Heartbreak and grief touch every soul at least once in a lifetime, and Ranata Suzuki translates those raw emotions into words. The Longest Night combines strikingly poignant quotations, powerfully emotive poetry, and captivating silhouette imagery to form a mournful lover's journal that explores a side of love that is deep, dark, and hauntingly beautiful.
Each of the book's elements are skillfully woven together to reveal fragments of thoughts and feelings that seem almost to belong to the listener as years of painful longing are condensed into the context of a single night.
The journal begins with "Sunset", in which poems convey the initial feelings of shock and loss first felt when a relationship with a loved one ends. As the poetry descends into an emotional downward spiral, the book progresses into its next chapter, "Darkness", in which emptiness, jealousy, sorrow, and despair are passionately portrayed.
The concluding chapter, "First Light", sees the gradual dawning of a new outlook. The final poems express a gratitude for what once was, an acceptance of what now is, and come to the uplifting conclusion that even though a relationship can be fated to end tragically, the memories gained and lessons learned from it are, in their own way, treasured gifts that will last a lifetime.
A book for anyone who has found themselves separated from someone they love no matter the circumstance, The Longest Night is a companion for the broken heart on the painful emotional journey that is losing someone you love from your life. Its words serve as a comforting reminder, whether you are travelling this road or have recently completed this journey yourself, that, despite the loneliness you may sometimes feel along the way, none of us walks this path alone.

In lieu of stuffy biographical sketches, Engel provides fascinating anecdotes.
You’ll never look at these literary giants the same way again.

Ordinarily, Lady Fiona Ormiston wouldn't think of forming an alliance with an ungroomed, barbaric Highlander, but now, by request of the king, a brazen stranger and outsider is to be her husband. Driven by her sense of duty, Fiona leaves the comfort of her home to marry the rugged knight, but when she surrenders herself to Sir Adham MacFinlagh's powerfully passionate - and shockingly tender - touch, she finds herself in bed with a man whose ties may lie with an enemy of the throne.
Fiona isn't the only one who feels torn; falling for his beautiful, willful wife forces Sir Adham to confront the conflicting forces influencing him. With whom does his allegiance lie - a man who hopes to overthrow the king or the bride who stole his heart?
