Pianist Rachel Campion runs out of her own wedding to an abusive man that she was being forced into marrying by her domineering mother. She ends up by chance at the estate of Orlando Winterton whom she had previously met once before. He offers her a place to stay while she sorts things out. Orlando is losing his eyesight, which he keeps a secret from everyone. On top of this, his ex-girlfriend surprises him with the news that he is supposedly the father to a baby boy, Felix, who she leaves with Orlando when she decides she can’t handle raising him on her own. Rachel stays on for awhile to help Orlando with Felix, and Rachel and Orlando find themselves growing closer together.

The story started off good and seemed interesting at first but the more it went it started to get tiresome. I did like Rachel and little baby Felix, but what brought the book down for me was Orlando. I can understand that losing one’s eyesight would be life-changing, but he acted as though it was life-ending. He thought he couldn’t be a father to his son, and therefore, refused to have anything to do with little Felix. He thought if he told Rachel he was losing his eyesight, she would want nothing to do with him. And on and on it went. The way he kept his failing eyesight a secret from everyone, when it was going to become known anyway, just got tedious after awhile. The more the story went, the more I lost interest. ( )
