Having read previous books by Carolyn Miller, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to read her latest book set in Regency England. This story is set up a bit different than the typical romance book, in which each character has a chapter weaving their side of the story.
There is Jonathan and Catherine, who once were in love, but through a bad set of circumstances, ended up apart. Both disliking the other. This story brings together the love of the two in a unique and different manner.
The story I started the night before, and the next day I did as little work as possible just to finish this story. There were points where I could feel myself teary eyed and this was well within the mid-section of the book. I was nowhere near the typical drama-filled scenes normally found near the closure of the story.
It brought tears to my eyes, a smile to my lips and laughter. Truly a good author is able to produce such emotions from their writing of a story. You find yourself planted in the story and become one with the character.
I definitely recommend this book, but warn, that you will need to set aside a spot of time just to devour it. Thinking that you are going to read a chapter and then return at a later point in time may not be the best of ideas. You will not want to stop. At least, that was my own experience.
I received this book from the publisher via Netgalley. All opinions are my own.
