'No Glimmer of Hope' would be a apt titleI look at the title and wonder what was going on in the author's head Sarcasm Irony or eternal optimismWith spoilers For me the book is divided in two halves pre and post the big reveal The first part is a very engrossing read while the second is shocking and disappointing The first half is angsty emotional and so hurtful because of the H's supercilious and one sided judgmentalism He lets his parents'mother's disdainful attitude towards the uiet h color his own The h is uiet shy and physically weakdrained One wonders at her physical exhaustion and I thought it to be clinical depression perhaps The hH married three years ago after a whirlwind courtship without the approval of his parents and they never thought her country ways suitable for their politically upwardly mobile son Lots is suggested about the reason for their separation few months after their wedding and one gets it right mostly The H thinks she's gone back to her loving Grandfather but she's actually living on one of his minor estates and he comes here inadvertently as he's planned a house party here So it's a shock for both of them to see each other Not knowing what to do he lets her stay on and be his hostess much to the horror of his uptight and critical mother The mother drives her ragged to make sure London standards are met with Even the guests see how she's being treated and slowly the H comes to see his mother for what she is Of course all this pans out slowly The hH come closer and decide to take another chance on their marriageMajor major spoilers Then the second half happens with the grandfather revealing the truth about her conditionview spoiler and I wanted to drop the book there and then Wasn't it enough that the h has suffered soooo much a secret baby who dies after birth that the author thought the reader needed this I don't read my romance for HFNs I NEED HEAs What the h had is probably Rheumatic heart disease and that's one sad condition with the patient always aware of the whooshing murmurs and discomfort in their chest It's no reassurance rather is overkill for the doctor to pontificate that he's sure that one day a cure will be discovered Eff thatAnd the H is an idiot to not see what was in front of him his parents' duplicity How could he believe that his sweet and mild wife had turned into willful and spoiled woman who 'broke' his heart What man would rely on estate managers and middle men to relay what his wife feels or thinks How difficult would it be to ride down find and confront his wife And one big elephant in the room is conveniently shoved away sex and babies No mention is made whether they will have sex which euates with pregnancies in those times And what does happen if she does fall pregnant We are left to wonder whether the h will live for six months six years or thirty years Wow lovely hide spoiler

Tor arrives Carter Alexander Harford Seventh Viscount Devereaux is a man driven to succeed His work is his life and the position of Prime Minister of England is within reach But in truth Carter is a man haunted by lost love Estranged from his beautiful wife Carter is shocked to find Miranda the woman he’d loved and who he believes has left him in residence at his country homeAs pl. I don’t remember exactly how I came upon Ms Eden’s books but it was a few years ago while I was living in San Diego I read the description on a few of her books and Through All Hopes stood out to me I love the whole lost love plot and this one sounded especially good I went to and ordered a copy I waited and waited and after a month or two emailed me and said they were unable to fulfill the reuest As some of you know Ms Eden’s earlier books were no longer being published at that time I believe she was working with a new publisher and had learned that she would eventually be re releasing them I was so disappointed; I wanted to read Through All Hopes and was sad I wouldn’t be able to At least not for a long time When her books started coming out again I couldn’t wait after reading Courting Miss Lancaster I think that was the first one re published I knew I was hooked I was beyond excited when I saw on Ms Eden’s Facebook page the other day that Glimmer of Hope was coming out and that it was the new version of Through All Hopes So my expectations for this one may have been a little high While I wasn’t by any means disappointed I was surprised how the story unfolded I liked our heroine Miranda she is easy to like and relate to The story starts three years after her husband Carter abandoned her I liked that the story picks up right when Miranda and Carter meet again after being separated for three years You have a lot of uestions about what happened to cause the separations since from each characters POV each thought the other had left So there is a bit of a mystery about what had kept them apart There is some great tension between the two and a lot of hurt feelings I liked that we got to hear from Carter’s POV I think we actually get of him than Miranda I liked seeing the growth and understanding he goes through I wasn’t too surprised by the reasons for the separation but it does break your heart to think of all they had missed out on view spoiler Stupid interfering family hide spoiler

Through All HopesAns for a holiday party move forward the uneasy couple realizes that to avoid further scandal they must keep up appearances in a charade of marital happiness Thrust together by fate it uickly becomes clear that they have both been living beneath a conspired cloud of misunderstanding As family career and social pressures threaten to keep them apart can love have even a glimmer of hop. Anyone else waking up uneasy in the middle of the night I find my sleep these days is interrupted so I try to read myself back to sleep with romance And while I love the writing in this one and Eden's hallmark gentle touch I found this one bordered on sentimental A lot of drastic secrets A lot of missed opportunities I applaud Eden for wanting to delve into grief uncertainty and perceived abandonment in a genre that largely favours conventional happy ever afters But the division and one party being too sweet and trusting and the other too far out of the situation made it hard for me to carve out the nuance and complexity of this tradition one of my favourites married couple ripped apart and reunited I love Eden's books but this one might just have been a case of intersecting the wrong reader at the wrong time That being said I applaud her delving deep and subverting expectations Her characterization is always master class
