Item Description...
Unable to get Flora, a troubled, little girl, to open up to him, former Marine Sam Hawke, who runs an inner-city youth center, turns to newspaper reporter Ana Burns for help, and together they vow to protect Flora from a powerful predator who is determined to destroy them all. Original. 30,000 first printing.

Publishers Description
Something was terribly wrong with the shy, scared little girl. Every day, she came to Haven, Sam Hawke's inner-city youth center. But the former marine couldn't get Flora to open up. So he turned to newspaper reporter Ana Burns, hoping that her skill at asking nosy questions about him and his mission could be put to better use.

Flora quickly captured Ana's heart. As did Sam and his dream of providing a haven for children with nowhere else to go. Ana's questions were soon answered—and worst fears confirmed—about little Flora. And protecting her and the center from a powerful predator would take all their love and faith combined.

Redundant tripe...  Nov 29, 2007
What happens when two people who are meant to be together meet during tragic circumstances? They fall in love. And it seems that they'd be happy together, except that one of them makes it difficult, putting unreasonable obstacles in their path. Sarah Carlyle and Charles Locke meet on a ship from India to England. The year is 1814. Charles's ship suffers from a pirate attack. The pirates steal his fortune -- the fortune that would have established his trade in the tea business. He barely survives the attack, and is taken to another ship. Sarah Carlyle looks after him. A young, rich widow, she has found that her calling is to become a missionary, and plans to give away all of her fortune to the poor. She also plans to live in poverty somewhere in India. She insists that God has this purpose for her. Back in England, Charles is smitten with the plain but caring Mrs. Carlyle. Except that she's not Mrs. Carlyle but Lady Delacroix, a rich widow of noble blood. He wants to get ahead in life, have financial security for his family. She wants him to give up his dreams and join her in a life of homelessness and poverty in India. Who's right and who's wrong?

Sarah is the most annoying heroine I have read in quite a long time! She irritated her sisters and she irritated me. She wants to give away all of her fortune and live like a homeless person in a foreign country. Who on earth would agree with such a thing? And why on earth would she think that God wants her to do this? Charles's plans to get ahead in life are sensible, but Sarah thinks that he's only after her patronage. So, for 325 pages, you will read one scene after one tiring scene centered on this "romantic obstacle." The story is redundant to the point of being coma-inducing. I almost threw the book across the room when Sarah and Charles began to argue about the same thing for the fifth (or was it the sixth?) time. Ugh. The secondary characters are one-dimensional and uninteresting, including Sarah's sassy sisters. The Miss Pickworth thing (gossip column) seemed interesting, but got lost in all of the nonsense. The Jane Austen throwbacks are cute at first, but they too become boring and repetitive after a while. Whenever Palmer used some modifier of a Jane Austen quote or passage (dialogue like, "Be not alarmed madam...," and the thing about "ardent love," characters playing whist, the sisters giggling and flirting, etc.), I had to stop reading. The writing style was too close to Austen to the point that it seemed almost plagiaristic. I enjoy Christian/inspirational fiction, I love historical novels (Regency is a favorite right after Victorian) and the romantic in me wants a little lovin' thrown in the stories I read (it doesn't have to be the main plot though), but I also want them to be well written. This one was not. I have no other choice but to give The Affectionate Adversary one star. I wanted to like it, I really did. Catherine Palmer seems to be a popular author in this genre. I hope her other books are better than this.
Terribly dull  Jun 19, 2007
I bought this book at Christmas and have forced myself to finish it. It took me 5 months! The first few chapters are the best part of the book. The rest is mind-numbing drivel that bores you too tears. Charles survives a near-death experience and is constantly put down by the whiny Sarah. I wanted Charles to tell her off so bad! He kind of did at the end, but either way this book is a sleeper! I hear the Bachelor's Bargain is better, I hope b/c I have already bought it as well. Are we even sure Palmer wrote this?
The Affectionate Adversary  Feb 16, 2007
I enjoyed The Bachelor's Dilema by Catherine Palmer, but I found this book to be tedious and repetious. The heroine's constant fixation that only people who were destitute could enter Heaven was annoying and not entirely biblical.
Alright I Guess........  Nov 10, 2006
The affectionate Adversary was an alright book I suppose. What I found annoying was the fact that Sarah was so misguided. She thought that she had such a horrible life that she should go give up everything and go live in some dirt hovel. Every time that Charles showed his love for her she still thought he wasn't good enough for her because he wouldn't go live in a shack with her. Sarah did not love her money over God, she was not obsessed about it either. Therefore it's strange how she came to the conclusion that she needed to live in a hut to be happy. Not very realistic. I wish she would have come to the right conclusion faster. Other than the slightly annoying heroine, it was an ok book. Miss Pickworth was hilarious. But..... don't worry. "THE BACHELORS BARGAIN" is an awesome book, about Sarah's maid Anne. I Loved it.
Loved it! Excellent Christian romance with perfect degree of adventure!  Aug 30, 2006
This story, complete with pirates, English fortune, and 19th century marriage expectations is a joy to read! I couldn't put it down.
