Summary

It has been six years since army nurse Jenny Bennett's heart was broken by a dashing naval officer. Now Lieutenant Ryan Gallagher has abruptly reappeared in her life at the Presidio army base, but refuses to discuss the inexplicable behavior that destroyed their happiness.

Ryan is in an impossible situation. One of the few men in the world qualified to carry out a daring assignment, he accepted a government mission overseas that caused his reputation to be destroyed and broke the heart of the only woman he ever loved. Honor-bound never to reveal where he had been during those six years, he can't tell Jenny the truth or it will endanger an ongoing mission and put thousands of lives at risk.

Although Ryan thinks he may have finally found a solution, he can't pull it off on his own. Loyalty to her country compels Jenny to help, but she never could have imagined the intrigue she and Ryan will have to face or the lengths to which they will have to go to succeed.

Critic reviews

"Camden is the master of historical-inspirational romance, and she has delivered another fascinating read with complex, memorable characters and an interesting subplot about the start of the cultured pearl industry." ( Booklist)

Narration almost killed the book for me

The story is not her best but it’s ok but the narration was bad enough almost didn’t finish it several times. There were times she wasn’t as bad as others but the last of it was almost unbearable for me. Some are just not the best in this field and not to be mean it’s just not her calling.

Reader needs practice.

The story was good. However, the reader sounded a lot like Siri, very clipped and halting in her speech. I don't know if it was a problem with my download, but it was annoying to listen to.

Mixed reviews

The story was pretty good. I do not think it entirely truth-worthy when the author dismisses the need for others to show themselves trustworthy as a woman's silly insecurity. I struggled with the narrator's clipped speech throughout the book which made it sound a little like she was scolding someone or giving a lecture. And she can't do a child's voice. It's only bothersome, not terrible.

Narrators voice was very choppy, hesitant,halting

Great story but difficult to relax to listen to.

A differerant narrator would create an enjoyable experience.

Narrator Too Stiff

I enjoyed the storyline of this book, though at times I wished it would just get to the end. That was due in most part to the narrator. She was too clipped in her speaking and often sounded robotic. There was little feeling presented within the story. I wish it had been read with a softer tone and not the clipped words she often used.

Good book, narration ok

I love the varied topics Elizabeth Camden writes about! They are well thought out and I find myself learning about things I’ve never thought much about while reading a great story. This story wasn’t as good as some, and again lacked the witty humor of the first books of hers I read, but it was the narrator that bothered me most. And maybe that’s where the brightness and humor got wiped out. This narrator seems to focus so much on being perfectly concise/articulate that she lacks a cheerful upbeat smooth narration. To me the main character sounded like a not so kindly, demanding person with the voice the narrator gave her. She’d be excellent if she’d smooth out a little and inject some enthusiasm!

Good story, unusual narration

It took me a while to complete this story because, in the beginning, I would fall asleep while listening to this narrator.
Her voice is a mix of robotic and then, at times, somewhat enjoyable. The usual inflections were missing some of the time, but showed up as expected at other times. I think this could have been a very enjoyable book if another narrator had read it.

Horrible Narrator and poor story line

The narration is beyond horrible. This book should absolutely NOT be listened to. The story itself was not one I enjoyed. The language used was not in-line with the time period for the book which bothered me. The plot was rushed, gapped, and poorly done. The characters are far too two-dimensional. There are far better books to devote your time to.

Good stuff

The story was a good but the narrator kept swallowing and it got to me. She was good with voices but swallowed at almost every other paragraph.
