The Stages of Romance | Faithfully Yours by Anne Carol


Is it possible to find your soul mate on the other side of the world?

Beth Johnson is an ambitious high school senior from suburban California with a secret passion for writing. David Somers is a charming young Englishman who wants nothing more than to play guitar in his up-and-coming rock band. Though worlds apart, when fate brings Beth and David together in London in the summer of 1979, sparks fly. After Beth receives upsetting news from home, she finds herself drawn to David’s warm character, and an all-consuming love develops. Theirs is the kind of love one never forgets, and as Beth’s stay in London nears the end, the young devoted couple must face the inevitable question: will their romance fade with the passing of summer or will they realize their promise of never letting go?

Author's Note: This book has been revised from the original 2014 edition and is now told from a Christian worldview.

Release Date: November 25, 2014

“Your fairy tale is about to begin.”

Beth and David’s whirlwind romance has survived a year of long-distance dating—dodging exes, dealing with jealousy, and syncing future goals. Eager to move into the next chapter of their lives together, Beth leaves California after graduation to follow her heart, joining David in his native London.

While Beth keeps busy with her university courses, David focuses on building his music career—recording and touring with his band, Vinyl Fog. They’re young and in love with the world at their feet.

Life seems perfect.

But it doesn’t take long before a series of unforeseen events challenges them like never before. How will Beth and David cope with one battle after another, and ultimately hold each other up while life keeps trying to knock them down?

Falling in love was easy.
Surviving love is the challenge.

Author’s Note: This book has been revised from the original 2015 edition and is now told from a Christian worldview.

Two souls becoming one…

The marriage of David and Beth Somers has survived many challenges in its first three years. The London guitarist, still faithfully devoted to his wife, has a new dream which pushes him to remain strong as he recovers from drug and alcohol addiction.

Ready to take on a new adventure, Beth and David discover they still have a lot to learn about marriage. Through many ups and downs, the young couple realizes it takes more than love to make a relationship thrive.

It takes commitment.

When Beth and David are gifted with a new blessing, they feel rewarded for all the heartache and tragedy of the past few years. Life on the road with Vinyl Fog becomes a three-ring circus, with a new set of struggles to face.

Will their marriage survive—and will their souls remain one—even as life changes around them?

The premise of Anne Carol’s Faithfully Yours is a fascinating one simply because romance novels rarely look beyond the beginnings of a relationship into what “happily ever after” truly means. These first three books—Never Let Go, Never Fall, Never Change—explore the romance between Beth and David from the moment they meet through marriage and pregnancy. Their relationship experiences many realistic ups and downs, equal parts of the frustrating and the happy. I enjoyed seeing Beth and David mature and learn on love and commitment, trust and faith through the three books, and I’m interested to see what the next book, Never Give Up, has in store for the couple.


Thanks to JustRead Tours, I received a complimentary copies of Never Let Go, Never Fall, and Never Change and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.


Anne Carol grew up reading, writing, and listening to English rock bands, obsessing over one in particular. Her obsession and endless daydreaming inspired her to write her first romance novel at age twelve. Over twenty years later she decided to re-write the story for publication. Never Let Go, the first book in her Faithfully Yours series, is a story that has been a part of Anne since childhood. When she's not reading or writing, she enjoys traveling, wine tasting, dancing, watching teen dramas, and exploring social media websites. Anne lives in Northern California with her husband and two sons.
