AS DESCRIBED ON AMAZON:
Rebecca Jordan’s life is simple, disciplined, and uncomplicated, at least on the surface. Then she meets a handsome stranger/secret admirer named Michael Vale one fateful late night at a bookstore café. As a focused but struggling photographer with a passion for art, her outwardly happy world is turned upside down during this life-changing encounter when she quickly realizes she has met her soul mate. The undeniable attraction between them and their intense, immediate connection seem picture perfect as they discuss the shop’s local artwork, until Rebecca abruptly ends the chance meeting with no explanation.
Betraying Brett, her loyal, loving boyfriend, is something Rebecca can never bring herself to do. Driven by a strong moral code and molded by divorced parents and a tumultuous childhood, she struggles to stay away from Michael, but fate and circumstance intervene, bringing them back together time and time again. As much as she resists, there is no denying her true feelings for him and the simple fact that Michael understands her in a way Brett never has. Michael proves to be everything she’s ever wanted, but remains just out of her reach.
Behind the Glass tells the story of Michael and Rebecca’s extraordinary love and the many unconventional stages their relationship must go through. Their morals and their faith in true love and in each other will be put to the test as they learn that meeting one’s soul mate does not come without obstacles.
Behind The Glass described a woman damaged by the divorce of her parents and abandonment of her father. A delicate issue, yes, but Rebecca's emotional problems bordered on annoying. Michael and Rebecca's personal restraint while in each other's company was impressive. Their moral fortitude was uncommon and refreshing. I felt sorry for Rebecca, but I was frustrated by the fact that she chose to stay with Brett even though she loved Michael. Scratch my head; she didn't seem to love Brett at all (even though she later claimed she loved both men.) And why did Leo set her up with Brett? He should have known better. The build up to the sexual relationship took so long. By the time it got to that point, I wasn't even interested in it, and the act of making love seemed to take forever. Get it over with already, I thought. Frequently, I found myself distracted and easily putting the book down. I was bored.
