Heartwarming Romance With Characters You Will Love. Oct 14, 2009
The author did a good job of developing the characters so you really cared about them and felt you knew them.I love ready-made family romances and this one is a very good one. I loved the story of widowed Claire with her young son going to stay with her grandmother in Romeo Colorado,and the development of the romance between Claire and the doctor Stephen Reyes,was very sweet and satisfying.
Tossing Pebbles Mar 23, 2009
Professor Claire is trying to rebuild her life following her husband's death. For her son's sake, she's trying to hold everything together. She's perfectly happy without a relationship. Enter Dr. Stephen Reyes. As a relationship grows, Claire's son Graeme will have to adjust.
One of Gwen's strengths was painting the love story Claire had already lived--that of her relationship with her late husband Rob. The author realistically portrayed Claire's past and her reasons for resisting a relationship. I also appreciated the relationship Stephen had with his neighbors, who acted like parental figures--watching out for him, etc.
And what is a Romeo story without some pebbles tossed against the window??
This was a well-written romance which will delight the romantic of heart. Bravo Gwen and Summerside Press!
Genuine love Feb 11, 2009
This novel is the genuine article in terms of story line, characterization, and integrity. Part of the joy of reading this romance novel was the realistic decriptions of rural life and people. Ultimately the gentle weaving of human relationships with our relationship to God's love revealed great insight, and made this story very pleasurable. I look forward to reading more by this young author.

Awesome Story Jan 5, 2009
I enjoyed this story very much. The characters are realistic and very likable. I particularly like Abuelita, she is a very colorful character while at the same time she is an inspiration in faith. Claire and Stephen are both strong characters on a spiritual quest. They each have fears to overcome and they end up learning to trust both love and God. I am happy that the story closed with the marriage of their good friends as opposed to their own wedding.
