An absolutely brilliantly written book
Most definitely. The story is wonderfully written and thoroughly captivating. The hero and heroine are truly people you find yourself rooting for. As they wade their way through misunderstandings and other obstacles to their love you feel every heartwrenching moment right along with them. I love it.
I have read all of Lucinda Brant's novels and find them to be in a class by themselves--rich in historical detail, full of well-drawn characters, and thoroughly entertaining clear to the very last page.
TOO MANY TO LIST!!
Yes, most certainly. I nearly did.
Wonderful book, excellent narration.
