"A wonderful story!"
Layna Bennett is divorced and unhappy, but then she
receives a letter in the mail that changes her life
forever. She is sent back in time to 1870, where everyone
believes that she is Mrs. Alayna Margeaut, which isn't a
compliment. The woman is heartless, conniving and with no
Trey Margeaut came back from the war alive, but with a
damaged leg. He thought he could find comfort in the arms
of his wife, but she spurns him. She doesn't want a man
that in her mind is not whole. He is trapped in a
loveless marriage, and takes it out on Layna, who looks so
much like his wife that even he is unable to tell that she
Layna doesn't give up and tries to make Trey see her for
who she really is, while Trey against his will begins to
fall for the woman he thought to despise forever.
You feel compassion for Trey's plight, for words of
rejections can be far more detrimental than physical
blows; they wound not the flesh but the soul. Layna
craves to have a family of her own, but believes it will
never happen. Layna and Trey butt heads more times than
not; they have to deal with deceit and greed of others;
but they also begin to see each other in a different
light, until their attraction cannot be denied.
Ms. Cassidy has written a tale of intrigue where the pen
is mightier than fate itself.
A wonderful story!
