Did the three girls ever return to the school? Did Priscilla's attitude stay the same? In which crampt space did Louise, Jesse, and their girl end up living in Singapore? Did Jesse's lighthouse responsibilities increase once he got married? Did his nightmares continue?
Also, I really did not like Jesse. He was weak-- fearful and avoiding--and couldn't make up his mind. Given the peek into his family, his attitude of wanting to carry on a dynasty (my words) is hard to take. I found him to be a totally unsympathetic character.
And then Jesse turns into a dunderhead. There's no other way to describe it! I gave him a tongue-lashing that would blister a sailor's ears but Jesse paid me no mind. Argh! It's lucky I wasn't physically there or I would have smacked him up side the head with a cast iron frying pan. Stubborn, foolish man. Gah! No need to despair though. The author manages to wrestle him under control and melted my heart at the same time. If you like a healthy dose of angst with your sweet and tender romance then this is definitely the book for you.
I really enjoyed the community and interactions of all of the various characters. Jesse and Louise both had some traumatic issues from their pasts. It was telling to see that Jesse sometimes let those memories control him, while Louise eventually was able to rise above what had happened to her. This was a nice story to read at Christmas time and I especially enjoyed the epilogue at the end of the book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
