Oh my goodness! I could not love this book more! Maili has been a favorite character for books now. I just knew there had to be more to Cavenray than we got to see in the last book! There was adventure and suspense with their romance. It was so beautifully told! I had to force myself to put the book down when it was about to get suspenseful because I knew I wouldn't be able to stop after that and I needed sleep!
I highly recommend not just this book; but any book Elizabeth Johns has written. I started with Surrender the Past and have read every book through in order at leas 3 times now. The characters are so well written and have a depth to them I don't see in every author's work. She isn't afraid to tackle difficult subjects and show us the humanity in every person. That alone sets her work apart. I cannot wait to read the next book!
