    Lovely Historical Fiction!

    "One should not accept an apology until one is prepared to consign the offense to the past." Army nurse Jenny Bennett can scarcely believe her eyes when they land upon a ghost from her past, Lieutenant Ryan Gallagher, the man who broke her heart and apparently pawned it off to the highest bidder. It didn't seem like something he would do, but the polite, controlled officer standing before her with a young daughter, barely resembles the man whom she patiently nursed back to health, and with whom she subsequently shared her dreams. One fateful evening, he pressed his father's watch into her hand as a promise of his affections, and disappeared; and save one curious letter severing their relationship, and six long years of silence, Jenny was left to live her life with no explanations. Having served his country in a capacity that only those at the very top were aware of, former Naval Officer Ryan Gallagher has returned to California, hoping to train a brilliant civilian in the art of subterfuge so that he can build a quiet life as an oyster farmer. He needs Jenny's expert nursing skills to manage the young man's opium addiction, so that Finn can pass a series of rigorous examinations, absolving Ryan of future deployments; giving him the chance to start over, possibly with Jenny, if she can ever forgive him. It's not going to be easy, for although Jenny is kind, compassionate, and determined, he broke her trust; which because of her past, she rarely gives away to anyone. In essence, this is a book about forgiveness, and it's extremely well written. After all, forgiveness is a choice, albeit a very difficult one, but a choice nonetheless. Will Ryan and Jenny have the courage to make the right one? I was given a copy of this book from the publisher. The opinions stated above are entirely my own.

    great book

    Ms. Camden took one nurse, one supposedly treasonous soldier, and a little girl to write a story of love so poignant that I couldn't put it down. Even though I don't generally care for war era (any war) stories, this one kept me engaged and interested that I didn't much notice the war references. I received this book free from the publisher/author. The above review is my honest opinion.
