Of all the historical romances I have read (and there have been many, many), this one remains my favorite. I absolutely love this story - you will too! I have a hardback copy and a Nook copy. Suspend your morality and enjoy this book. Joann

Loved the people! Loved the story! Compassionate telling of a time and situation that was and is uncommon but not totally unique. There are times when the detailed descriptions of the work involved seem tedious until one imagines actually having to carry out that schedule of work just to carry on and eat and live normally. What and how the household chores were done seems amazing considering our modern-day lifestyles where some people consider it an inconvenience to even go to the store to do their own shopping. Many people in today's world want their fresh meal ingredients delivered pre-cut and ready to heat. During the time of the story, rural people were proud that most of the food they put on the table had been planted, cultivated, preserved, and prepared by themselves. Meat, poultry, eggs, butter, and milk were produced by their own efforts. It is certainly easy to understand why large families were desirable. The romantic triangle grows stronger throughout the story. The teamwork and interdependence deepens the yearning and frustration felt by all involved. Intriguing without the modern crass emphasis.

This was the first romance novel I had ever read. It's funny because I remember seeing the movie, and liking it until the end where society wouldn't have agreed with the book ending and therefore (in the movie) Mary and Aaron lived separate lives. The book on the other hand was very, very good. At first it throws you because of the sister-in-law, brother-in-law thing. But as the book progresses, you see that Mary and Aaron really were meant for each other. The last chapters of the book are absolutely the best, and it almost makes you wish it went into people's mind more to see what they were really thinking. The book as a whole is a definite read. It makes you cry, and also makes you happy. It involves you.

I guess it's just that i never left the 'morality of constraint' time of my childhood, but after the husband's demise and even before ,i could not for the life of me justify the affair by any means. He asked them to do it and they refused, yet they were ''meant to be.' I thought that was farfetched and it read that way. I saw nothing romantic about the fact that he died and they lived happily ever after, even though they betrayed him, after pretending his suggestion was such an abomination.

Although this novel is not my favorite by LaVyrle Spencer, it is definitely worth reading more that once. I really did not agree with killing off the husband so the wife and brother-in-law could marry, but it is what I would have expected from what I know of Spencer's style.
