Mini-synopsis: Christine Rose lives an ideal life in a beach suburb of Los Angeles with her husband, Leo. Whilst on summer break from her teaching responsibilities, Christine sees Hollywood’s rendition of her favorite Gothic romantic musical, featuring a mysteriously magnetic actor with haunting, haunted eyes. Will his response to her letter help her cope with the tragedy that rips her world apart? Fascinated by her acuity and racked with the lonely isolation of fame, Erik pursues the Californian woman through an affair of words. He is as determined to open Christine’s heart as she is to save him from his self-imposed solitude. But before they can dream of what lies in the future, they must come to grips with their pasts, as well as the myriad of obstacles fate and fame place in their way. Set in Los Angeles, Iceland, London, and Scotland this globetrotting novel visits the disparate worlds of quiet family life and the lightening paced celebrity of movie making. It interweaves two life stories, unfolding half a world apart, in a novel of courage, strength and love. The author’s extensive travel and residence in England and Scotland make this read fun and scintillatingly “Brit”.

“I’ve just read “Soul in His Eyes” by Christine London and I was relishing every page, it’s a fantasy that every admirer of a gorgeous Scottish Movie Star would love to have, that’s why I just LOVED this book!! Ms London gave me a wonderful insight into the Hollywood scene, and also the hero reminded me of a very HOT Scottish actor making movies in Hollywood now, there are many things that are similiar, and the read is just a wonderful dream. I was smiling with each Chapter that I read, as I imagined that the heroine of the book was me. I highly recommend that you buy “Soul in His Eyes” as it’s a wonderful read. I hated to finish reading Ms. London’s story and I KNOW that I will be reading it again. If you want to know who the Scottish actor reminds you of, buy the book and read it, you won’t be disappointed at all!”
