This is an ordinary middle-of-the-road romance. The back story of a woman in search of her biological mother is relegated to the back seat and it's mainly used to as an overly dramatic emotional crutch. Julia London is accomplished enough as a romantic author to keep the book moving, albeit slowly. Unfortunately what comes to mind when doing a review of this book are adjectives like trite, cliched, formulaic or average. The Estrogen Army that is my support system at this moment has opened me up to the viability of in the romance category but this one ain't it. If you're a fan of the genre this might be a good listen for you; otherwise I can't recommend it.

I reallly liked the character development in this book for the most part, although I think Jane's issues were drawn out a little more than necessary. The book dealt with some pretty serious family issues with a realism that drew me in and held my interest. I'm used to Julia London's regency era novels, and experiencing her writing in a contemporaty setting was a nice change of pace. This story is definitely credit worthy.
