“Don’t you love me, Kate? Has everything you ever felt for me really disappeared in less than ten minutes?”
“I do love you,” I said woodenly. “I always will. But you’ll never hear it from me again.”
Kate Evans has never had a real family—and she’s never dreamed of falling in love. But when she gets a job taking care of a little girl on a lonely Utah ranch, Kate’s determined to make a life for herself.
Right up until the moment she meets her irritable employer…
Kate is forced to run from a past she can’t confront—and face a future she never dreamed possible.
Sparks fly in this LDS twist on the classic Jane Eyre.
WHAT A FUN BOOK!
A WONDERFUL read!
While it took some time for me to get into the book (I think because Kate spends the first chapter recounting her personal history in a detached manner) once the “irritable employer” Tyler makes his appearance, things started to get really interesting! Kate morphs from dry to feisty as she has a cause to champion- the little girl Addie that she’s come to love and Tyler’s treatment of her. The chemistry between Kate and Tyler is great as they spar and banter, fight then eventually give in to the mutual attraction.
I enjoyed seeing the story lines match up with those from Jane Eyre, but there are also twists that bring some surprises. For a character that started out so unemotional, Kate becomes an emotional mess as she navigates for the first time the drama and heartbreak of romantic relationships. The friends she makes that support her through these turbulent times are quirky and likeable, and add more depth to Kate’s new experience of friendship and loyalty.
