This was a short and sweet read... Well, not exactly sweet, because it dealt with some very practical themes.

A lovely story. Excellent writing with beautiful imagery. There was nothing to complain about. It's only problem is that it was a novella. That means limited character development and not much room to devise full resolution of conflicts. If you like historical novellas you will enjoy this Madeline Hunter. She is an extremely good writer.
