    This was by far my favorite Loyal Wynward book. The characters were more like the originals than in any other of her book I've read.

    I have read lots of fan fiction, and I am accustomed to the occasional misspelling or misuse of a word, but not to this extent. After all, I PAID to read this mess. Toward the end of the eBook version, one can see where Ms. Wynyard's beta group had made suggestions (looked/stared/glared) and even a full comment from one of her beta readers at the end of a chapter. All those should have been removed before the manuscript was converted to the Kindle format. That is SO UNPROFESSIONAL. Ms. Wynyard (and I assume Loyal is a female because she writes her male characters as if they are a bunch of whisy-whasy beta males) makes John Thornton into a weak sniveling man (while always saying how virile he is). She defines him by his actions, which are too willing to forgive and forget. She has Professor Reed talk to Margaret of explicit sexual matters. She has a man attack Margaret. She has Margaret marry a homosexual. She has Margaret cry and cry and cry. She has Mrs. Thornton (on her death bed) leave Margaret some family jewelry to show John that she accepts Margaret, even though Margaret is now married to another. It's just too out of character. Her characterization of John and Margaret is based on the mini-series with Richard Armitage. Ms. Wynyard even talks about the first time they saw each other as being in the cotton mill. I admit it's a wonderful scene in the movie, but it didn't occur as such in the book. Even if this is not a SEQUEL, perhaps Ms. Wynyard should have read Gaskell's work. I do not criticize the sex scenes. As I said at the beginning, I read fan fiction, and there's lots of that stuff out on the internet. This is a *new* love story for John and Margaret. It is NOT a sequel. Please do not buy it if you want to read an extension to the original. Their love is more powerful. Expect more intimacy and adult content.-- Leaning down towards her, John murmured softly into her ear, "I miss you, Margaret. Please, come back to Milton. Don't lock your heart away. Return to me." He looked into her eyes that were staring at him in awe and then hesitantly turned and left, feeling her absence pressing in on him from that first step away. There was a knot in his stomach, but he had done all he could do for now. But was it enough?

    Probably my favourite sequel of North and South until the moment. As almost all of the books of this author, there is pattern. Margaret and John are separated because some sort of misunderstanding, then they discover it and try to find a solution, which in my opinion is sometimes very exaggerated and complicated. The new elements added to make it more intriguing, such as Margaret's first marriage, the notes, Higgins's life, Dr. Pritchard, etc. are quite well developed. What I really like about this book is the fact that it is mainly focused on John instead of Margaret, which makes you love the character even more. Maybe a little mushy for the real Thornton, but hey, a girl can dream with the perfect masculine sensitive guy.

    Wow, I can't really figure out the stars in this. I loved the premise. The writing style was enjoyable. Nostalgia, romance, suspense, kidnapping, scary notes, death and marriage and some humor. It touches on everything, however, I just don't like sensual scenes and had I paid attention to the first page of about the book I would not have gotten the book. So I just skimmed part of this book due to that. I don't feel you need sexual scenes to be romantic. I understand the supposed need here since Margaret's first marriage was a bust. I just don't know what to say. So many sensitive issues were touched on with tact, skill, discernment and sensitivity - just not my cup of tea.

    A touching and romantic journey...About this edition:A couple of times, whole paragraphs were repeated; andA reader's comments on a section were accidently published within, leading me to believe this was once published on a website.Again, Loyal Wynyard's John Thornton and Margaret Hale are definitely not Elizabeth Gaskell's John Thornton and Margaret Hale, but her version of this wonderful couple is sweet and entertaining.
