understandable that they might seize the day and try to find happiness. Obviously an old-fashioned man like Sepp would then see marriage as the ultimate outcome.
But this isn't just a steamy romance novel with a happy ending. There is an interesting balance in the book between the values of the modern world versus those who want to remain separate. Religion is discussed at length in terms of morality, kindness, honesty, and sexual expression.Read more ›
I really did enjoy this book. Thea J. Nilsson has a compelling writing style, and she'd leave bits of information or questions to peak my interest as I was going along. Now, there were parts of this book that I didn't personally feel comfortable with, but the point of this book was to show how a man who was in a restricted religious environment his entire life will view the more lenient culture that we are familiar with. Though this is fiction, it does mirror society as it currently is so it is a realistic piece of fiction. The reality is that we deal with social issues that are highly debated, and even if we don't necessarily agree with those issues, they are important to address if Sepp is to fully understand and appreciate the differences between his old culture and his new one.
I do believe this story deserves five stars. It is well-written and highly entertaining. Thea J.Read more ›

The story was pretty decent over all. The problem I had is that it wasn't smooth going. I wish it had been a smoother read all around but the ending was good:)Published on March 25, 2013 by Amazon Customer
It could have been a great, but... It was horribly written. There are things that are better left inferred and not written out. Read morePublished on March 19, 2013 by opl
I call all my reviews "an honest review" because unlike so many reviewers these days it seems, I do not receive anything of value, including free books, for writing them. Read morePublished on March 4, 2013 by Talos IV
