Book Review: For Now, Forever (MacGregor Series) by Nora Roberts

Anna — Daniel’s wife of forty years — relives her remarkable courtship, when meddlesome matchmaking patriarch and self-made millionaire Daniel MacGregor faced his biggest challenge: to convince the love of his life to marry him! Here at last is the story of how Daniel wooed and won the fiercely independent Anna Whitfield and launched his formidable dynasty. Fiercely dedicated medical student Anna Whitfield couldn’t have been less suited to become Daniel MacGregor’s submissive, heir-producing wife even if she’d tried. So why was the arrogant self-made millionaire moving heaven and earth to prove she was his perfect mate?

My Thoughts

After reading the first four MacGregor books, including his children and their family ties, it was delightful to be able to see Daniel and Anna’s story. The man in the first four books was the father, the patriarch, the family man. Getting a glimpse inside of who he was as a young man, shows who he is at the core. Where he came from. To see a man with confidence in spades get tongue-tied and question himself over Anna was rewarding. He was put in his place several times and I laughed about it each time.

In contrast to his funny side, I finally understand his need to continue his family line. You get a glimpse of his past and understand his need for it. His insistence on it. I loved getting the image of the land before the big castle was built. His vision, his explanation of what he wanted to leave behind for the future MacGregors.

I loved seeing Anna as a young adult going after her medical degree. Seeing Myra before she became Ditmeyer. To see their friendship was really special. Anna’s first loss as a medical worker made me cry. It shows the kind of doctor she turned into.

Seeing Daniel and Anna’s love story was so sweet and eye-opening. Nora has the ability to show the humanity, the flaws, and that pushing past fear and scars can lead to beautiful things. Sharing a life and a family together shows what they could have missed out on. So far, this has been my favorite in the MacGregor series. On to the next…
