For the few – very few – who may have never read Gaiman, I recommend this as your first read. He also has a couple of short story collections that I love, and recommend highly.
For all of you who told me this series was one of the best you’ve ever read and I’d love it, you were right! Historical fiction has always been my favorite genre, but historical romances have been more hits than misses. This is a definite hit – bulls-eye as a matter of fact.
This is the the story of Dr. Leo Liebenstein and his search for his “real” wife Rema. However, it’s not that easy. As the reader comes to discover, reality is in the eye of the beholder. Is Rema really an imposter? Or is Leo having a crisis such that he can no longer recognize what he once took for granted? That what he has known all along is no longer the same. People change. But in his eyes, she is so different, she has to be another person altogether.
