...Bound by Love has many plot twists that will keep the reader guessing at what will happen next. The poignant characters and their situations are particularly well drawn. The hero's tragic childhood makes the resilient man very appealing. This reader hopes that Ms. Layton's next novel with feature the younger brother.

Kristina Wright
The Literary Times

...In this heart warming tale, Edith Layton creates a hero that is handsome, yet scarred; strong, yet vulnerable. Jared is a man without a name and Della is his savior, even if he doesn't realize it. Their love story is poignant and special, all the more so because Ms. Layton shows them as children growing up in a new world and finding their way together. Bound by Love is a lovely tribute to the power of love and the importance of friendship and family.
