About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Absolutely fantastic and best written historical romance book I have ever read. This stoy had my emotions up and down and I loved it! I cried within the first three chapters of the book. That's how great this is. If any book could get my emotions just wrung out like this, it has to get the highest recommendation I have ever put forth to a book. I have read hundreds of books, but this might be the first, in my memory, that I have ever cried from. That's how touching and descriptive scenes from this book were. Genevieve has out done herself in this novel. I can't wait for book two and there will even be more in this series.
We are taken through the life of Maggie, a girl from South Carolina that has dreamed of a boy since she was very young. Across miles and oceans. They don't know each other. They have never met, yet in their dreams they do. Maggie has the gift of sight. She is able to see things that are going to happen or are happening. Yet, it doesn't let her see everything. She can not read everything in her own future but she does get flashes of things that will happen and to the people around her. We are lead through some HORRIFIC occurrences in her life and her growing up and becoming a woman.
Then we watch as the man Maggie has dreamed about helps her in ways that are so surreal. She also helps him in his times of need. I loved how they did this for each other. Helping each of them give strength and love to one and other was just magical. I don't even feel like I can give this book the justice it deserves. It's just that great. It's a wonderful and imaginative tale of strength, honor and above all else true love.
I HIGHLY recommend getting a copy of this book.
I give Under the Same Sky by Genevieve Graham 5 or 5 stars and is another of my 2012 favorites!
I told the author, when I was midway through the book, that it was stealing my breath and breaking my heart. She responded that she hoped it would heal my heart as well, and I am happy to say her hope was fulfilled. This book? Breathtaking. Honestly. This is not your typical damsel in distress with a heaving bosom beneath a ripped bodice type of romance novel. This, well, this is pure magic. The story is so incredibly written. The way that Maggie and Andrew have parallel lives, paths occasionally crossing on a metaphysical plane.
Maggie's character is what really broke my heart. This poor girl, her story is so painful. I cannot imagine any reader not having an intense reaction to Maggie's story. And yet, her strength, her will to survive is so beautiful. I felt more connected to Maggie than to Andrew, but I feel certain that without sometimes seeing through Andrew's eyes, this story would have been incomplete. I think it is brilliant the way Graham allows their stories to unfold simultaneously.
There is a deeply spiritual connection between Maggie and Andrew, and that is what makes this story so romantic. I am the type of reader who longs for that type of story in a genre that, despite its name, is often reduced to shallow sexuality. I think real fans of romance novels will enjoy this book, particularly those fond of historical romances and Highland romances.
Genevieve Graham has outdone herself this time.
