Standish is well written, deep, and utterly realistic in many of its themes. Ganymede served ambrosia to Zeus, so also the name of Ambrose recall this legend.

One would swear the characters had erasets too many standisg books and were over-analyzing themselves, and this in a time frame BEFORE psychology.

He was stronger and wiser without entirely losing his romantic heart. In this instance, I actually had to read the last few pages over again twice, and I was still left scratching my head and saying, “Wait?

Jealousy and doubt cause separation, but the greater force of their love eventually brings them back into contact with each other. I was surprised by this book.

It was told with the sort of passion necessary in good story-telling, a passion that kept me reading despite point of view problems. It’s the moments of pain stndish might be hard for some to read, especially since Standish suffers because of some of Rafe’s actions or lack thereof, so I have to say that you might want to read at your risk but personally I loved it.

The story is riveting and keeps you engaged. The author included the right amount of description and all the emotion needed to make such scenes meaningful. Ambrose Standish whose family originally owned the house becomes a tutor to Rafe’s son the current owner. This prevented me from getting as attached to the characters as I could have been. The historical bits weren’t heavy handed to distract from erastea story but at no point did I wonder what decade of which century I was in.

But, this book put a hole in my heart with its end, I have to stopped myself from the influence of this book on my emotions and mind, Its so RAW.

The main character and Rafe the new master of Standish more or less don’t hit it off and Rafe is all about his unrequited erasts for Ambrose. I like the way staneish character development takes them to the opposite places they were at the start of the story. Rafe has been terribly damaged by a cruel upbringing, and takes refuge from his own feelings of worthlessness and damnation in coldness and promiscuity.

A sensitive young man. Though peppered with graphic sexual descriptions, it never becomes tedious or gratuitous within the story. By the time Rafe gets back to England in order to throw money at the problem and act all noble, hot Irish highway man Fleury is on the scene.

That foreshadowing drives the plot well, though the pace moves slowly in some places. Erastes’ novel, Standish, is brilliant in the breadth, depth, and quantity of historical knowledge used to give it a textured reality, almost as if we can feel the world the characters live in. He wagers a secret bid to win and eventually possess Ambrose. The prison chp were horrible to read but Amborse and that french man somehow melted my heart and give it a light in the dark place, for Fleury with Amborse in that hell balm my heart.
