Everything about this story is lovely and near perfect.
After six years, Benedict Harper realizes he may have lost the use of his legs, but not his mind or heart. When he encounters widow Samantha McKay, she is fleeing domineering in-laws who threaten to lock her away. Samantha wants to travel to Wales where she has a small cottage. Benedict agrees to be her escort. Samantha craves the freedom to “dance though life” again. The forced proximity of the journey provides the time for Benedict and Samantha to form a relationship. There are issues to work through and fears to face, but together they have the power to do so. (DELL, Jul., 416 pp., $7.99)
