Publisher's Summary

After a childhood of parental neglect, Valentine Denning has finally found happiness through her career as a war photojournalist - and through the love of fellow photographer Tony Hampton. But when Tony is tragically cut down in Kosovo, Val learns that her relationship with him was not what she was led to believe. Healing from both physical and emotional wounds, she must find a way through new loves and more intimate dangers to put back together a life of integrity, truth, and trust.

From the quiet solitude of an estate in southern France to the busy streets of London, New York, and Paris, Barbara Taylor Bradford takes listeners into the heart of a woman longing to discover where she belongs. Alexandra O'Karma's strong narration adds another layer of lush beauty to this moving story.

Potential squandered— this story dragged.

This story actually had many interesting plot twists and turns. There are m/f relationships that are not what they seem, there are crazy family dynamics, and there are very interesting supporting characters. There’s a nice slow moving romance that we get to watch. And we get to experience the horrors of war and racial genocide of Kosovo through the main characters, who are photojournalists and war correspondents.
So why did I give this audiobook only 3.5 stars? Because with all that great plot, the writing just dragged on and on and on. It was good enough that I wanted to finish the book, but it was a close run thing.
