I've never heard of this author but thought I'd give this book a try. I'm so glad I did. This is a romance and an adventure story rolled into one. Th..Show More »e author has clearly researched the period meticulously which added even more interest to the novel.
I felt the characters were well drawn and the story moved along at a good pace. I cared about the characters especially the heroine Clarissa who does not lack spirit or courage in her quest to trace her missing brother.
The narrator is excellent and I think that her ability to mimic accents added to the reading.
If you are a fan of good romantic fiction then you will enjoy this book.
