My Thoughts
Monique Domovitch has clearly shown herself to be a shining star within the genre of Romance. This captivating read provides it's audience a front row seat from which to witness the drama that seems to permeate the lives of both Alex Ivanov and Brigitte Dartois.
Though each tale presents a separate story told from both a different vantage point as well as from opposite sides of the globe; the haunting shades of despair and desperation coupled with fiery hues of passion, hope, and determination paint a picture of lives that the mind's eye must see to believe.
The seemingly endless reserves of emotionality found in this work, coupled with the complexity of an ever evolving plot, is reminiscent of  masterpieces penned by long-standing greats such as Danielle Steele and Sidney Sheldon.
 It is hard to believe that this is Ms. Domovitch's first novel.  I am happy to confidently predict that with talent such as this, it is far from her last.
