    A story of triumph over tragedy

    This well written novelette expresses so much pain and emotion that at times it was difficult to read. Unless a person has gone through the kind of trauma experienced by Lady Lettie (not necessarily war, but a life event that changes your whole world view) it is difficult to identify with her. As a facilitator of support groups, I have seen that different types of trauma have similar effects on people, as was shown both by Lettie and Daniel, the Duke of Linwood. An interesting aspect in Daniel's experience is the catalyst it provided for him to change and turn his life around. Despite a broken engagement and Lettie's marriage to Gregory, neither Lettie nor Daniel were able to dispel the links of friendship forged when they were children and as Lettie returns to London after the death of her husband on the battleground of Waterloo, it is that friendship that motivated Daniel to do everything in his power to bring healing and to protect her. I loved the character that Daniel became and the caring compassion he developed as a result of witnessing a hideous crime. One couldn't help but feel Lettie's pain and the difficulty she had adjusting to life back in London after 6 years of living on the battlefields of Europe. When one has had to scrimp and make do under the harshest of circumstances, it isn't easy to throw off the yoke of responsibility and just let go and enjoy oneself without feeling guilt and shame. The book came to a tender close and gave me a sense of satisfaction knowing that Lettie had found new purpose and a reason for living.

    For the Love of a Widow

    A very touching story. War is a abstract for most people today. I hope readers will enjoy the romance of this story, but more important I hope they will get a better understanding of the effect of war on families and a respect for our military.

    For the love of a widow

    Good for the most part. Felt a bit rushed at end.
