Award-winning Broadway actress Leighanne Webster has it all until an on-stage panic attack brings her career crashing to the ground. Returning to England to help produce the annual Robin Hood Festival play could be the diversion Leighanne needs. But with ex-fiance, Jamison Blake, as the play's director, focusing on her new job won't be easy.
Breaking his engagement with Leighanne so she could pursue her dream of being a Broadway star was the hardest thing Jamison Blake ever did. When she returns to Nottingham, his heart insists he made a mistake. Can he convince her to give their relationship another try, or will he have to let her go again? This time forever.
This novella is a romance with strong Christian characters. I really like how Leighanne and Jamison pray and hear God's direction. The strength of this story, I think, is the location and all the interesting scenes around Nottingham and Sherwood Forest.
The story is that of a typical romance. Leighanne and Jamison have issues from their past and experience misunderstandings in the present. We wonder if they will get through it all to rekindle their romance. It seemed to me the ending came way to quickly for the plot line. We readers don't really know if Leighanne and Jamison can build a future together (as the meme to the side asks) because the novella ends without letting us know.
This novella would be a good choice for a quick read, especially if you don't mind not knowing how the couple will work everything out in the coming days and years.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
