Someday Soon

Written by Joan Wolf
Review by Pat Maynard

Lady Alexandra Wilton, who has continually refused to marry without love, discovers upon her father’s death that if she doesn’t marry his heir, she will lose everything. Add to this the subsequent discovery that the ‘heir’ is not to be her ‘civilized’ cousin, Geoffrey, as expected, but, rather, a fiery Scottish Highlander, the recently discovered living son of her father’s brother, she is even more incensed — although she eventually agrees to the marriage. From there on, the story line is, at best, predictable…boy finds girl, boy loses girl, boy finds girl again, etc.

Being a big Joan Wolf fan ever since reading her excellent Iron Age trilogy and medieval mystery duo, I found this book to be a disappointment because I know this fine author is capable of much, much more.
