The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope is an unconventional and passionately romantic love story that is as breathtaking and wondrous as The Time Traveler’s Wife and The Story of Edgar Sawtelle.

During WWII, teenager Evelyn Roe is sent to manage the family farm in rural North Carolina, where she finds what she takes to be a badly burned soldier on their property. She rescues him, and it quickly becomes clear he is not a man…and not one of us. The rescued body recovers at an unnatural speed, and just as fast, Evelyn and Adam fall deeply in love.

In The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope, Rhonda Riley reveals the exhilarating, terrifying mystery inherent in all relationships: No matter how deeply we love someone, and no matter how much we will sacrifice for them, we can only know them so well…

Rhonda Riley is a graduate of the creative writing program at the University of Florida. This is her first novel. She lives in Gainesville, Florida.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Enchanting This novel was like nothing that I've ever read before. The story is enchanting so the novel becomes a page turner! It felt like a meta-physical novel that was well grounded in both plot and character development.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So different! I want to give this book a 4.5/5. The storyline was so different and interesting from anything out there. At times, it did remind me of Tuck Everlasting, but at the same time was a whole different thing. There were a few "wtf" moments, but in a good way that just made me want to keep reading to find out what the heck was going to happen next. My only complaint is that there are a lot of gaps where we don't hear anything about Evelyn's family of origin for quite some time, and one of the middle chapters gets a little boring. But things pick up very quickly again after that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from far fetched I was very disappointed in this book that I did not even finish it. Once the character turned into "Adam", I thought I have had enough.
