Emmeline is a very brave heroine. She has suffered much in her short life. When she runs away from her hateful, cruel fiancée she goes to her home on her uncle's farm. She discovers that he suffered a stroke in the years she has been away and was left with difficulties. The farm is very run down.

The hero in this book is so wonderful. The mystery is how he stayed unattached! Tommy is regarded as a bit slow because he is very shy. Emmeline brings out the best in him and the two are made for each other.

The book is quite sexually graphic at times and is not for the faint hearted.

The story is excellent and the tension raises one’s neck hair! The opening chapter’s that describe Emmeline’s escape from the cruel Sonny is packed with tension and is heart thumping as the reader is caught up in Emmeline’s fear.

Emmeline is no perfect heroine. She made a lot of mistakes and wrong choices in her young life. The important thing is she learned so much and is such a hard worker as well as a brave woman who comes out on top against some really tough odds that would have made many a woman break under the strain.

Tommy became her protector and their love grew slowly.

The danger that stalked her with Sonny determined to track her down, adds such tension to the story. The reader can sense the danger and gets carried along on the tide of the plot.

I highly recommend this story. Just the type to curl up with on a wet afternoon, because it is a book the reader will want to finish in one sitting! It is too good to put down. At 164 pages it is a short book, but well worth investing in. A cracking read.
