Overview



Trapped in a loveless marriage at the turn of the twentieth century, a British noblewoman finds renewed passion with a young architect
 
Lady Sara Longford’s once-storybook marriage is falling apart. Her husband, Ben Cochrane, a New York entrepreneur, married Sara in the hopes that a high-society English wife would improve his odds of entering New York’s uppermost social strata, but so far those ambitions have remained unfulfilled, and the relationship has soured.
 
But things change when Sara meets up-and-coming draftsman Alex McKie, hired to build Cochrane’s garish summer home in Newport, Rhode Island. When Cochrane sends Sara away to Newport to oversee the construction, Sara finds herself increasingly drawn to the charming Alex. As their relationship develops, Sara must chose between the safe life she knows and the forbidden love that threatens to destroy everything she holds dear.

A passionate story of forbidden love that "will remain in the heart long after the final page Nora Roberts--from the acclaimed author of Lily. Beautiful, sensitive Sara Cochrane yearns to be free of her sham of a marriage. And when she first see Alex McKie, she knows that he can see through the facade to the desperate woman who longs to gain entry into Another Eden.

    Strong romance from Gaffney

    While not my favorite from the sublime Gaffney, Another Eden is another engrossing, powerful romance from one of the genre's all-time greats. Well worth your time.

    Awful!

    This book started out beautiful, which is what one would expect from a Patricia Gaffney novel. However, it rapidly deteriorated. The reason truly horrible things happen in romance novels is so that they can be resolved, and instead of resolution, Gaffney opts for a phenomenal quantity of irrational indecision on the part of his heroine, who never even tells the hero the whole of the traumatic experiences she has undergone at the hands of her abusive, emotionally sadistic husband. This is not entirely unusual in romance novels, however I have never read anything this frustrating, because there are so many very real obstacles to their happy ending, these are utterly illegitimized by the heroine's inability to accept happiness when the obstacles to it are removed. Her attitude towards her husband almost condones his behavior. However much she wants to protect their son from knowledge of his brutality, she never allows him to come to his own decisions about the most important things in his life, and never seems to come to terms herself with the extent to which he was an abysmal human being, father, and husband. Alex's fury in the face of her repeated rejections for the last third of this neverending book, couldn't be more understandable. I shared it completely.
