  • Too long a journey

    I have previously read at least 3 of Mimi Matthews books, loved all of them, giving each of them 5 star reviews. I'm sorry to say but that is not the case here. I really liked her 2 main characters in Tom and Jenny. I was immediately immersed in the book. Started reading it and couldn't put it down. But it seemed to be the journey that would never end. I know that Miss Matthews actually was trying to show the reality of what the journey to India entails. But it was too long, too wordy, too repetitive. I mean how many times are you going to say, I want you but won't ruin you. The story itself I liked. But as I said it took too long to get there. I look forward to Archer's story.

  • Prepare to be amazed

    England, 1859 I felt as if I had tumbled back into one of the great classic novels with such amazing prose that I felt transported to that time and place. The descriptions of the characters and their dialogue came off the page opened up my mind. After reading the first book in this series, I could not wait to read this one and it pulled me in quickly. Fortuitously, Jenny Holloway, a former ladies maid now had some funds to become independent. She had dreamed of seeing the world and having an adventure outside of England. But she also wanted to find out what happened to her friend the Earl of Castleton by going to India. So she first had to go the her solicitor Tom Finchley to release the funds. Tom is taken with Jenny and sees her as a kindred spirit and friend and decides spontaneously to escort her on her journey! Thus starts the building of a wonderful friendship of two people who did not grow up in the best of circumstances but have found themselves enjoying each other and life. This book pulled me with the brilliant words of this author who has created a lovely romance that took it's time to build which was all the more sweet. I highly recommend and know that you wil thank me once you have turned the last page!

  • A new favorite!

    Well written, great story, well worth the read. Jenny longs for adventure and freedom to fulfill her own destiny. Unlikely as it seems in Victorian England, Jenny served as a companion to Lady Helena for many years helping her to escape an evil guardian and marry her love. To show her appreciation, Lady Helena settles a modest comptence on Jenny. Jenny takes the money and runs literally. The story follows her journey to India in search of her friends missing brother as she travels through India and Egypt finding her Independence and, of course, her true love, along the way.

  • A refreshing stand against traditional conventions

    An honestly refreshing take on a woman craving adventure in a time before it was socially acceptable. Jenny decides to take a journey now that she has the means and Tom can't just let her go on her own. He resolves to let her have her independence, within reasonable limits, without forcing her steps. Along the way, a friendship develops with a slow burn for more, though both commit to exploring each other with no strings attached. Neither Jenny or Tom want to change who they are for the other person, but they learn they can't live without the other person either. It takes them traveling to the other side of the world to realize their most important top priorities. Candid conversations about heart's desires, raw passion and adventures in traveling around the world make this a must read. The characters stayed with me for days afterwards, which to me, marks a well written story. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
