= A reader from Providence, R.I., February 10, 2004
I plan to read it again on my next vacation. I read "I'll
Take Manhattan" twice because it was so good. I'll read "Coming Home" again
A POWERFUL STORY, August 30, 2003
I had my doubts as I am not a romantic genre reader but a friend recommended this book he said written by a showbiz friend. I read the book because of him but after the prologue I continued on and realized I finished the book in one sitting. I wanted more and needed to know what Charity's life would have been after the end. A sequel would be interesting and maybe about Charity's daughter continuing on the saga of the Ashlyn ladies.
Powerful story!, August 26, 2003
The author has done a remarkable job with this story.
A POWERFUL READ, August 10, 2003
It is a powerful read. My first reaction to the prologue was to continue reading. I wanted to find out why the mysterious widow called her husband an S.O.B. right off the bat. I also wanted to find out why the name of the woman she was talking to was the name her husband uttered. Lots of questions were on my mind before I read the book. All were answered & I learned more. I have read many intriquing prologues and find that the story that follows actually leads nowhere near my expectation but the author's follow-up on her prologue gave me the satisfaction I was anticipating. thanks!

A good read although I had my doubts, July 29, 2003
The author is my good friend and colleague. She was not sure if male readers would be interested in her book as it is in the 'romantic' genre. Because she is my friend, I proceeded to read the Prologue (as a favor to her!) then I found I kept reading on and could not put it down. It is a good read no matter who is reading it. The story is captivating and the heroine Charity Ashlyn makes you dwell on family values. Amapola's wonderful detailed description of places, people and special events in the novel made me feel part of the story. If you have never read a romance novel before, I recommend that you read this one.
