In Acts of Love, Judith Michael's most deeply realized story yet, the many acts of love - discovery, friendship, hope, trust, perseverance in the face of doubt, constancy in the face of fear and rejection - are explored and dramatized as they make a broken life whole again. An odyssey of the heart begins the moment theater director Lucas Cameron discovers a box of letters left behind by his deceased grandmother, the famous stage actress Constance Bernhardt. The letters were written by her protege Jessica Fontaine, who disappeared from the stage years before.

Although she refuses to return to New York and the life she abandoned, Jessica and Lucas begin a correspondence that strengthens and sustains her. This lifeline helps her to return to the career from which she was cruelly wrenched, and to the man who steadfastly loves and believes in her. One hesitant step at a time, she begins her journey back to her art, and to a life where anything even love is possible

  • Very good story. I really enjoyed it.

  • I liked it but really liked Deceptions better. Deceptions had a little more intrigue. I’ll read more of their books.

  • I found it slow at first and then it got better as the book went on.

  • I like all of her books.

  • I like the detailed narrative of putting together a play from beginning to completion-fascinating.

  • This book was sent to a friend in the hospital, because she likes the author. She got it quickly and said it was in good condition.

  • World famous stage actress, Jessica Fontaine is involved in a train accident in Canada which mars her beauty and cripples her body. She has been the protege of a former great actress, Constance Cameron, who had nurtured her talent and who had tried for years to foster a relationship with her equally talented grandson, Luke, a top Broadway producer.

    After the accident, Jessica becomes a recluse on a small island off the US coast, ignoring all overtures from friends and show biz people to pick up the threads of her former life. Following the death of Constance, Luke discovers among her posssessions, a small chest, filled with years of letters from Jessica, and after reading them all, is drawn to the actress and determined to meet her. He tracks her down and, after an initially rocky start, they are so mutually attracted that they enjoy a week of sizzling romance which Luke is determined to continue. Jessica is still undecided about any future for them and, with a complete lack of confidence in her new, unglamorous appearance, bolts, literally hiding out in Sydney, Australia.She tentatively begins a career as a play director after meeting and befriending a dynamic woman who guides her to a new beginning in theatre. Of course, as in any good love story, she is pursued by letters and faxes from Luke and it's these communications between them, in wonderful prose, that form the basis of the ever growing understanding of each others deep seated fear of commitment but very real love and need. This will probably be classed as a "womans" book but I found it to be a great read and enjoyed every page.

  • Have you ever had a dream where you are trying to walk thru ankle- deep mud, water, sand (pick one) in heavy boots, and each step is almost impossible?? That's what I started to experience about a third of the way thru this book. The main charactors, Luke and Jessica, talk, talk, talk, deep serious conversations that go on and on, and if they are not doing that, they dissect everything-- acting, directing, etc. On and on. I started skipping pages, and when I started reading again, they would still be talking about the same thing. I started skipping more and more, and finally I just didn't care anymore. These charactors are the most self absorbed, dull people I have ever encountered. Even the grandmother who had passed away was long-winded in her letters. A lot of the book is written in the form of letters, and boy, are they boring.
