Publisher's Summary

It has been six years since army nurse Jenny Bennett's heart was broken by a dashing naval officer. Now Lieutenant Ryan Gallagher has abruptly reappeared in her life at the Presidio army base, but refuses to discuss the inexplicable behavior that destroyed their happiness.

Ryan is in an impossible situation. One of the few men in the world qualified to carry out a daring assignment, he accepted a government mission overseas that caused his reputation to be destroyed and broke the heart of the only woman he ever loved. Honor-bound never to reveal where he had been during those six years, he can't tell Jenny the truth or it will endanger an ongoing mission and put thousands of lives at risk.

Although Ryan thinks he may have finally found a solution, he can't pull it off on his own. Loyalty to her country compels Jenny to help, but she never could have imagined the intrigue she and Ryan will have to face or the lengths to which they will have to go to succeed.

Critic Reviews

"Camden is the master of historical-inspirational romance, and she has delivered another fascinating read with complex, memorable characters and an interesting subplot about the start of the cultured pearl industry." (Booklist)

Narration almost killed the book for me

The story is not her best but it’s ok but the narration was bad enough almost didn’t finish it several times. There were times she wasn’t as bad as others but the last of it was almost unbearable for me. Some are just not the best in this field and not to be mean it’s just not her calling.

Reader needs practice.

The story was good. However, the reader sounded a lot like Siri, very clipped and halting in her speech. I don't know if it was a problem with my download, but it was annoying to listen to.

Mixed reviews

The story was pretty good. I do not think it entirely truth-worthy when the author dismisses the need for others to show themselves trustworthy as a woman's silly insecurity. I struggled with the narrator's clipped speech throughout the book which made it sound a little like she was scolding someone or giving a lecture. And she can't do a child's voice. It's only bothersome, not terrible.

Not my favourite<br />

I love Elizabeth Camden. She is so talented. I really hope she doesn't leave out God in her books now that she is a best-selling author! The problem I had with this book is that I still don't know why Ryan did what he did?! Poor Jenny! But what courage and grace she showed Ryan to forgive him. Only a Spirit-filled person could be so much like God, I believe. Great performance!
