    • 2 1/2 stars. Such a sad sad heroine. She was married to an utter brute. I enjoyed her transformation and the return of love to her life but oh, what she endured. The children were portrayed very well, very authentically I thought.



    • I have enjoyed a number of Mary Balogh's novels. Unfortunately, this one was not one of them. I was really enthused to read this one. The major problem that I had with this novel is that our two characters spent at least half of the novel, angry at or almost hating each other. While this is not an unusual format for romance novels, it is one of my least favorite.I sympathized with the hardships of Christina's former life, I quickly tired of the way she and Gerard behaved toward each other. I als [...]


    • Often frustrating, Confusing, but ultimately a pretty good storyThe writing style is great, as usual, and I like the fact that this isn't one of Balogh's overly-expansive series novel that just seem to be all over the place. It has excellent focus on the primary story at hand. It is no spoiler to say that the hero is bitter and hateful of the heroine because she threw him over ten years earlier to marry a richer man with a title, and also a man whom the hero despised. What is unendingly frustrat [...]


    • * "The Last Waltz" at the Thornwood estate Xmas week house party ball is promised by the two-years widowed Countess to the new Earl, who ran away and made his fortune in Canada when she rejected him a decade before, for the heir at that time. Is this a Regency romance or a heartfelt exposition of abuse or healing? Mary Balogh narrates about the two central characters by turn, building up to the (by then obvious to me) explanations of betrayal and transformation. The formerly dancing debutante is [...]


    • 3 to 3.5 starsIt was actually pretty dark for a Regency romance set during Christmas. A lot of important things are explored in it, however, but I do feel the need to add trigger warnings for graphic descriptions of domestic and child abuse. If those trigger you, I would suggest not reading this one. Besides that, I loved the character development of Christina, Gerard, and even Rachel (Christina's oldest daughter). Balogh always does a great job with characterization, and the way they grow to lo [...]


    • Early Mary Balogh and working in a much shorter form so everything happens in a compressed time frame. Since the two main characters knew each other a decade ago, that works to have them at odds and then in agreement. Christina loved Gerard but dumped him for his titled cousin. Ten years and two daughters later she's a widow and Gerard inherits the title.He returns to his estate before his guests for a planned Christmas house party. He finds an aunt, a cousin and Christina with her daughters. Th [...]


    • Although it took me a while to get into this one, I found it both interesting and not at all what I would have expected after reading the first few chapters. The reader watches Christina blossom slowly after having been restrained for years by an abusive husband, now dead. At times, it is frustrating that she reacts so slowly to her new freedom. At others, it is very believable that it should take so long to realize she is free.


    • There is no author of romance who comes even close to Mary Balogh in her understanding and knowledge of the human heart. I don't know how Balogh does it, but she nearly always manages to pull me right into the story in the first few pages and I can't stop reading until it's finished. Very few other romance authors do this so consistently and so well.


    • Sweet little Christmas story in the true tradition of the seasonal romance. Slight religious "meaning of Christmas" overtones, forgiveness and whatnot but nothing obtrusive. The children in it were lovely.
