FACES is one outstanding novel! I was so captivated by this Beauty and
Beast tale where the roles are reversed in the characters. It was
ingenious how Ms. Harmon provided the reader enough background scenes that
allowed us to feel how much Ambrose had actually lost. Fern is a romance
heroine that is worthy of the highest praise. Mere words cannot express
the perfection I found in this book!
