Commitmentsby Barbara Delinsky, Joyce Bean (Read by)
Sabrina Stone: elegant society wife, loving mother of a serverely disabled child, tragic portrait of a woman in pain. There are the impressions she conjures for investigator Derek McGill in their first meeting on the rooftop terrace of her Manhattan home. As for Sabrina, it is in their introduction that she senses a deep caring in this man. Sabrina next meets Derek in a maximum security prison--after he is convicted of murder. When curiosity and proximity bid her visit, she finds a hardened man, yet one who retains a germ of caring for her and her son. Sustained by that, Sabrina must make decisions that no wife or mother should ever have to make...and begin to fight for a wronged man's revenge.

Delinsky's Commitments was a pure joy to read. I was drawn to the powerful romance of Sabrina and Derek and the anguish that Sabrina felt for her son. Not only did the plot intrigued me but the love that bound Sabrina to Derek. Delinsky was able to capture all the emotions that a person can feel when being pushed to the limits: of being loved, of belonging, and of being true to oneself.
I have read 5 of Barbara Delinsky's work and this book was excellent. Barbara Delinsky writes in such a way that you can see and feel the characters in the story. You can see visually in your minds eye the settings and the emotion. Her books are awesome and I recommend this work. I enjoyed it. If you like a twist of romance and mystery...then Barbara Delinsky is for you. p.s. Some of the passion scenes are HOT!!! This book won't dissapoint you!!
i love the author of this book. i just didn't agree w/ some of the details of the plot. others may love it.
Once again Barbara Delinsky writes a truly touching romanitic novel. The read cannot help but be touched by the inner struggles of Sabrina, as she cares for her son Nicky. The love she shows him is truly appreciated by the mother in me. While Sabrina and Derek struggle to resolve a wrong that has been done to Derek, their lives face hurdles and problems. This book is another great touching Barbara Delinsky novel.
Good story but too drawn out. Could have been told in half the amount of pages.
This is the first book that I have read by this author. It was fantastic. There was romance, mystery, and I thought you could really feel the love between Sabrina and Derek. I definitely recommend this book and can't wait to read others by this author.
