Al is the black sheep of his family, Kate, the good shepherd of hers. Can black and white become silver, or just a dark and dangerous grey?
Alastair Black has revealed a secret to his wife in a last ditch attempt to save his marriage. A return to his childhood family home at Chathill Farm is his only respite, although he is far from welcomed back by brother George.
Kate, recently widowed and increasingly put upon by daughter, sister and mother, feels her life is over at fifty. Until she meets Alastair. He’s everything she isn’t, but he’s a troubled soul, a sad clown of a man with a shady past. When his famous mother leaves an unexpected inheritance, Kate is caught up in the unravelling of his life as Al comes to terms with who he really is.
Is Alastair Black her true soulmate, or should Sleeping Beauty lie?
This publication is written in British English. Spellings and grammatical conventions are conversant with the UK.
Al has lost everything. He just lost his house, his marriage has fallen apart and now he must go to the one place he hasn’t been in 15 yrs. Kate lost her husband over a year ago. Though she lost him she isn’t as upset as everyone assumes. She decides to vacation at her sister in laws house to escape all the reminders of her dead husband. That is where Al and Kate meet. Though Al has brought his haughty girlfriend there is an attraction between Kate and Al that can’t be denied. Though they have a strong connection the secrets they both hold could destroy any possible relationship. Can Al and Kate find the love they both want and never had or will the skeletons come out and kill any prospect of love.
This was a sweet love story with a lot of twists. I really enjoyed the characters of Al and Kate. It was definitely a story where you could see the influence each character had on the other. The twists added a wonderful element with the development of their love story. Though the story was good, it was a bit difficult at times with the British English. I have read books with the use of British English before but there were a lot of things that I couldn’t interpret. Overall, it was a great book even with the few confusing British English/American English terms. The story was strong and the love natural. You will definitely love Al and Kate.
