Publisher's Summary

The handsome and charismatic earl of Stratton, Caleb Ware, has been exposed to the ton for his clandestine affairs—by his own son. 

As a child, Devlin Ware thought his family stood for all that was right and good in the world. They were kind, gracious, and shared the beauty of Ravenwood, their grand country estate, by hosting lavish parties for the entire countryside. But at 22, he discovered his whole world was an elaborate illusion, and when Devlin publicly called his family to account for it, he was exiled as a traitor. 

So be it. He enlisted in the fight against Napoleon and didn't look back for six years. But now his father is dead, the Ware family is broken, and as the heir he is being called home. It's only when Gwyneth Rhys—the woman he loved and then lost after his family banished him—holds out her hand to help him that he is able make the difficult journey and try to piece together his fractured family. 

It is Gwyneth's loyalty, patience, and love that he needs. But is Devlin's war-hardened heart even capable of offering her love in return?

Long and Tedious

This book was mired with over description,, a somewhat unbelievable plotline, too little dialogue, and an actual lack of character growth even though that seems to be the purported intent of the author.
Most of the book was devoted to relieving characters of blame and heaping blame upon the father which was already obvious. The rest of the book seemed devoted to sermonizing about the nature of love rather than developing any sort of real plot. Needless to say I was very disappointed. I looked forward with pleasant anticipation to this novel, but I doubt if I continue with the intended series.

Bland

I have read Mary Balogh books for decades now, but am disappointed with the newer offerings. They lack the energy or dynamics that made the earlier books hard to put down.

Story is Good , But poorly Executed

OMG... this story took forever to go anywhere and I think could have been told in less than 200 pages with just 10 chapters.

Plodding and full of faux therapy speak

None of the humor or interest of earlier books. I can’t believe how boring this was. Or that I stuck it out to the end. What a disappointment. It was so relentlessly earnest and the conversations were scripted by some bad therapist.

Returning

I struggled REALLY hard with finishing this one. I will say I normally love Mary Balogh and will continue to buy her books, but this was Very Slow and I fell asleep multiple times. I sped up the playback just so I could finish it. If I am thinking "How much longer until this can be over?", then it's a return for me.

Great beginning to a new family saga

I love Mary Balogh’s books and the characters she creates and build during a series. I can tell that the Ravenswood series will be no exception. No real angst, just human fears and understandable hesitance and worries on the part of well-meaning lovers—and when read by Rosalyn Landor the experience is soothing and comforting and absolutely lovely!

Beginning a new series and laying groundwoek

I'm a fan of Mary Balough. This is a promising beginning for a new series. As this is the launch book, each of the characters who will tell their own stories in upcoming books must be introduced enough for readers to see the shape of their upcoming stories
The hero starts out as a relatively naive young man with an attractive innocence, dedication to duty and love of family that is sincere and enviable. Confronted with the truth of the essential hypocrisy of his father and the facade of perfect family he responds with dramatic and public outrage. He is exiled from his home by his mother. he responds to what he believes to be an unjust punishment by completely severing his ties with all members of his family except for his natural brother who joins him in exile. He morphs into much more complex man after his exile. The heroine is an enthusiastic slightly unconventional young woman.

Returning home after the death of his father he must decide how to relate to his mother and other family members who all have suffered as a result of his actions.

Serious Disappointment

I LOVE Mary Balogh’s books and think I have read most of them so was surprised and disappointed in this latest book. It’s not really a story so much as a lengthy and in-depth description of an estate, the people who live there, people of the village and planning a summer party. I was 3-1/2 hours into this description when I stopped and checked the reviews. As I said, I love Mary Balogh’s books so didn’t look at the reviews before purchasing. There is hardly any dialog and a great deal of repeating the same situation over and over. Part two spends a great deal of time rehashing part one, as if I hadn’t read that first so am wondering if this is to be two books? I don’t want to be disrespectful but this wasn’t the Mary Balogh I have always read and looked forward to. I will not be reading any more in this series. Those who are giving 5 stars and then proceeding to say how tedious the story was is not being fair to the author. I want her to know when I give her 4 or 5 stars for her story, I am being honest about it.

Nobody does it better

Mary Balogh is an immediate must buy for me and has been for over a decade. This book is one reason why. She never shies away from difficult topics and sets them in a far more realistic Regency setting than most of her contemporaries. I look forward to what she does with the rest of this family in the future.

Not the best Balogh book

I have read ALL Mary's novels and loved most of them so it's sad that I could not love this one. The writing is of course better than many others in this genre but I found the characters uninteresting. Indeed Devin came out quite boring and I did not warm to Gwyneth.

The incident which changed everything didn't happen until chapter 9 - so much description beforehand and much padding and repetition: the words 'just one day' said many times The scene with Devlin and the publican and his wife who combine to organise the village assembly is done in much detail- we know who will cook, who will pay, organise etc. A few pages later,Devlin explains exactly the same long details to Gwyneth. The point was for her to tell him how caring he was in relation to his father. We did not need all the details the second time round - a sentence might have sufficed.

I am on chapter 22 and will plough on because I have much admiration for Mary Balogh and hope the novel engages my interest more. If you loved this book, please remember it is my own opinion and that there are diffeent strokes for different folks.
