Forever and a Day (The Rumor)

1 rating: 5.0
A book

Dear Reader,   I love New York City.  The people are damn serious about the way they live life.  They work hard and play hard and needless to say, it got me thinking. Were the people of New York City just as hard core back in 1830 … see full wiki

Will I be the same person inside, if I change how I appear on the outside?

When you come from poverty and live with it every day of your life, it becomes not only who you are but how you survive.  For Georgia Milton a young widow makes her life thrive by doing tasks for others in the rugged streets of early 1800’s New York.  Survival is an existence but dreams are never forgotten and Georgia is determined to pursue hers.  When she meets what she knows is a British aristocrat she tries to lose him knowing nothing good will come of this relationship.  The circumstances that take this man from an unknown annoyance to living in her house still baffles Georgia but she is nothing if not responsible.

 

The man no longer knows his true name and thinks himself to be “Robinson Crusoe” which is even remotely possible.  All this memory loss is due to an unfortunate accident, which Georgia feels was her fault since it occurred while he was defending her honor.  There are many things she does not know but this man but Georgia believes there is a family looking for him.  He is too refined and cultured to not have people that care for his existence, and want him back despite her not wanting to let him go.  Georgia shows him how to survive on the streets where staying alive when the sun goes down is not as easy as it should be.  “Robinson” adapts to his life with Georgia and each day finds them more than emotionally bound, as it is almost magical when they kiss.

 

Both Georgia and “Robinson” have dark secrets and hidden pain they keep tucked away so no one can see.  They have the ability to heal and soothe the ache they both long for in a relationship but will that be allowed to happen.  When the knock on the door comes with men who know, who “Robinson” really is and where he truly belongs, will he be able to keep the life he quickly created with Georgia or does his real life completely collide with hers?  Both are up for a challenge but each wonders what decision is right – stay together or separate.

 

When a reader seeks historically accurate, romantically inclined, and dramatic excitement, always pick up a Delilah Marvelle book.  This new series starts off with a jolt, taking the reader on a fast paced ride with so much going on you think you might get lost but Ms. Marvelle writes a tale so deep with description and detail you never miss a beat except maybe a few of your own heart beats as you prepare for the next adventure.

Will I be the same person inside, if I change how I appear on the outside? Will I be the same person inside, if I change how I appear on the outside? Will I be the same person inside, if I change how I appear on the outside?
