MEMORIES WAIT ALONE
It is 1885. Cecil Sherbowe has led a privileged childhood, raised on the plains of the English countryside and granted everything he could ever want in life. He is in line to inherit his family's sprawling estate but only if he can fulfill his father's archaic wishes. Under the watchful eye of his cantankerous caretaker Ananias, Cecil is banished to work in the poverty stricken villages of The Deverills. Intending to break him of his vanity and pride, Cecil's months at The Deverills instead introduce him to a new infatuation - a young woman named Natalie that challenges everything Cecil believes in.
When he is forced to choose between her and his freedom, Cecil spends years chasing after his lost love, from the Boer War of Africa to the speakeasies of 1920's New York City. In order to reunite with the woman he loves, Cecil may have to lose everything along the way.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
It is a beautiful love story with a twist at the end. The author does a fine job of catching the emotions of the different people. The ending leaves the reader with sweetness of love and how twists of fate can change everything in a minute.
Written with a sadness that kept me turning the pages hoping that there would be a happy ending, but we all know that life does not always give us what we want or desire
There is something about the past+love that is stronger than any modern Romance writing.
