Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Rice continues to explore mother-daughter dynamics and themes of religion and destiny in her serviceable latest (after What Matters Most). Anthropologist Susannah Connolly, encouraged by her mentor Professor Helen Oakes, travels to the Camargue region in southern France for research and to fulfill a promise to Susannah's recently deceased mother to visit a statue of Sarah, a religious figure of the Romany people whose power supposedly helped Susannah's parents conceive their only daughter. Filled with guilt that she was far away at work when her mother died, Susannah is taunted and branded as indifferent by her former flame Ian Stewart, an ambitious colleague who creepily follows her to France and tries to persuade her to marry him. But after Grey, a French horse rancher, saves Susannah from big trouble in a marsh, their chemistry sizzles in tired prose (Susannah was different from anyone he'd ever known) as Grey, whose wife left him five years earlier, agonizes about bringing a new woman into his family. While the story provides some intrigue (a group of Romany women connected to Grey's wife take Susannah into their confidence), the narrative is maddeningly repetitive and the lovey-dovey passages dull. All of Rice's hallmarks are present, though this time out they don't pop. (Feb.)

HASH(0xa297dd80) out of 5 stars Need to vist Camargue! Feb. 15 2008
By C.K.Designer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Could this book be any more beautiful and descriptive of such an intriguing setting/location for a story? I found myself researching Camargue and the white horses that inhabit the salt marshes of this Southern France locale. I viisted Provance, France in May, 2007 and now feel the need to return to observe first-hand this special and historic area of the country. Luanne Rice has written a fulfilling story with troubled, but endearing, characters and leaves the reader wanting more. 5 stars for this wonderful book!

HASH(0xa29a0228) out of 5 stars not up to par June 22 2008
By Jayne L. Hawthorne - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of Luanne Rice, but this book disappointed me. I found it boring and difficult to get into. This surprises me as I love horses and the theme really appeals to me. But I found the child to be just too over the top and difficult to relate to. (I feel I can make that statement since I share a similar background.) I did enjoy the history of the area, but I had to force myself to finish the book. It also seemed that the ending was just too unreal. If the child was that much of a basket case, it seemed unlikely all would be solved in an instant.

HASH(0xa29a03cc) out of 5 stars Wonderful Story! May 15 2008
By jcro72 - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This was the first of her books I've read, and I'm DEFINATELY going to read more! This story was a beautiful romantic soul-searcher. It has a bit of a 'Horse Whisperer' feel to it, though there are no married persons involved, and this is a good example that a story can be all you think it should be to be satisfying without the smut and language that so many authors put in their books these days. The end also was not what I expected. Normally in a romance he meets her, you know they're going to end up together, the only thing left is to read the story to find out how. Not so in this book. The setting was a bit difficult for me. I had a hard time with the names of the towns, and I'm afraid I don't have much of an imagination when it comes to far away places. But the story was so good that those limitations didn't matter. A good romance, a good horse book, a great page-turner for sure.

HASH(0xa29a07a4) out of 5 stars Very Disappointing July 26 2008
By J. Bottem - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have read all of Luanne Rice's books and was very disappointed in this one. Her writing is very contrived, simplistic and choppy. It lacked depth, substance and flow. It almost seemed to me that she threw this together in a week or so. I actually had to force myself to finish reading it. Many of her books are very predictable (as is this one), but still enjoyable to read. I felt the quality of her writing in this book was sorely lacking.
