“The compelling narrative weaves together a setting that many know the name of, but not necessarily the specific events that made it so infamous. Allard has penned a captivating novel of the mystic nature in the town of Salem and how the love between two souls can prevail over the passing of time and anything that may impede them. I Highly Recommend. 5 stars.” ~The Coffee Pot Book Club
“Author Meredith Allard constructs an effective plot, weaving in and out of past and present lives, allowing words and phrases to haunt you until the whole mystery behind the love story is revealed.” ~IndieReader
How long would you wait for the one you loved?
Professor James Wentworth has a paranormal secret. He lives quietly in Salem, Massachusetts, making few ties with anyone. One night his private world is turned upside down when he meets Sarah Alexander, a dead ringer for his wife, Elizabeth. Though it has been years since Elizabeth's death, James cannot move on.
Sarah also has a secret. She is haunted by nightmares, and every night she is awakened by terrifying visions of hangings, being arrested, and dying in jail--scenes from the Salem Witch Trials in 1692. As James comes to terms with his feelings for Sarah, he must also dodge accusations from a reporter desperate to prove that James is not who, or what, he seems to be. Soon James and Sarah discover a mystery that may bind them in ways they never imagined. Will James make the ultimate sacrifice to protect Sarah and prevent a new hunt from bringing hysteria to Salem again?
Part historical fiction, part romance, part paranormal fantasy, Her Dear and Loving Husband is a story for anyone who believes that true love never dies.
Loved This Series!
I read the first book as it was free on Apple Books; although it may have been free, it caught at my heart. The other two books in the series I purchased because I’m intrigued by the Salem Witchcraft Trials. It has been a while since I read this series and may even go back and reread them, but from what I remember there are witches, vampire, werewolves and ghosts. It begins in a modern era and there are some flash backs so you can grasp the beginning of this lovely couples story and how they find each other some 200 years later. Ms. Allard does such a great job in not getting the reader lost in her flashbacks and is such a wonderfully storyteller! I really hated that the series ended with the three books as I could’ve gone on reading more. If you like PNR you will not be disappointed in this read!
