What a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful book. A coming-of-age story handled with grace and poise. It almost doesn't read like a HQN but a full-fledged novel and so it got to deal with tragedy, pain, strength and love with due attention and detail. This is the second book I've read by Donna Huxley and like the first one, the business aspect is detailed to the point where it reads like an autobiography, the book is so informative and so thrilling. For people who get bored by trivialities of everyday life, this book mightn't be that good a read, but I loved the fact that the heroine was educated and independent (she was an engineer) and also the challenge the h faced, the marketing genius and H's support. I have a very strong suspicion that the author (male or female) actually worked as an executive and didn't just assume what they do. The pace of the story is slower than usual and things take time to be set up but it is highly recommended for those who love strong heroines, strong heroes and rising-of-the-phoenix-from-the-ashes kind of storiesP.S I would recommend you disregard the cover and just picture the H/h since the story doesn't focus too much on look but more so on personalities.
