    I love this author!! But this book is horrible. I got half way through and decided life is too short to read something that was driving me crazy. I live in Tucson, and often go to Oracle. When there is a fire the female is asleep and barely escapes with her life. However she is able to go back and get her car, no mention of how she got the keys to start it. All of a sudden Bennie is waiting in a bar for Edward, how was Bennie contacted? This book takes place prior to cell phones and computers due to several references. But the final thing that sent me over the edge was the comment that they would have to spend the night in Tucson because it was such a long drive back to Oracle. It is a little over an hour at the very most. If one of them was too tired to drive, the other one could have. If you want accuracy and common sense don't read this book. I will continue to read books by this author. She obviously had a horrible editor for this one.

    I have almost every paperback book by Sala/McCall and I have replaced almost fifty in Kindle, thus far, so I am obviously a fan of her writing. Being a fan does not mean I can't be objective, however; I have no hesitation in giving a favourite writer a bad review if I hate one of his or her books. I read 'Legend' when it first came out and loved it, so I wondered if it would stand the test of time. To me, it does.The hero and heroine are extremely likeable. Joseph is pretty much a perfect human being. He made mistakes when he was younger but has matured into a sensitive, selfless, loving person. Raine seems a bit more flawed because she isn't entirely honest with Joseph, at first, but she has had a difficult life and is coping the best way that she can. Raine's depiction is realistic because she has the same immediate reactions to her situation as most of Sala's readers would. She is angry, at times bitter, she rails against the burdens God has given her, she feels abandoned and unloved, and she has lost hope. Then she rises above those feelings and determines to live the rest of her life with acceptance, love, peace and joy. Sala has written her hero and heroine as ordinary people who face the problems they have been given and become better people for it. Although there is a supernatural element that is part of Joseph's heritage, it is just another facet of his humanity and decency; he is a good, grounded person, with or without that element in the story.Sala's depiction of Joseph's brother, Benny, is another one of her superb characterizations. Just as the reader starts to hate Benny, he shows a decent streak. This happens more than once, and the reader sees the struggle Benny has in trying to overcome his weaknesses, and they are weaknesses. Benny isn't evil, he knows when he is wrong, he vacillates between doing the right thing and becoming the person he wants to be, or taking the easy way out for material gain. He wants respect but is still learning that it has nothing to do with how much he has, but how he acts and lives his life. Sala does a brilliant job of garnering sympathy for Benny, while still revealing his many character flaws.On the other hand, Sala's characterization of the villain demonstrates the evil inherent in those whom wealth and power have corrupted. We can't pity this villain because he has no morals, has no boundaries, thinks he is entitled to whatever he wants and is so selfish, that nothing and no one matters except his own desires. It isn't that he is evil because he has wealth and power, but that they have corrupted him.Some of Sala's books are pure escapist romantic suspense, while others, like this one, have a deeper message. There are moments when this book has tearjerker scenes, such as the burial of Raine's and Joseph's baby, but the overall theme is one of hope, love and redemption. Sala manages to depict the reality of life, such as death, grief and loneliness, but she offers hope and optimism at the same time; her characters always have their 'happily ever after', despite what they may have gone through.This is not a clean read. I wouldn't hesitate to let my granddaughter read it, but those offended by language and sex scenes won't be happy with it. It isn't a particularly hot read, either, so those readers who only want a lot of very hot sex scenes would be disappointed. I think the story has universal appeal but it isn't for everyone. I definitely recommended it, though.

    I love anything written by Dinah McCall/Sharon Sala. This one got me from the first page to the last. It is a fantasy of sort, but had me believing by the last page. Don't miss it.
