Product Description

Three couples in crisis, multiple friendships under pressure.
On-off-on lovers Daniel and Tina return to their childhood town. After twenty-five years together, they marry in typically chaotic fashion, witnessed by old friends, Victoria and Linda who become entangled in the drama, their own lives changing beyond recognition. However, as all their marriages begin to splinter, and damaged Victoria begins an affair with Daniel, the secret illness that Tina has been hiding emerges. Victoria's crazed and violent ex-husband attempts to kill Daniel and nearly succeeds, in a fire that devastates the community. On the eve of their first wedding anniversary, Tina returns to face her husband, but is it to say goodbye forever, or to stay?

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner by Jan Ruth 29 August 2016
By A Critical Reader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the fifth book I've read by this author so far, and it solidifies my praise for her work. I'm just a sucker for romance, for that "small town" or "out in the country" kind of atmosphere, the tight-knit community, and the very real characters with very real problems. This book has all of that.

Though unrelated to Midnight Sky, White Horizon has a similar feel with its complex and troubled but loveable male protagonist and the more urban woman. Personally, I absolutely loved Midnight Sky, and I'd say that if you love one, you have to like/love the other. It's comparable to the relationship between the movies, "Sleepless in Seattle," and "You've Got Mail." Different plots and different characters but with the same fans. (This book is nothing like those movies. I’m simply using them as an example to explain the similarities between the books.)

As for the competing women, I don't think it's clear-cut which one, Tina or Victoria, deserves more compassion or who should win. I liked one more than the other, but this will depend on the readers and who is more relatable in their minds. Daniel, on the other hand, is sure to please.

Onto the next Jan Ruth book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jan Ruth's characters will stay with you for a long time 26 October 2012
By Build another bookcase - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed White Horizon. The characters are so real I can instantly retrieve them from my memory, even now several weeks after having finished reading. Daniel's touches of humour, his natural confidence and haphazard approach to life are a breath of fresh Welsh mountain air. Tina embodies a misguided self-sacrificing mentality that can be so destructive. Victoria - exquisite in her vulnerability but self-serving. It can be a challenge to distinguish between the players in a tangled web plot like White Horison but, from the first time each character is introduced, they come to life as unqiue individuals.
The settings are beautiful and the pace is perfect. It had me picking up my kindle at every opportunity to find out where Jan Ruth was taking me next. If you like literary fiction with a dollop of romance and thrills then I highly recommend this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A cozy look at a not so cozy community 25 March 2013
By Julie E. Painter - Published on

But all is not well. Despite the phrenic living of life among the characters, this story rings true in its human nature. As an American, I had no problem understanding the English/Welshisms and thoroughly enjoying the story.

Ms. Ruth has removed the onus of money trouble and freed her characters to rise and fall by their own hand. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read 1 March 2014

I enjoyed this, the fist of Jan Ruth's books I've read. The tale of three intertwined couples is fast paced and takes the reader on an emotional rollercoaster set in beautiful Snowdonia. Ruth writes about real people who find a place in the reader's heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! 5 April 2014
By Bodicia - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The scene is set by the lovely Victoria who has an abusive husband Max. I felt a lot of compassion for her in the beginning but then as the book went on my feelings towards this character began to change as her true colours came to the forefront. There are a lot of emotions in this book; lives are entangled and decisions made which threaten the happiness of all. The heroine for me was Tina who showed them all what true love really is.

I found myself quite emotionally involved, particularly with Tina and Daniel whose situation I couldn’t help feeling a lot of compassion for. Daniel gets caught up in trying to get the hotel off the ground and along the way fails to notice what is really happening with his wife, mistakenly thinking she doesn’t want him anymore and getting swept up in looking after the vulnerable Victoria whose dangerous husband is determined she will not leave the marital bed as he seeks to finally control her once and for all.

This book is filled with characters who shine and slot in to place beautifully and it has an absorbing plot. A difficult book to put down. Jan Ruth’s books are going to find a permanent place on my bookshelf; a wonderful storyteller!
