FROM GLOWING EMBERS – EMILIE RICHARDS (Tales of the Pacific series)
First published in 1988 this is an oldie but goodie; first of four books series. This is a story of second chances after confronting the past. A decade filled with suffering, misunderstandings, guilt, and anger. A love that came too soon for a couple not ready for it. The writing makes you feel. I was drawn into the story. I felt involved in their life and also felt their grief. This is the first book of Emilie Richards that I have read. I really enjoyed it. I look forward to reading future books by her.
