    Historical Romance

    Have you ever read a book and found yourself immersed in and almost part of the story? That is what happened to me while reading the story of Alya and Henry. Why? Well, there was much that correlated with and paralleled my own story. In what ways you ask? Well…I married and moved to a foreign country, a country where the native tongue was not my own, where food was different, where culture was very different and where I was and will always be considered “ajnabeeyee” - or – foreign. Miscommunication can happen easily and in a marriage of two dissimilar cultures both husband and wife must want the marriage to work and then make sure that there is open honest communication and trust and commitment. As Alya and Henry found out…it is not always easy and pain can and will occur if for any reason one or more of these needed aspects of marriage are missing. This is a story of a man who has suffered much and in so doing has changed in many ways but who has also managed to retain his honor. It is a story of a woman raised in Cairo who leaves but is unsure of what her future holds in store for her. It is a story of love that grows and a relationship that needs to be nurtured. It is also a story of pain of some sort for just about everyone in the story. And, it is a story of family – a strong family that starred in the previous four books and emerged again in the finale of the series strong and loving and all that family should be. I loved this book for many reasons. I moved from California to the Middle East when I married and so understand Alya perhaps better than some might who read this book. It hits home in so many ways…both my home of birth and the one I moved to and now live in (Lebanon). And, the truths in this story are many if the reader is willing to see them and one of the most compelling is that no matter what their ethnicity or religious beliefs people are much the same and both good or bad and ugly spirited are found in throughout history and all cultures. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books-Lyrical Press for the ARC – This is my honest review.

    Love this historical romance!

    Releasing Henry by Sarah Hegger is a fabulous historical romance. I'm giving this book five stars, only because I can't give it six. Ms Hegger has penned a stunning story and stuffed it full of phenomenal characters. I can't say enough good things about the characters in this book, they're that amazing. Henry and Alya's story has drama, action, sizzle and suspense and kept this reader glued to her kindle. I love, love, love this book, even though I may have needed a tissue once or twice. It was a pleasure to read Releasing Henry and I can't wait to read more from Sarah Hegger in the future. Releasing Henry is part of the Sir Arthur's Legacy Series, but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.
