No, not a rainbow, he thought nonsensically.
More like a beautiful butterfly emerging almost magically, from its chrysalis. In that moment, that was how he saw Annie.
He had unveiled something precious, immeasurably lovely, and completely unexpected. Annie lowered the flute to her lap and reverently stroked the keys. Alex had given her a wedding gift, after all, she thought.
They have sex, because this is a romance. But even though Annie is now happy with her life, Alex feels like she's been handicapped too much, and sends her to a school for the deaf.
She doesn't want to go and repeatedly writes to Alex asking to come home. He finally relents after she sends him a portrait. He goes to Albany, where he sent Annie to school, and meets one of her teachers who pointedly tells him that Alex should go away to a school and perfect his Latin before he's allowed to return to his wife. Alex realizes that Annie belongs with him, and she's glad to go back home with him.
Best part of story, including ending: I like this story because the romance is unique. Annie has a disability, and in a world of romance novels with two physically perfect protagonists, finding a story where the female protagonist was deaf is refreshing. Anderson also handles difficult topics the rape very well.
Best scene in story: I enjoy the scene when Alex discovers Annie in the attic for the first time.
She's completely different than the quiet insecure woman the readers, and Alex, know. In her special place, you see for the first time her potential to live just like every one else. Catherine has the power to bring hope through her writings. I am always impressed with her writing style. This book is a staple on my shelf.
Thank you! Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by DDM from Warm, fuzzy feeling Annie's Song was a good romance that left a warm, fluffy feeling in my heart.
I just love feeling good at the end of a romance and thinking, "That's how all love should be. Everyone thought her to be dimwitted, and she was treated as such.
