Rebecca Jordan’s life is simple, disciplined, and uncomplicated, at least on the surface. Then she meets a handsome stranger/secret admirer named Michael Vale one fateful late night at a bookstore café. As a focused but struggling photographer with a passion for art, her outwardly happy world is turned upside down during this life-changing encounter when she quickly realizes she has met her soul mate. The undeniable attraction between them and their intense, immediate connection seem picture perfect as they discuss the shop’s local artwork, until Rebecca abruptly ends the chance meeting with no explanation.
Betraying Brett, her loyal, loving boyfriend, is something Rebecca can never bring herself to do. Driven by a strong moral code and molded by divorced parents and a tumultuous childhood, she struggles to stay away from Michael, but fate and circumstance intervene, bringing them back together time and time again. As much as she resists, there is no denying her true feelings for him and the simple fact that Michael understands her in a way Brett never has. Michael proves to be everything she’s ever wanted, but remains just out of her reach.
Behind the Glass tells the story of Michael and Rebecca’s extraordinary love and the many unconventional stages their relationship must go through. Their morals and their faith in true love and in each other will be put to the test as they learn that meeting one’s soul mate does not come without obstacles.
Hello there my lovelies! I have another fabulous little book review for you today, so let’s dive in!
Wow, this is such a decadent read. Straight off the bat I was completely consumed into Rebecca’s world. Ms. Morgen is a master of creating rich descriptions and fabulous world building that puts you smack in the middle of everything. It’s the first time in a while that I was walking in the land of the characters in the first five pages.
Not only were the descriptions lush and beautiful, but so were the emotions. I felt every tug and pull as Rebecca and Michael walked their path to learning more about each other and falling in love.
But as always, it isn’t that simple. Rebecca is already in a relationship and both Michael and Rebecca have a spot on moral compass that doesn’t allow for exploring their feelings for each other while Rebecca is still attached (but not married, this is important to note!) to another man. But is Rebecca willing to give up the comfort of her relationship with Brett to take a chance with Michael.
The ending was as fulfilling as the story itself and I’d love to read more from this author. Her craft is absolutely spot on and so engaging. If you enjoy the heartwarming movies on Hallmark that make you swoon and smile and happy sigh, you need to read Behind The Glass.
