I almost didn’t get through this book due to the parts of the plot that seemed to move along at a snails pace. The rest of the book was interesting and for the most part told an interesting story. I was not thrilled with a particular point in the story but it didn’t take too much away from the book as a whole. The characters seem true to the setting, which works for the story but made it a bit more difficult to connect with them. I’d recommend this to fans of the setting or historical romance. I received an evaluation copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest opinion and review. In no way has this influenced our opinion.
