Compelling, intriguing, heartwarming
I think she brings it to life. I recently read one of Milan's books and it was fine, but I liked this one better. Jasicki is one of my favorite narrators.
The plot centered among other things, on wife abuse and depression. Lady Kathleen tried to save abused women. Her husband who had bouts of depression tried to overcome it.
He needed to prove to himself and his wife that he could overcome it and be there for her when she was in danger. Their story is very heartwarming.
I would recommend this book to a select few of my friends. I personally did not like the setting or the plot of the book, and I know its a romance novel but I still expect a good story.
Never judge a book by its movie
All the different back stories, that are going on, around the main characters... It could be very confusing, but Milan made it work.
I don't think there is one, it's pretty unique.
Loved Lady Kathleen, she was quite the "kick ass" heroine.
When Ned reveals why he had really left her for 3 years. Also a scene which I cannot reveal otherwise it would spoil the book. Sorry!!!
It seems slow at the beginning, but it REALLY is worth it!
