It is really difficult to write a review for this book because there was so much going on, so many events it's hard to really focus on one aspect.What I will say is that this book is an instant classic for me, and I've already recommended to people. You can tell that so much thought, effort, and hard work went into this book. The author truly loves her characters and you can tell. It's a great story of overcoming obstacles and hard work mixed with betrayal and murders. It's definitely a must read for those that like romance with a historical flavor.
