One note, this book can be a stand alone, but it refers heavily to events in 'Way of an Eagle', so if you plan on reading a few of her books you might want to read that one to get the background.

I find the main heroin Olga to be endearing with a lovable stubborn streak of 'cussedness' as my Dad would have said.
Max, on the other hand, not so much... he seems too stern in the beginning, you have a hard time divining exactly how much he does care for Olga. (Which is a GREAT deal)

The scene of her berry picking...*swoon* love it. It does have a dated image of addiction and mental illness in this, i.e. if the mother had it the daughter is doomed to hopeless madness.

There is a affecting scene where Olga tries to assist her best friend and ends up starting a tragic chain of events that follow her for the rest of her life.
Villain Herman-Goring is weaselly and slimy, just as would befit a villain.

I have loved E.M. Dell for over 20 years when I accidentally stumbled across it in a box of my Dad's school things, it had been required in a high school class. The book was 'Way of an Eagle', by the third page I was hooked, certainly it is not Shakespeare, but it engendered in me such a interest that I ended up scouring antique malls and stacks in the library to find all of her books.
I am now the proud owner of all of her books in hardback.

You will find some fascinating glimpses of the period in her books, as well as a substantial dose of romance and adventure. Hope you enjoy reading these as much as I have.
Despite being touted as Christian, do not let that put you off, almost every person was in that era, and including Biblical references was a sop to over zealous mothers and pastors to make such romance perceived palatable and wholesome.

mIni-Like
This is another great Christian love story by Ethel M. Dell. I really enjoyed it. This novel reintroduces some characters from The Way of An Eagle, another love story by this author. I would recommend reading The Way of An Eagle first to be familiar with the characters. The Keeper of The Door is about a very young woman who is in love with two men who are brothers. It is very exciting in parts and very heart-rending in parts. It takes place in England and India, and I find it interesting to read about the cultural differences in this time period. I highly recommend this novel.

Excellent plot witty dialogue. It all here for those who value excellent literature. A nice love story. Would have liked a little longer ending but it was still week done.

More "Rear Window" with Alfred Hitchcock than Grace Livingston Hill. Not a book I could read at one sitting. Excellent writing. I wouldn't put this as Christian Romance,although it does ask the question what happens after a person dies as well as make references to the Bible and a child says bedtime prayers.

I've read it many times before, but have to read it again. I first stumbled on it in an old apartment I rented. The bind is in such poor shape, I had to download this to spare it. Great read.
