Barbara Delinsky

Hold My Heart

Gillian Montgomery is a talented artist with a loving family and promising future. But her life takes a shocking turn when she loses everything in a plane crash—and awakens from a coma seven weeks later. At first, she’s confused: What is she doing in a hospital in North Carolina? And who is the incredibly handsome stranger who’s been visiting her every day? His name is Jed Dawson, a man she met in an art gallery. He’s taken her under his wing—and into his heart—as a favor to the grandmother she never knew she had. As Gillian grows stronger each day, so do her feelings for Jed. And with every kiss, he restores her passion for life—with the power of love…

Meet the Author

Barbara Delinsky
Barbara Delinsky
Barbara Delinsky started out her writing career creating novels for the category romance genre, partly under pseudonyms; but she has evolved into a name-brand all her own, praised by romance fans for the layered plotting and the complex characters on display in literally dozens of bestsellers.

Biography

Born Ruth Greenberg, and raised in suburban Boston, Barbara Delinsky worked as a sociology researcher in children's services and was a newspaper photographer and reporter before turning to fiction writing full-time. In point of fact, she never intended to pursue a literary career. But, in the early 1980s, a newspaper article profiling three women who successfully balanced home, family, and romance writing caught her attention. Intrigued, she spent months researching and writing her first novel. It sold -- and Delinsky was off and running.

Praised by critics and fans alike for her character driven studies of marriage, parenthood, and friendship, Delinsky is one of a small cadre of successful women writers (including Nora Roberts and Sandra Brown) who started out writing pseudonymous paperbacks for the category romance genre and muscled their way onto the bestseller lists with hardcover escapist fiction. Yet she is candid about the hard work involved and insists there's no tried-and-true formula that converts automatically to easy money. As if to prove her own point, Delinsky works from eight in the morning to about seven at night, writing in the office above the garage in her Newton, Massachusetts home; doing research; handling interviews; or -- her least favorite part of the job -- touring the country making author appearances.

Over the decades Delinsky has written dozens of novels that have landed on The New York Times bestseller list, including Twilight Whispers (1988), For My Daughters (1994), Three Wishes (1997), Flirting with Pete (2003), and Family Tree (2007). In 2001, she published her first nonfiction title, Uplift: Secrets from the Sisterhood of Breast Cancer Survivors. A cancer survivor herself, she has earmarked all the profits from the sale of this book to benefit breast cancer research.

Good To Know

When she isn't writing, one of Delinsky's favorite pastimes is kayaking.

She gets some of her best ideas in the shower. "It's a little harder to write ideas down there," she wrote to fans on her web site, "but I've been known to yell something out to my husband, who does it for me!"

The family cat, Chelsea, is named after her 1992 novel The Passions of Chelsea Kane.

    This book was terribly written, and the characters were extremely unlikeable. I was not even able to finish the book due to those two things. I would absolutely not recommend this to anyone.

    Jed had stalked Gillian for years until he finally was able to hold her as a captive after a plane crash, she was afraid of him but chose to "love" him?  Could have been written as a "bodice ripper" from the 1700's.  I almost didn't finish it, but kept hoping that there would be a redeeming ending, VERY DISAPPOINTING.

    Highly recommend

    Barbara Delinsky always delivers a sweet and touching love story. I really enjoyed this story of growing trust and love between the characters. She has a way of creating chatacters who are so endearing that the reader feels a kinship with them. A thoroughly enjoyable book.

    No thanks......

    This is the first time I have ever not finished a book....it was dull and anti-climactic. There was no appeal in the "love" between the characters. No spark. The way the story developed was forced and didn't make sense.

    Irritating

    Unappealing characters. Unbelievable storyline. I put this book down about 80 pages in. Just could not continue reading. One of the few times I have ever not finished a book.

    Good stuff

    This is a reissue of a book from the 80s, written by the same author under a different name. The story is well done, and the characters well developed. The language is a bit high brow for a romance novel and sometimes interrups the flow of the story telling. Still this book is worth reading.

    Jed and Jill each have a pain filled past that they have to over come in order to be together. They butt heads and each strains under their new role as they try to figure out how to be a couple.
