Always Remember: Ben’s Story (A Ravenswood Novel)

We rated this book:


Lady Jennifer Arden has not walked on her own in years, not since a childhood illness left one leg twisted and useless to her. Ben Ellis is the illegitimate son of an earl with a daughter of his own. When they meet, there is instant affection, but as that affection blossoms into attraction, they find themselves held back by what society would consider their shortcomings. Eager as they are to follow their dreams, it is hard for them to see that their dreams will lead them to each other.

Always Remember is a charming story, with a pair of deeply charming characters. Even before Ben and Jennifer realized they were in love with each other, I had already fallen in love with them. It was a soft, tender book, exactly the sort of thing I enjoy on cold winter nights.

I could only have enjoyed it more if it were a little less wordy. At times the narration and the thoughts of the characters grew repetitive, and the focus on the inner lives of Ben and Jennifer at times left secondary plot lines and characters far enough in the background that I was in danger of forgetting them. On the whole, though, I expect this will be a much-loved romance.
