    1. There is no way I can easily describe the powerful effect that this tremendous work of fiction blended skillfully with fact had on me. The writing is skilled and carries the reader forward in the quest to know more and the story line is heartbreakingly beautiful and moving, with three separate love stories weaving in and out of the book and entwining with each other. Don't be mistaken, however, in thinking that this is a lightweight romance story. The love is part of the whole panoply of a metic [...]


    2. Liam’s Story is a natural sequel to the romantic saga of the Elliott family as told by Ann Victoria Roberts in her previous book entitled Louisa Elliott. To quote the closing lines of the book:Stephen knew what Liam wanted, he wanted it written down for the living to read. It shook him so much that all he could do was reach for Zoe and hold her, very close, against his heart.‘I’ll do my best,’ he whispered as he raised his face to the light. ‘I’ll do my very best.’Stephen (one of t [...]


    3. An incredible story. I am in awe of the research that must have gone into this book. It was good that I had read "Louisa Elliot" first since this is a continuation of this family drama. I love Ann Victoria Roberts' style, - her talent to 'paint' pictures in your mind is incredible. She doesn't need to tell you what you see or where you are's hust there.At times this story, based on a diary of a relative is shocking, seems impossible and one hopes or wishes for a different outcome. But, - it is w [...]


    4. This epic, time-shifting, historical romance is the remarkable sequel to Louisa Elliott. Continuing the dramatic story of the Elliott family, the novel finds two descendants uncovering the secrets of the past through recently discovered letters and a diary from World War I. The complicated (to say the least) family relationships and the horrors of war makes this lengthy novel a compelling read. A fascinating story, I could not put it down. Highly recommended for historical fiction and romance fa [...]


    5. Couldn't put down.I read all of Ann Victoria Books a good while ago, they are absolutely stunning I need to re- read and buy her latest books She is a wonderful writer you fall into the pages of her books .The first book I read was Louisa Elliott an amazing book .


    6. A slightly romantic novel (a genre that I have never cared for) about a woman who is entranced by a photo she has of two brothers taken during WWI that leads her to a search of her ancestry and in tracking down relatives, which leads her to Liam's diary and the secrets that torn generations of two families apart.Well crafted and a fast read in spite of its at times syrupy conventions


    7. 'Liam's Story' is the original British title of the novel that followed 'Louisa Elliott'In the USA, it was published later as 'Morning's Gate.' In fact I preferred that title, but sadly we had trouble with the editing of the book, and it contains more typographical errors than the British version.


    8. Character development was a little poor. I never got the feeling that I rally knew these characters. But it was interesting to follow these people during WWI. The story was too long in some areas and lacking in others.
