It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea…
Annaleigh Wells and William Calloway had a love even the angels envied. It was as if the universe spun them toward one another, like the stars crafted their souls to fit perfectly together.
With a wedding on the horizon, fate had a change of heart. Whispered warnings from phantoms and morbid nightmares darkened every night—but even visions of the future couldn’t save Annaleigh.
Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s poem Annabel Lee, Crouch’s period romance Madly, Deeply tells the tale of love so great, it cannot be contained in just one life.
This was a great story.
This is my first time reading this writers work, and she did a fab job, I’ll be making sure to read more of them.
Madly, Deeply tells the story of Annaleigh (Anna) and William, these two childhood sweethearts whose love is emotional, moving, and doomed from the very beginning.
These twos love is so strong not even Heaven’s Angels could tear them apart.
It was spine chilling despite it not having the HEA were so hoping for.
Based on the poem The Annabel Lee by Poe, Erica has done a magnificent job in transforming this into a bone-poking love story, that will rip your heart apart, then take you on a journey of recovery and repair.
You could feel ALL the motions that were going from Anna to William, then from William to his Sister Mary and even the loss of their parents too, at times the emotions took over and there’s nothing from stopping the water works, especially the ending….that was a moving scene.
Words can’t comprehend the feelings and emotions that I have for this book, it truly was a masterpiece and I am thankful for having the chance to read and review.
