Review: The Gable Faces East by Anita Stansfield
Author: Anita Stansfield
Publisher: Covenant Communications
A Sweeping Historical Drama of Love, Hate, Revenge, and Destiny.
When Jess Davies and Alexandra Byrnehouse meet, they unwittingly take on decades of mistrust, deception, and deep betrayals of the heart. Together they are confronted with arson and murder as they discover unbelievable secrets that first bind them to each other, then tear them apart. If they are to survive, they must learn that passions cannot be chosen-and only the most perfect love can heal the deepest scars.
Oh my goodness, this book was amazing! I'd read the subsequent books about 8 yrs ago, but I hadn't read this prequel yet. It was everything I was hoping for. Australian men in the outback on a horse ranch?! Say no more! I've always been intrigued by Australia and I love a good romance.
This book is so full of drama, mystery, hurt, and an undying love. I was gripped at every page. I wanted more and the author gave it to me. I love period drama's and this delivered on so many levels. The characters are very well developed. It is like you know them on every level possible. They are so well rounded. I've also fallen in love with Jess. He is a man among men! Swoon!
I always think proper romance novels are too short, this series proves to be THE best I've ever read! You MUST read it!
"You can't possibly train a horse in skirts," he stated with a demeaning tone, as if it fully represented a problem."
"I don't intend to," she retorted, and again his left eyebrow went up. "f you had any sense, Mr. Davies, you would concentrate more on my abilities than my apparel."
