Blind Faith by Rowena Portch does not tell a conventional romance. The story of Rainair “Rai” Landon has some original traits that make this book a very enjoyable read. She is a young woman, a reputable lawyer, but she suffered a major physical injury. Unable to file for divorce from an abusive husband because of his many connections, she strives to be independent and hopes to live in her own way. After seven years, she goes on a cruise where she meets a man that perhaps she can trust – and perhaps not. Even though neither of them is interested in a stable relationship, it blossoms under the most adverse circumstances.
Blind Faith is not Portch’s first book, as is clear from her fine way of writing. Rai’s story begins like crime news, while she is blind at the hospital, then it develops into a delicate love story and ends after many twists and turns of events. The development is unpredictable, and I like it. I enjoyed the spontaneous and genuine dialogues. The characters are well developed, and their contradictions make them realistic. I especially like Rai. She is a strong woman, a heroine you care about and like. Her bad luck and injury are facts that happen more and more often in our society. However, her efforts to be independent and get rid of her awful husband send the message that it is possible to beat circumstances. I recommend this book to readers who like romance and a bit of suspense.
