Promise Me Forever by Lorraine Heath
"Promise Me Forever" is another great one by Lorraine Heath. She's one of my fav historical authors right now. I just love how her stories tend to be character driven and the charcters are great & well-developed. Her books are also big on emotions. This one was no different. I think the author was a little influenced by "Persuasion" by Jane Austen. The main story takes place in England, but the flashbacks take place in Texas. The hero & heroine first met when they were both living in Texas when she was 14 & he was 16. Young love bloomed, but then the heroine's mother married an English nobleman and moved the family to England. The mother burned all the hero's unopened letters so both thought the other had lost interest. It's a great story about reunited lovers and the change from young love to a more mature love.
