This was such an emotional book. I enjoyed every second of it! ( )

Incredible! I don't know which book I liked more: this one or Paradise. Zack and Julie made this story such an amazing rollercoster of emotions from one chapter to the next. There were times that I was dying form all the romance and the sexiness between those two, and then I wanted to throw my Kindle so far into the wall from frustration at the whole story. The ending was awesome! Amazing! ( )

I feel as if I have finished a great emotional journey. Defiantly a great book from my favorite author. The book was just perfect as the title is. It is surly a 5 star book but I rated it 4 star because of the last dragging part, but surly I must tell u all, that just for the last part u should not miss the whole book bcoz I didn't. My favorite part of this book was the letters by Zack and Julie there were tears in my eyes when I read those. If u are planning to read this book then please go ahead u won’t regret. ( )

A satisfying read. The story is sweet and the characters are charming. However, just like the first book, Paradise, the plot starts to wane just before the end. ( )

Dit boek is met liefde en begrip opgedragen aan die miljoenen Amerikaanse vrouwen die dit of welk ander boek niet kunnen lezen. Vrouwen die door omstandigheden in hun jeugd het plezier en de waardigheid te kunnen lezen, hebben moeten ontberen. En het is opgedragen aan de speciale, zorgzame mensen die hun tijd en inspanning hebben gegeven aan het programma "Alfabetisme". Geef het door.
This book is dedicated with love and understanding to those millions of American women who cannot read it or any other book, women whose childhood circumstances have deprived them of the adult pleasure, and the dignity, of being able to read.  And it is dedicated to the special, caring people who've given their time and efforts to the "Literacy. Pass It On." program.
First words
(Prologue 1976) Margaret Stanhope stood at the doors that opened onto the veranda, her aristocratic features set into an icy mask as she watched her butler pass a tray of drinks to her grandchildren who had just returned for the summer holidays from their various private schools.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0671795538, Mass Market Paperback)

A rootless foster child, Julie Mathison had blossomed under the love showered upon her by her adoptive family. Now a lovely and vivacious young woman, she was a respected teacher in her small Texas town, and she passionately lived her ideals. Julie was determined to give back all the kindness she'd received; nothing and no one would ever shatter the perfect life she had fashioned.

Zachary Benedict was an actor/director whose Academy Award-winning career had been shattered when he was wrongly convicted of murdering his wife. After the tall, ruggedly handsome Zack escaped from a Texas prison, he abducted Julie and forced her to drive him to his Colorado mountain hideout. She was outraged, cautious, and unable to ignore the instincts that whispered of his innocence. He was cynical, wary, and increasingly attracted to her. Passion was about to capture them both in its fierce embrace...but the journey to trust, true commitment, and proving Zack's innocence was just beginning....
