I am only 1/3 of the way through and it really is torture to finish it. I myself also loved A Lady at Last but this one is horrible. Ariela professes her love to Emilian after what, literally one day? and in that day he treats her with nothing but disrespect and hatred. The first 4 hours are filled with nothing but Emilian's revengeful nature and spouting of his hatred for the English. If I hear the term Gaugo (sp) one more time i think i will puke. I agree with the other reviewer, the heroin in this one is no heroin but a week, spineless ninny and it is unbelievable she just accepts Emilians cruelty and says "oh but i love you". Granted as i said I am only about 5 hours into it and dreading the remaining (but i refuse to waste my money so i am really hoping it gets better). I really to recommend you save your money and your credit, this one is terrible and i usually have a pretty good tolerance for even the mediocre. Oh and i find the narrator HORRIBLE and nasaly sounding in most of the characters.
