|Hannah is an ex-nun who married the first man she was
attracted to after leaving the convent. Peter is
undemonstrative and cold. Denny Lorenzo is a pop star
who recently recovered from a devastating car accident
that left him scarred and with a limp and his
estranged wife without a memory. They meet by chance
and fall in love. Everything seems to be against
them, religion, marital status, distance, are only the
start. They have an almost affair, seeing each other
when they can, writing, calling, but not consummating
the relationship sexually. Dennyís wife is determined
to keep her status as the starís wife, even though she
has been repeatedly unfaithful, and Peter becomes
cruel and abusive, after finding out about the almost
affair. The couple do their best to stay away from
each other to no avail, but are too much in love to
forget about each other.
Strange things seem to be happening on tour. Denny gets a note telling him to stay away from Hannah, and suffers from strange ailments and accidents. Hannah is also ill, is someone trying to stop their affair permanently?
This novel is full of drama and tension. The relationships between the different characters are very complicated and engrossing. The story line is really gripping and has no slow areas. The characters are very realistic and well drawn. I never guessed the villain, due to the red herrings. I read this not so short book in one sitting, it was an excellent read.
