SOMEWHERE MY LOVE introduces us to Julia Morrow, an English girl on summer break, who has arranged to work as a tour guide at Foxleigh, a historical home situated along the James River in Virginia. During her introductory tour, Julia learns that Foxleigh has been home to the Wentworth family for eight generations and is now managed by William Wentworth. But Julia is stunned to see that William bears a striking resemblance to an old portrait of Cole Wentworth, a handsome man pictured in his late twenties. Drawn to the portrait of Cole, Julia is overwhelmed by feelings that she somehow knows Will, even Cole... but can't explain it.
There's definitely something about Julia, and Will wonders if the decision to have her work and live at the house for the summer was a mistake. Not only does she boggle his mind with her innocent charm, but her inexplicable admiration for Cole truly makes him wonder if she's cuckoo for cocoa puffs. After all, Cole's been dead two hundred years. But when Julia's dreams become vivid and Will starts recalling memories that place him in Cole's shoes--err, boots--so many years ago, comparing notes may help them discover the truth of what really happened on the fateful night of Cole's death. But could it be that the events that happened so long ago may foretell events still yet to come? And is it possible that a love from the past could get a second chance to live in the present?
SOMEWHERE MY LOVE weaves a beautiful historical romance with a contemporary story creating a mystery with a pleasant dash of the paranormal. Catch all that?Read more ›
I thought the book well-written and well-paced, and Ms. Trissel expertly built the story's suspense to a dramatic and climactic ending (and while late in the story I thought I knew the identity of the murderer, I could not be sure until the very end.) The tender, haunting scenes from Cole and Julia's past were pure magic. The descriptions of the Foxleigh house and grounds were visually stunning. I wished I could go there to live for a while.
As for the negative feedback about Julia as a helpless female, I must disagree. We live in a day when ridiculously superhero females are held up as the norm, and women are expected to be uber everything, but such expectations are both simplistic and unrealistic. While I enjoy a spirited, feisty heroine, I also find heroines from the opposite end of the spectrum just as captivating, as well as refreshing. Julia is ultra-feminine to Will/Cole's healthy masculinity and her gentle, quiet demeanor immediately sparks his protective instincts. That, IMO, is no bad thing in a romance.
I found 'Somewhere My Love' a delightful read, and look forward with anticipation to the next installment in the series.
Since neither Cole nor Julia Maury had children, I find it difficult to accept the main premise -- that their ghosts not only lived on but the modern couple (Will and Julia Morrow) were fated to relive Cole's murder as well as their instantaneous love affair. I don't want to spoil anything but there were two other ghosts and their descendants who were involved in the main murder mystery. Will's grandmother was not a ghost but she might as well have been a 19th century aristocrat because that's how she acted and that's how everyone treated her. I just wasn't able to accept the storyline because, among other things, there was simply no reason given why the events in the past were unique enough to cause a replay in the present.
I found the language used was excessively flowery with talk of the love between Will and Julia being "sacred" and "divine." after all, they had just met each other. I couldn't get into the sex scenes either; there was no feeling of authenticity in either their dialogues or their actions. The personalities of the characters were quite two-dimensional and there was very little background information for any of the characters given in the story. Also, there was no explanation given at all about any connection between Peter and Paul and that was essential to the plot. Without that explanation the plot simply made no sense at all.
I really didn't enjoy reading the story so I would not recommend it.
