I liked this book...did not LOVE but liked it very much. I did not like certain parts (cant give anything away so dont want to be specific)..but you knew there was still a happy ending to come, there always is. I like the length but felt the story was a little drawn out over a long period of time...Overall, a good buy and as always i like the narrator..i have read reviews where some do not but i like her.

Not your typical historical romance, this story has strong, passionate characters filled conviction about their beliefs. When the love story didn't unfold as planned I was stunned, but didn't lose interest in the story. The author wove a compelling storyline into historical fact and that added to the story's captivating effect. I highly recommend this to fans of Jo Beverly and Linda Needham whose historical romances tend to have more "weight" than most.
