Katherine is a strong woman and has grown up with a faint taint of bitterness. She has held herself back from feelings and thrown herself into her work. There is a catharsis in the drawing and designing, keeping that small feeling of bitterness at bay. Her friends worry about her and would like to see her enjoying herself more. Until Nick contacts her for the home he wants built, she had not even realized that she still had feelings. As they come in contact, she finally realizes her feelings are just as deep and have not faded away as she had thought.
Nick is a very troubled young man. Very in love with Katherine in his youth, he has grown up and moved on. He has dated many of the great beauties of the land and is currently seeing one of them now. He is reasonably sure this is the woman for him, but when he is in close proximity to Katherine, he is no longer so sure.
This is a story about inner truth and strength, and yes romance as well. When life is more than what is expected and can twist even the smallest dreams, is there hope when it all crashes down? Sometimes even the brightest butterfly needs to escape and make its way. This is a story of that journey. Everything is not always what it seems.
This is a steady and well-written romance.The pace is a little slow, but smooth. It is about finding your strength and holding to who you are. Rosenberg has written a solid romance, with depth and thought. A great read for those looking for romance and just a bit of truth.
