It has been six years since army nurse Jenny Bennett’s heart was broken by a dashing naval officer. Now Lieutenant Ryan Gallagher has abruptly reappeared in her life at the Presidio army base but refuses to discuss the inexplicable behavior that destroyed their happiness.
Ryan is in an impossible situation. One of the few men in the world qualified to carry out a daring assignment, he accepted a government mission overseas that caused his reputation to be destroyed and broke the heart of the only woman he ever loved. Honor bound never to reveal where he had been during those six years, he can’t tell Jenny the truth or it will endanger an ongoing mission and put thousands of lives at risk.
Although Ryan thinks he may have finally found a solution, he can’t pull it off on his own. Loyalty to her country compels Jenny to help, but she never could have imagined the intrigue she and Ryan will have to face or the lengths to which they will have to go to succeed.
Elizabeth Camden’s books are exceptional (or at least the ones I have read) and this book does not disappoint. Camden’s lead characters are always written well. One of the main reasons her books are so interesting is that she includes historical aspects, which I enjoy very much!
I have to admit that this is one of the saddest books that Camden has written. Throughout the book, I got the feeling that Jenny was far too good for Ryan but then I understood that this whole story is on forgiveness.
This book did not outrank my all-time favorite Elizabeth Camden book Against the Tide, but I still enjoyed it.
This book is an excellent story about what true forgiveness is. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good novel, with plenty of historical facts! If you have read Elizabeth Camden’s books, it is a must read. If you have not read any of her book, she is a really good Christian/inspirational/historical fiction author. So, in other words, I would recommend Elizabeth Camden as a great author to read!
