"Trust is a choice. I choose to trust your love . . . "

"there is no such thing as courage in the absence of cowardice. Courage is also a choice: It's what happens when one refuses to give in to fear [ . . . ] Your trust gives me courage."


Sigh, so much heart-hurt for Bryony and Leo. Both made choices that ultimately were so harmful - to one another and to themselves. But not mistakes that I believe were unforgivable, just really difficult to navigate. Reading the MCs coming back together was achingly satisfying. I was always about to faint, overcome with despair, while reading Not Quite a Husband. It was so good and I feel that the pain has - a mystical way that only novels are capable of - enriched my life as a reader and I am better for having read it.

I keep thinking back to a scene where, in the present, Leo is remembering The Day Bryony Asked for an Annulment, and how he had brought a telescope home for her - unknowing that his wife was about to request an annulment - and as Bryony lays out her reasoning for why she is asking for The Annulment, he thinks to himself how she was no longer worth any effort he could possibly make. And it hurt so much to read someone reach that point. And it was made especially painful because the readers knows WHY Bryony has been so miserable their entire marriage, but Leo does not.

Some things did take me out of my reading experience, though. For one, the age of the two MCs during the "present" timeline. Leo is 28ish and Bryony is 32ish . . . which felt still too young to believe they've had so much more life experience AND maturity in only 3 years. However, their ages during the "past" timeline worked for me - they really were so young (23 and 27ish) and it made sense that they just did not have the tools to communicate with one another about their hopes, fears, disappointments, etc. . . and when they reconnect just a few years after the annulment, I'd rather have seen a "10 years later" situation.

I also felt the sex with a sleeping person just seemed a bit kookie? The first book in this series, Delicious, had some magical realism with the food and so I wonder if the somnophilia was, like, the magical realism in this book? It felt like Thomas was unable to commit to it - and maybe it would have been too Cronenberg-esque to expect an author to really flollow-thru with that kink. Finally, the English colonists in India during an uprising wasn't great. ( )

I have no idea how to rate this book. Somewhere between Thrown Up Against the Wall - through to - Recommend to My Grandmother.



Ugh, this book. ( )

Paltry communication for the majority of the book, but it's one of the things they work on, so at least it's acknowledged. I really liked the love the characters had for each other, even separated, but it did feel like if 30 different things hadn't aligned just so- that they would have just remained apart and heartbroken for the rest of their lives! Which isn't my preference, I prefer the 'love will always find a way' sort. =P This did hold my interest though, and besides a little dragging near the end it kept a good pace. Additional small things I liked, hero's childhood crush, woman doctor, younger hero, setting outside the U.K., the heroine being the frosty one instead of the hero for a change, and a bit of danger.

Beautiful book. I'm not sure I can do it justice in a review, so I'm going to let my thoughts percolate a bit before I try. ( )

This book wasn't for me. I just couldn't get in to it.

Prologue
In the course of her long and illustrious career, Bryony Asquith was the subject of numerous newspaper and magazine articles, almost all of which described her appearance as distinguished and unique, and unfailingly commented upon the dramatic streak of white in her midnight dark hair.
