Book Review: For Love of Sarah by Hazel Statham

Regency romance at its finest awaits you in For Love of Sarah by Hazel Statham.

Five years ago, Alexander Markham, Earl of Thorne, discovered his wife, Sarah, had abandoned him. For reasons unknown, the beautiful wife he cherished disappeared without a trace. When he spots her in the marketplace in Yorkshire, the feelings he worked desperately to subdue in the years since she left, come flooding back.

Sarah dared to think she was safe from the secrets that haunt her. Seeing Alexander again after all this time, makes her realize how precarious her situation is. When a flood threatens her home, she is forced to take Alexander up on his offer to board at her former home. As the days pass, the risk of discovery grows, and she doubts their love is strong enough to triumph over the secrets of her past.

For Love of Sarah is a moving Regency romance with a unique plot and a sense of adventure. Filled with love, a quest for the truth, and forgiveness the reader is treated to a romance novel that begs to be devoured. Masterfully told, Statham has created characters you love--or in some instances, love to hate--and whose story totally captivates you from the very first word.

I rarely have the chance to read a book in one sitting, but I stayed up late into the night to finish this one. Having read several of Statham's books, I was thrilled when she asked me to review For Love of Sarah. I have never been disappointed in her work and each book I read is better than the last. That this romance novel deals with a married couple overcoming obstacles to be reunited makes this book unusual, but also very special. Statham takes a risk and it works well.
