This story, in my opinion, could be construed as a holiday themed romance because it is set in an unusual place for romance novels –
by Mona Risk – The Wild Rose Press Russian
Dr Jillian Burton, a Paediatric/Neonatal specialist is in
for a short time as part of an American Health Delegation to improve childrens’ health. In the Belarus Solidarity Hospital in she meets up with, and is instantly drawn to, the charismatic hospital director, Dr Fyodor Vassilov. Minsk
Each of these doctors carry the scars of tragedies from their past. Fyodor for the loss of his wife, the mother of his four sons, and Jillian is guilt ridden for causing the death of her only child.
The author obviously knows
well and this drew me in straight away. I could feel the icy cold, visualize the cars frozen in the street, and the majestic old buildings that were long past their glory days. Belarus
This was a moving romantic story, brilliantly portraying a country and culture I know little about. The story was a gripping one, beautifully written and full of passion. Fyodor and Jillian each have to ride an emotional rollercoaster before they achieve their HEA ending, and when it happened, it was certainly worth waiting for.
She is published by one of my publishers, The Wild Rose Press.
