    When Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community..

    Ruth Adamson says: "Not Nicholas Sparks best, but ok"
    "Slow, predictable, poorly written"
    Overall

    This is probably a book better read than listened to. The writing was quite poor and the story line predictable - this is essentially "sleeping with the enemy".

    English magicians were once the wonder of the known world, with fairy servants at their beck and call; they could command winds, mountains, and woods. But by the early 1800s they have long since lost the ability to perform magic. They can only write long, dull papers about it, while fairy servants are nothing but a fading memory.

    David says: "Hang in there!"
    "An excellent book"
    Overall

    I highly recommend it. I love victorian novels - she does a great job describing the scenes and the details of life in that era. My husband complained about the lack of action but it didn't bother me at all - the story is engrossing and the twist at the end exciting.
