"Love, Ever Strong" is the story of a love which begins in childhood but doesn't reach fruition until years later. It's also a story of healing and change. Rose and Conor were orphans who were raised together as friends and playmates since she was 2 and he a boy of 10. When Conor is 16, he leaves their rural home to find his way in the world, not expecting to see Rose ever again. Twenty years later, their paths cross again, but life has treated them each very differently. Battle-weary and motivated by revenge, Conor is nothing like the heroic figure of her romantic girlhood memories; or is he? And Rose is no longer the little girl who used to follow him around everywhere. She's a widow with three young children who will surprise him in more ways than one.
Love Ever Strong is the 5th book in Henry’s romance novella collection. As a reader, It takes a lot to get me to swoon and get lost in anything romance, but Henry makes me do just that with her sweet tale of “love fruition”. Rose and Conor’s love tale is sweet, unique and fabulous!
As for the writer in me, Henry’s writing is once again smooth and poetic. Her characters are to fall in love with, well written with the perfect amount of everything. The only distraction was Henry transitioning as she skipped through the story in hours, minutes and years. As a reader and a writer, I found it a little off-putting. It was not THAT off-putting that it dissuaded me from the story at all though as I fell deeper and deeper in love with everything and everyone in this book.
