Image of A Song at Twilight

Getting a second chance at love is a heartwarming theme, and readers often expect a tale of heartache and redemption. Though there are poignant moments, Sherwood’s characters lack strong passions and powerful emotions. The plot moves along at a steady pace, but just when it seems all’s well that ends well, Sherwood throws a wrench into the mix that adds chapters and a bit of mystery but little depth.

When they were young, aspiring singer Sophie Tresilian and promising architect Robin Pendarvis fell in love. Robin courted Sophie while working to restore the family estate into a hotel, and Sophie eagerly awaited his proposal. But Rob had a secret: He was married, though estranged from his wanton wife. When they meet again, Sophie is a famous songstress. This time, Sophie is ready to become Rob’s lover and give them the chance they never had — and Rob has the means to attain a divorce. Everything is perfect until they return from a tryst to learn his wife has been murdered. Now there are more trials to overcome, but this time Sophie and Rob will let nothing stand in their way.
