    2. Pretty good story but not really my type of book - too typical romance.I only read 300 of the 440 pages - just skimmed over the last pages to figure outwhat happened.

    3. I'm impressed by the historical detail the author used in the book, but I found the story itself unengaging.

    4. Have read a number of her books and the difference in them never ceases to amaze me. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am now looking to see what other historical fictions she has written.

    5. Gave it up 1/4 of the way through. Just too slow going. The writer put in too many unnecessary sentences. Might have been a good story if more tightly written.
