Forgiveness. Forgiveness was but an opening of one's heart to another so that compassion and understanding could flow in. Only then could one forgive in the truest sense of the word. The journey to that destination, however, asked as much of oneself as it did of the one who had injured you. Indeed it asked far more.

This is what Maggie Robertson learns. What she must fight her nature with every breath to embrace. Maggie finds herself used as a pawn in the hands of an unloving father and cruel sui
Takes Place: 1694
Reading Level: High school
Content Level: Adult (It could be high school, however it was just meant to be for adults)
Violence: There are mentions of family feuds, several characters are poisoned, one of the main characters is shot, and someone dies when he falls off a cliff.
Swearing: None
Sexual Content: Kissing. One character (the villain) tries to 'take' a girl so she would be shamed into marrying him. (However, this does not TAKE place in the book)

While I enjoyed this book almost as much the first in the series, the inadequacies of Kathleen Morgan's writing as a bit more obvious in this one. It's still a guilty pleasure so I'll hold on to it. However, it is not the best example of the genre.

For example, the male protagonist, Adam Campbell, comes across as very feminine, at least in the way he thinks about emotional things. Don't confuse my meaning. I'm not saying that he comes across as effeminante, definitely not. What I am saying is tha

This book was good and bad all at the same time. The plot was intricately woven, and there was good character development of more than just the two main characters which I appreciated. However, her writing doesn't flow as easily as it should to me and the main character, Maggie, is unlikeable, which makes the book really frustrating throughout. There were also a couple missed opportunities in my mind to show their building relationship instead of just telling me that it happened. I.e., the trip ...more

To start, I actually enjoyed this book more than the previous one in the series until near the end. The main character's personality really began to rub me the wrong way by then. At first, I understood her fears, doubts, and struggles.. However, in a story, when there is conflict resolved you usually anticipate it to stay that way and either the story ends or there are remaining conflicts. When the main character lapsed back in to doubt for the third, fourth, hundredth? time, I found myself irri ...more

This was a hard read to get into. It seemed to go on forever and was a bit repetitive. Maggie was not the smartest heroin in a book. One minute they were in love forever and the next they were next to hating each other. I would of liked to read more of their love and less of her hate. I really can't recommend this book.

I love a good love story and this was by far one of my favorites. I actually went into the book expecting not to like it but goodness was I completely surprised. Excellent story with wonderful lessons.

Can Maggie get any more irritating? I get she's had a tough past, but come on. It wS like the author just wanted to and couldn't think do any thing else to write about. Really disappointing.

Maggie has been betrayed her entire life by her parents, finally she leaves to fulfill her dream of becoming a nun. She is fulfilling God's calling for her life... or is she? This was well written and I was surprised by a number of plot twists.
This is a good book, though not as good as the first book in the series. It took me a bit to get into the book and several parts seemed to be really slow going. But, it was still interesting and I thought it ended pretty well.

Thanks for the loan, Elizabeth! :)

Very good ending to the series, even though Maggie could be extremely frustrating sometimes. :)

ebook contained a lot of editing errors, including editor comments. Not an endearing main character... she's terribly immature and inconsistent.

I really liked this book, but i just think it didn't quite deserve five stars. It was interesting, but i thought it did drag a little bit at parts.
This was okay. I got really frustrated with Maggie though. She seemed to change her mind so frequently that she just annoyed me. The ending was too rushed as well. 2.5 stars.

Very good. I liked the part where Maggie was taking care of her friend after he had arrived in the nunnery infirmary.
