If you like historical romances like I do then you will love, love, looove this book. I have to say this book was amazing! I could not put it down. When I find an author that can pull me into a story such as she did I feel she deserves much credit for it. I come across many good stories, but some lack that ability to pull a reader in and place them within the story and era. I very much visualized this wonderfully written story. It's a historical romance, which I do love to read on occasion. There are many hearts broken, lives lost, and relationships created within it. It's a heartwarming story of a woman in the 18th century doing her best to keep a balanced life with as many troubles that befall on her and her family. It gives a little perspective on what was expected of women of that age and time, and what would happen to them should they try to be strong and go against the grain. It's a powerful story. I would recommend it to anyone. I give it 5/5 stars.
