The beginning development of the characters did not match up with the story. Out of no where this war bride awaits the return of her long missed husband's return within days by having a torrid sexual affair out of no where. There was no character development. The time period details were weak: announcement of twin pregnancy?! How did they know that back in the 1940'?! The blunt rough tactless description of the sex acts was not in line with the supposed character of the characters. It not only did not make sense, the ending was convenient and unnecessary. Very hard to believe. A woman can throw her whole life and reputation away on a whim yet not take one hour out of her life to contact her lover to stop him from leaving town. I would be ashamed to give this book as a gift due to the erotic nature of the storyline. So reader beware! I immediately got it out of my house. I love romance that is developed and that is time and age appropriate, but this was nothing but sex for no purpose. It did nothing to develop a storyline. The writing was choppy and the occasional long word throw in to make the writer appear intellectual. It did not flow. This will not be the next Nicholas Sparks.
