Reads like a juicy memoir!

“This was an entertaining read that left me pondering the motivations and relationships between characters. Because it began with a few words from the present before diving into the story of the past, it was easy to form a quick dislike for the main male character early on, but his actions throughout just made me dislike him all the more. That being said, there were times when I felt for him, understanding the reasons behind some of his antics. I particularly enjoyed the realistic feel of the story. I actually looked the book back up on Amazon soon after starting it, to see if it was listed under the memoir category, as it felt quite autobiographical. The ending left me contemplating issues of trust. When is it appropriate to forgive and move on? What actions cannot be forgiven; where is the line? Can a second chance work out in the long run, or will it result in another exercise of frustration and heartache – i.e., are we better to forgive previous sins and move on or does a tiger truly never change his stripes? Interesting questions to ponder!”

A Delightful Love Story

“Star-crossed lovers from the beginning between cultures, racial differences, and a loveless arranged marriage that holds one man captive. The pendulum swings fore and aft for over a decade to bring them together, tear them apart, and perhaps give them a second chance. Ms Lilley writes beautifully with great feeling and depth of realistic emotions in turmoil. Such is life… A book that reads smoothly and strongly. You will envision relationships of your own, perchance. A novel and a love story you don’t want to miss!”
