Not revolutionary in terms of romance novels, but there were a few unique things that set this apart. I liked that the author embraced the fact that this is a romance novel and created enough fantasy so that the reader has a fun read while having enough reality and historic accuracy that this isn't completely unrealistic. I also liked that she chose a widow instead of a young inexperienced virgin. I feel like there are too many romances about the virginal heroine protecting her virginity.
Had I read her review I would have perhaps not purchased this book. However, after reading it I purchased the next in line. Yes they do repeat her bad marriage etc, but I would be the first to have zero patience for repetition and this story only mentioned that when it was needed. The reviewer goes on to talk about Mary Balogh. Now that is a writer who can eliminate about 1/2 her stories loaded with mind babble and repetitions,to end up with a good book.
I liked this book. So much so that I finished it all in a day. It was real and the reader can feel the despair the sisters felt. I am not crazy about the picture on the cover (silly look on his face and she is not the dropped jaw gorgeous heroine described in the book). Fabulous narrator!
