A bored wife's life suddenly becomes challenging when a stranger steps into her world, in the stunning romance novel, Between Nowhere and Lost by Alexandra Christle. In January of 1966, Helen Hodges is a housewife battling with boredom. After ten years of marriage, Helen has never gotten pregnant, and her husband Harold is adamantly unwilling to adopt the children Helen desperately desires. Due to his job at the mill, Harold is traveling a lot lately and isn't home. Because he doesn't want her to work, Helen is lonely and has a lot of time on her hands. One afternoon, David Drummond, the factory owner's son, walks into her life, and instantly they are attracted to each other. Because Helen is Catholic, she battles her feelings for David, but each time they run into each other, their desire for each other deepens. Harold is working to bring in a Union and keep David's father from closing down the factory, but in the meantime, Helen and David are fighting the fire of passion and temptation. Can Helen resist David and stay true to Harold? If she can't, what will happen to them all?
Set in the mid-1960s, Between Nowhere and Lost by Alexandra Christle is an unforgettably poignant romance novel. I appreciated how the moments of intimacy are only suggested, easily interpreted, and tasteful. Although drama, infidelity, and heartbreak lace through the plot, it is a beautiful story of love, loss, and redemption. It is a heart-touching story with charming characters that are easy to relate to and admire. The moving story has a striking realism that is heartrending as well as appealing. It is an outstanding novel that will please fans of historical romance novels and women's fiction who enjoy a fantastic love story.
