Won from Library Thing Early Reviewers (Nov) Overall Rating 3.50 Story Rating 3.75 Character Rating 3.25 NOTE: This was a very quick read–I did it all in one setting. The pacing and storytelling were done excellently. What I Loved: Martha Russell was a strong leading lady with a lot of backbone. She knew what had to be done in order to help other people and was willing to do it. How her story played out and the ultimate ending were perfectly within her character’s characteristics. I was very impressed with that. What I Liked: While not as enduring as Martha, I felt that Theo Mirkwood was a dashing leading man. While I knew it would all work out in the end, it took awhile for me to warm up to him. Complaints: I would have liked a little more romance–especially towards the end. It seemed to wrap up a little too quickly

NOTE: Totally irked over cover—don’t describe a guy as long black hair (which I totally pictured) and then have a guy with short hair on the front. Sorry that is just a cover pet peeve of mine.

NOTE: This was a fantastic historical romance. I was able to escape into the story for a few hours and that is always a good thing.
