A Stubborn Love Story
15 December, 2014
The author is a native American writer who loves writing happy ended love stories.
Storyline: Maura Donahue, owner of a large picturesque farmland in Ireland, one day is encountered by the owner of a large film studio from New York, Jefferson King, in order to hire her farm to shoot his forthcoming film. Though initially Maura declines the huge commercial offer from Jefferson, she later budges to the same, when she finds that she is in love with the handsome and powerful King. She signs a contract with King after an irresistible sexual encounter with him. Jefferson leaves, having got his job done. Maura becomes pregnant later but will be unable to reach Jefferson at New York due to his busy schedule. One day, Jefferson learns that Maura is not cooperating with his crew for the shoot at her farm as per the contract signed and so decides to visit Ireland to know the reasons personally. There he discovers the truth of Maura’s pregnancy. Maura in the meanwhile develops deep hatred towards King as he refuses to love her but offers to marry her, just as an obligation, due to his past failed love story. Eventually, with the intervention of King’s family, both of them realize that they are in deep love with each other and cannot live without each other. King, then proposes his love to Maura and offers to marry her and also start living with her in Ireland to which Maura accepts.
Pros: It’s a cool love story of a self centered woman with a highly successful man. The strength of a woman when she wants to be what she is, has been elicited with magnificence here. The truth that even an Alpha male would succumb to a mentally strong woman is well written. Suppressing one’s egos sometimes to continue a relationship is very much necessary nowadays for the benefit of the family as well as society. This is the only link to extension of human race for some more centuries….probably!
Cons: I doubt whether such powerful and successful businessmen nowadays succumb to sentiments like love and marriage. Maura could have avoided the trauma if she was strong enough to avoid the physical contact with Jefferson. Her mental stubbornness was not gelling with her physical intentions….a clear reason for all the woes of her kind.
My favorite quote in the book
“ If every woman waited for a man who was worthy of her, there did be no marriages, would there?”
