Marty Voght GOLDEN DEEDS AND LOVERS is a beautiful orchestrated novel. Its musical words will quickly absorb its way into the readerís heart.
Arthur Lyndered, newly titled Baron Sanvrain, tragically loses his arm fighting in the war against Spain. Returning home, he readily accepts an invitation to the home of a childhood friend, Lady Susan Carwell. His intent is to win the hand of her lovely daughter, Charlotte. Charlotte unexpected, carefree nature quickly convinces Arthur his pursuit of marriage is useless. Miraculously, the comfort he seeks can only be found in Susanís soothing touch. How can a man who is not complete in body or soul ever hope to compete against such a strong and powerful love?
Lady Susan Carwell, newly widowed, is convinced she will never find love like the one she shared with her former husband. She is shocked to realize her heart quickens whenever Arthur Lyndered is near. Keeping her feelings well contained; she is convinced she can never reveal her hearts longing. It would be unthinkable to have feelings for her daughtersí intended.
Arthur and Susan have both experienced unspeakable hardships, it is only fitting they experience a happy ending. The tender way in which Susan convinces Arthur to view his disability is very memorable. Overall, the book is a smooth and tender read, which will not only appeal to the Regency fan but also to any historical reader. I can easily see this book being made into a sequel or movie.
