Parts ok, parts oh my slow, & parts unbelievable. (For example, I find it hard to believe that the law courts even then ever moved THAT fast.)
This storyline had more substance than expected which I appreciated. The suits and countersuits filed added to the tension of the story as well as the attempted abductions of the main character who has escaped from her cruel uncle and aunt who are trying to force her into an unwanted marriage with a most unpleasant man. Of course, the ending was wrapped up rather tidily in a rather quick fashion but everyone loves a happy ending so it still satisfied.
