Honestly, I could not care if they ended up together or not. Lily and Avery are one of those couples who are so dramatic, so intense, that you just want to read the end and not get thru the drama. The first 5 years happen fast; in these letters, at least, I did not feel the chemistry. Their love-hat...

God I love Brockway!"Avery?" she whispered.He gathered her closer, his eyes still closed."Avery?""Shh." His voice was low and infinitely sad. "Hush. Tomorrow's waiting outside this door.

And the man being upset because he might not get ...

So often the genre is used as a fancy back drop and an excuse to make your characters talk funny but Brockway really took advantage of exploring interpersonal relationships in a time and s...

A super romantic historical, with an H/h story that was deeply passionate and from the heart. I loved it. I shed a few tears in the end. And such great bantering/dialog between the H/h, what fun it was when these two were communicating together. Set in the countryside of England in the late 1800’...

Neither groundbreaking or groundshaking, this was a good book to read at the beach or whilst curled up on a comfy chair.Avery and Lily have amazing chemistry but some of the lines were a bit cheesy and on top of that, Lily's feminism ways were colored by something close to misogyny. It looks like th...
