A Reader's Opinion: FOREVER MY EARL by Dawn Brower


A fun and quick read! I wanted to read something light and romantic, so I chose Ms. Brower's sweet novella, FOREVER MY EARL, and what a nice surprise! FOREVER MY EARL by Dawn Brower, is charming, well written, and so romantic that you won't be able to put it down. She nicely blended her well developed Garrick and Hannah's characters into a story of hope, dreams come true, and second chances. FOREVER MY EARL tells the journey of two broken souls who never thought they would fall in love. The first time Hannah met Garrick, she knew he was hers for eternity. Unfortunately, he needs to leave for war. Hannah is so sweet, but lacks confidence in herself and believes she will stay a wallflower for the rest of her life. Ten years later, Garrick comes back home from war, and was met with an unexpected surprise. He inherits the title of Earl and becomes the caregiver for his late brother's daughter, Amelia. It becomes evident that he needs a wife to help him. Since he and Hannah already feel a mutual attraction and share a beautiful chemistry, they rekindle their friendship hoping their lives will change for the best! Will Hannah’s dream come true?

True love is for fairy tales. At least that is what Miss Hannah Knight believes. Her formative years were filled with difficulties, but she carries one memory with her always--even through the darkest times. The summer she spent at Manchester Castle where she started to dream of a happily-ever-after in the arms of the man who holds her heart. War has left Garrick Edwards cynical. He never expected to inherit the title and become the Earl of Manchester, but his brother drank himself into an early grave leaving a daughter behind and a mountain of debt. Reluctantly,he returns to his ancestral home. When he arrives he finds Hannah there. Her letters during the war had given him hope when there was none; however he doesn't believe he deserves her love. As they rekindle their friendship they find hope they thought they'd both lost. In the bottom of their hearts they cling to that hope and start to wonder if some dreams can come true. The question is will they be brave enough to reach for them...
