Set in the little known Louisiana Bayou which the author brings vividly to life I thoroughly enjoyed this highly original background. Pleasingly the medical detail was that little bit different too.
Justin has regrets about his behaviour in the past and has no intention of remaining here but he had great depth of character and you could empathise with him.
Mellette was a strong, modern woman, likable although perhaps just a bit too forthright.
We get to meet Mellette's family some of whom will feature in future books.
Although as is usual in the circumstances I feel where the widowed heroine has loved deeply before there is always a whiff of "second-best" involved and I would have liked the romance element a bit more to the forefront my interest was held throughout and I thoroughly enjoyed this .
