I liked the overall plot of the story but it fell short. Many things were unrealistic. For example, telling a little girl that they need to change the father's name and she can't tell anyone. Children, by accident came come out with the truth and then feel bad. The H's relationship with the OW / friend was never really explained. He had to be pretty close to the woman to get up and in front of his wife and daughter stand there with his arm around the woman. While one might give a hug to a close friend when saying "Hello" you don't typically stand there with arms around each other for an extended period of time. Then, when he leaves and says he had enough, he doesn't contact the h or his daughter at all just appears on the doorsteps with his mother. What happened to at least calling and stating that you're coming back?
Rebecca Winters is a good author but this one just didn't work. Perhaps because this was very short she didn't get a chance to fully...
Meg Roberts fell in love with Russian KGB agent Konstantin Rudenko, he begged Meg to stay in Russia and marry him. But unlike most books when the woman goes to a foreign country and meets a man she usually marries him. Not Meg, she refuses to marry Kon. Instead she goes back to the USA and finds she is going to have a baby. Now that baby is six years old and Meg takes her to see the ballet The Nutcracker, little Anna loves the play. But as they are leaving the building a man stops them. The man is Kon, but now his name is Gary Johnson. He has defected to America. His real name is Dimitri Leonovitch, the KGB renamed him when they kidnapped him when he was a small child, and gave him the name of Konstanin Rudenko. Now all he wants is to have his little girl and Meg, with him. But Meg doesn't trust him, she first thinks Kon has come to take Anna back to Russia. But Kon has come to stay, in fact he has bought a house and gotten a career as a writer, and he is doing...
Once there was a tremendously naive American schoolteacher who spent time in Russia and fell for a tall, dark, handsome, arrogant KGB agent. Then she wound up back in the US, a single mother to the precocious daughter who was born as a result.
Except now, years later, Mr. Tall-Dark-Et Cetera has reappeared, and wants to be part of the family. But trust comes hard for the woman who's been betrayed, and this is the point where the reader may get a little impatient with both hero and heroine: Meg has a nasty habit of jumping to conclusions and freaking out, and Kon has a nasty habit of being unbelievably obtuse about her fears.
On the plus side, though, there are some incredibly tender moments when the two are not losing it or glaring at each other. I like the book better now than the first few times I read it . . .
