Book description: "When Diana Brennan’s husband returns eight years after abandoning her, can she find it in her heart to forgive him?
Diana Brennan came west on the orphan train and was given a home with a loving couple who cherished and spoiled her. At 17, she fell hard for Tyson Applegate, the son of a wealthy mine owner. After a whirlwind courtship and marriage, Tyson took off for adventures around the world, including fighting with the Rough Riders in Cuba. Receiving no word of him for eight years, Diana’s infatuation with her dashing husband died an ugly death, and she is ready to move past the old pain and marry again, just as soon as Tyson is declared legally dead.
But when her husband returns, supposedly a changed man, he wants to reunite with his wife and run for the senate. While Diana suspects the election is his real reason for wanting her by his side, she agrees to maintain his home and to campaign with him, but when it is over, win or lose, she wants her freedom. He agrees with one condition––she must give him a chance to change her mind about him."
My review: This is a book with wonderful characters, an interesting plot, a conflict that keeps you turning pages, and just enough suspense to pique your curiosity and make you wonder exactly how the book will end. I didn't want to put the book down and I certainly didn't want the book to end! Robin Lee Hatcher is a wonderful writer. Not only does she write a great story, but the story of redemption is woven throughout the pages of this book. The Biblical truths are presented in such a way that the story is enhanced and the message is very clear without being shoved down the reader's throat. The title of this book, Beloved, is so appropriate. If you are looking for a great book to read, I highly recommend this one. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Booksneeze in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
