This is my first book by this author and I’m sure it won’t be my last. I have to admit that I started and restarted this book 2 times within the firs..Show More »t chapter before I continued further. I think it was the narration, as it took me a while to get into her rhythm of speaking. But, I’m glad I didn’t give up.
Steeped in history, this is a truly gripping story that is filled with heartfelt characters. It is a believable story that deals with family conflicts, revenge, and forgiveness. It moves along at a good pace and definitely holds interest throughout. Both the main characters, Annyn and Garr, have well developed personalities that draw you in to their world. Their romance is engaging, challenging, and so very sweet.
This story has “Christian” elements which gives dimension to the personalities of the main characters. These moral “standards” increased understanding of the character's motivations which added to the believeability within that time period in history.
If you enjoy history, heartfelt strong characters, engaging story, and romance (no detailed sex) then this one is worth a credit. I will definitely be ordering the next in this series.
Normally I'm not a review type person. But because books don't have a rating system like movies, and it'd prefer books less then "R" if they were rate..Show More »d, I'm trying to help others maneuver around this same issue I find frustrating. This book reads like a great historical romance in all ways except w/o the explicit sex details. Thank you!
