The concept of a husband long suspected lost at sea returning to find his wife married to his best friend is certainly an interesting concept, but ultimately, I feel, this story falls short of its potential. I did not feel sympathy for Laura and felt that her character was weak and did not inspire empathy or compassion. Rye, while I felt sorry and empathized with his situation, was rather annoyed by his lack of respect for the Laura-Dan situation. In the end, I liked Dan best of all and felt that he conducted himself the best given the situation, and actively felt sorry for the man. Not really how you want to end a novel, feeling sorry for a man other than the hero!

I wanted to love this..I really did, but I just COULD NOT STAND Laura. I felt that she was playing both Rye and Dan. I disliked her so much that I didnt think she deserved either of them. The writing was pretty good and I thought that the idea for the story was an interesting one, but I just couldnt connect with the characters. One thing that I really did LOVE about this book though were the flashbacks of Laura and Rye discovering eachother and falling in love when they were young...in my opinion, no one can write sexual tension like Lavyrle Spencer. All in all, not bad, but not to die for either.... for a book by Ms Spencer, I thought this was woefully average.

There hasn't been one book of LaVyrle Spencers that I haven't enjoyed immensely. And I mean, immensely. Her books are some of the most romantic I've ever read. They take you away into such a fun place, you can't put the book down.
This story starts off in 1837. It's about Laura, Rye & Dan who were childhood friends & grew closer into adulthood. Laura & Rye had a magical connection, married and soon after he left on a whaling ship to try & earn their fortune. However, fate stepped in, his ship went down, and as everyone assumed, with him on it. 5 years later, with a son Rye never knew, married to his best friend Dan who saw her through the toughest times in her life, Rye returns and walks into a house that was once his & a woman he thought was still his wife. Not to mention the son he didn't know existed, but who's now calling another man papa. Rye's returned, but lost everything, including his house & it's belongings as he finds out that legally Laura's married to Dan. But with a love so very strong, Laura & Rye begin a journey, not knowing where it will leave all 4 of them & no one wanting to hurt the other.
I enjoyed this book for so many reasons, interesting & likable characters, memorable love story, great friendships and humor. It was also interesting to read about what it was like to live in Nantucket in the 1800's with the whaling industry & all of the other sorts of things like horse & carriage rides, making homemade candles & wearing those hideous corsets.
If you are looking for a love story, I'll guarentee you this one will not let you down!

The year is 1837 and today is the day- for five lonely years, handsome Rye Dalton dreamed of the day he would return home to Nantucket and to his beloved wife's soft tender kisses and her warm embraces. His wife Laura, to whom he is returning, is his childhood sweetheart. Things still look the same- the town, his house... but they're not. Less than a year after Rye sailed away word came back that his whaling ship had sunk taking all of the lives on it. Laura, long since believing Rye was dead, has married another man. He was there from the beginning to support Laura and help care for her and Rye's infant son- born 8 1/2 months after Rye left. He is the only father the boy has every known. He is non-other Rye's closest friend, Dan Morgan.
Now begins the questions - who is Laura legally married to now? and Who will she finally decide to share her life with? A great read!!!

One of my favorite (although I have many) Lavyrle Spencer books.
Touching. I always learn so much about a different time and place in our country and the life challenges of love and marriage then.

Well, I really do like Lvyrle Spencer as a writer. I feel she has a unique style and can also be quite humorous at times. This book, however, was not one of the ones that I would put in my top 10. At first I couldn't put the book down. The idea was great. A woman who suppossedly loses her husband to death. Then she marries his best friend obviously out of convenience and gratitude. First husband then shows up five years later to reclaim wife, home and child he never knew he had. I thought "hey this is going to be good." But, then the book just dragged on and on. There was just no umph to it. I mean it was pretty obvious who Laura was going to pick from the beginning. And I kept wondering to myself what was it that she had that made these two men fall in love with her since she was a young girl. One thing that I truly had a hard time swallowing was when Laura told Rye that once she had made the decision to leave Dan for Rye they wouldn't dishonor Dan while she was still married to him. HELLOOOO!!!! News Flash!!! SHe already dishonored him because she had already snuck out and slept with Rye while she was still married to Dan. Frankly, the end was just to boring for me. I found myself skipping paragraphs just to hurry up and finish the book. You'll be better off taking this book out of the library than spending hard earned money on it like I did.
