Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. When Lady Johanna learned that she was a widow, she vowed she would. I'm not a big reader of historical romances, but Julie Garwood was one of the first romance authors I read years ago so she holds a special place in my heart.
I'm going to drop my rating because of the pacing at first and the lackluster epilogue, but otherwise it was 3.

I'm going to drop my rating because of the pacing at first and the lackluster epilogue, but otherwise it was a solid HR read! Johanna is a young English widow that is in need of a new husband to protect her from the King. Gabriel is in need of having the rites to the land that should be his but is in the possession of Johanna from her dead husband, so they agree to marry.
It is obvious to Gabriel that Johanna's past husband didn't treat her right, so he instantly goes into protective mode with her.
Johanna feels free for the first time and has to learn to truly be herself. There is some clan and country drama, a few sexy times, and some sweet scenes POV: This alternated between focusing on Johanna mainly and Gabriel in 3rd person narrative, but does focus on some other side characters.
Overall Pace of Story: Good. I never skimmed and I thought it flowed well.
The beginning did start out rather slow though and I found it hard to keep my interest. Instalove: No, they take a little while to develop stronger feelings. H rating: 4.

Character analysis[ edit ] Because of the mythic quality of the script, sometimes the players in the performance often resemble " archetypes instead of characters. Orpheus is an archetype for strong human emotion and expressing it through poetry and music. Music is related to Orpheus' ability to move only forward in time, along with his feelings and mortal love. Although they can repeat, as they do in the scene several times, they cannot turn back completely and be the same.
Zimmerman includes with the line, "Is this a story about how time can only move in one direction? With the Therapist bringing a glimpse of Freudian psychoanalysis , Phaeton's relationship with his father can be seen in new ways: "the father is being asked to perform an initiation rite, to introduce his son to society, [and] to inscribe him in a symbolic order.
The character Eros, although he attains many of the traits of the more popularized Cupid , is meant to symbolize more.
In the play, "A", Psyche, interprets why "Q", Eros, is presented as naked, winged, and blindfolded: he is naked to make our feelings transparent, he is winged so he might fly from person to person, and he is blindfolded to encourage us to see into each other's hearts. Readers Theater generally follows the "presentational" form of theater, rather than representational, often relying on narrators to bring insight from an outside perspective to a character. The presentational aspect creates a direct link between the audience and the narrator.
Readers Theater reduces theatrical devices, such as costumes, sets, and props, to concentrate on the story and the language.The men in her life are often thinking that she is purposely acting dumb in order to achieve her purpose.
He caught her staring at him. But that was the case with author, Julie Garwood. I have to have some happy right now and this book is it. I really liked him.
