Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth's Heart is the second book in The 1929 Series.

Simon Sinclair, who is institutionalized in 1929 for having prophetic visions, narrates from inside the Massachusetts Asylum for Feeble Minds and Lunatics. There he meets Elizabeth, a young woman with a shadow personality and a dark, secretive past. Someone Simon knows he is destined to love.

As their lives become entwined, they grow so attached to each other that they each begin to believe they are the other's "cure". But from the perspective of outsiders, it appears that each of them are growing more unstable. The harder they try to hold on to each other and their love, the more they are pulled apart.

Realizing freedom will be the only way for them to marry and lead a normal life, Simon plans their escape with help from an unlikely hospital source, hiding secrets of his own, and they must be careful not to alert Elizabeth's other personality, for fear it will expose them.

On a dark and frigid night in January, they run.

But life on the run turns out to be more challenging and less romantic than either of them expected, testing their resolve and love to the limits. Simon continues to have prophetic visions, and Elizabeth's hidden personality becomes angry about not being in control. Through repeated visions he neither understands nor likes, Simon realizes that the only way to have Elizabeth forever is to do the unthinkable. Give her up to someone else. In doing so, he unwittingly places one of the main characters from the novel 1929 - Jonathan's Cross in grave danger.

Not a Good Follow Up to Jonathan's Cross

Okay . . . this is the second in the 1929 series . . . first of all, it's not historical fiction . . . Simon Sinclair is in a mental hospital, and he has the power to "see things" . . . second of all, the narrator is a woman, but she is speaking for Simon, she IS Simon . . . thirdly, this does not tie in with Jonathan's cross at all . . . UNTIL THE VERY END . . . and then it makes me mad . . . it makes me think that the third book will also be ruined, by turning it into something like this one . . . NOT an historical novel at all, but one of dead people talking to one another . . . I LOVED Jonathan's Cross . . . not sure the same author REALLY wrote them both.

Story great, but narrator bad

Loved the way this story was woven into the story from Book 1. But the narrator had poor inflection and she mispronounced the names from Book 1. I hope we can go back to the Irish narrator for the rest of the series!!

pronunciation

Small criticism: Jean, French, is pronounced John. Read the 1st book, then you'll know how to pronounce the names for the second.

Elizabeth's Heart

I wasn't thrilled with the first book in this series, however I thought I'd give the second book a try. I was even more disappointed. I really liked the beginning and the middle, however when they get back to the asylum is where I feel the story falls short. HORRIBLE NARRATOR,SHE GRATED ON MY NERVES, I WAS GLAD WHEN I FINISHED,JUST TO NOT LISTEN TO HER ANYMORE. WHY? NO INFLECTION, ALL MONOTONE!!!

Compelling

I went into this book not knowing what to expect. I came out of it having been glad to have given it my time. All of the characters I found likeable, and the story was interesting. And of course, Angel Clark did a stellar job all the while!
