Good story - very good narrator

It's a lovestory. It's based on a story from the Bible, but I'd only heard a very short description of the source material previously. I think this book can stand on it's own as a semi-historical lovestory.

I liked the main female character more than the main male character. I actually liked the bad guy more than the main male character for almost half the book.

You do have to keep in mind that the main female character is deeply religious. She constantly worries about how her new life conflicts with her religious beliefs. It can get a bit irritating, but her religion is a big part of the plot.

You also need to remember that this is a historical novel. Women were not seen as equals. Rich and powerful men were expected to have large harems. Don't expect modern views or gender equality.

I liked the book. I really liked the voice of the narrator,

Teenager voices!

I liked the story but the narrator made the characters sound like whiny 21st century teenagers. It was very distracting at times.
