My Review:
This book had hints that reminded me of one of my all time favorite books, Celia Garth. Only hints, but it was very good. Ms. Frantz delves deeply into the history of the time period, along with how a woman of means would have been helpless and be used as a pawn, even with a strong character and resolve.  It was not just easy to go and make a life on your own, and forced marriages were commonplace, especially among the wealthy as well as the poor.
I thought this book did a wonderful job of helping you live that. You felt her desperation, frustration and also resolve, as she set out to sacrifice what she could for those she loved.
I am looking forward to reading Jocelyn Green’s book as well, which was mentioned in the notes at the end of the book, that while not related, has some of the same notes of flavor.
A deeper historical novel, much like her others, I wouldn’t really classify this as a romance, although it has some romantic overtones and select scenes, there is nothing that would not be appropriate for a high school student.
This book is available where books are sold and on sale from Amazon right now on eBook for under $2.
I obtained this book from the publisher. The opinions contained herein are my own.
