Blackwood's romantic fiction novel is a sweeping saga written in the tradition of Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' and 'What Dreams May Come'. It has been compared to Erich Segal's 'Love Story' and Nicholas Sparks' 'The Notebook'. The novel has also received extremely positive reviews from Reader's Favorite reviewers.
"I find an audio video is very much like turning the pages of a book," stated Rusty when discussing her three-part audio video series. "By this I mean it provides and allows the recipient an insightful look into the contents being discussed, as opposed to simply listening to an audio broadcast where the visual aspect is entirely left to the listener. This was one of the main reasons I chose to present this series in the way in which I have. We live in a technological world where most everything is acquired through computers of some form, where the screen of such provides visual access for entertainment and information, and in this regard it is very much the same when it comes to books and supplying a window inside of them, as well as inside those who write them."
In the new novel the city of Paris, one of the most romantic places in the world, sets the scene for what some believe could be one of the best romance novels to come along in ages. The book is peppered with drama, intrigue, deception, adultery and jealousy. The fictional romance centers on star-crossed lovers Joy Wychmere and Cullen Malone. A diary, lost for almost half a century, opens a door to the past and one fateful evening changes two lives forever.
Reader Fred Pifer stated the new romance book, "is a fascinating book of a love story that seemed to be written with me in mind. In the book 'Love Story' by Erich Segal, he told of a deep abiding love story that reminds me of Cullen and Joy’s in Ms. Blackwood’s book, but the twists of intrigue and mystery that she adds keeps the reader on edge throughout."
Reviewer Cat Howard said, "Eternal love, finding your true soul mate, and how echoes from past lives can influence the present, this story has it all . . . " Another Reader's Favorite reviewer stated, "Enjoyable and exciting, this is a book for people who have romance flowing in their veins."
