I had to read this for my literature class this semester.

Glyn is good at romance, but romance is not the genre for me. I guess I'm too practical to fall into the dream of vows and swoons and such nonsense. Also, I don't care for protagonists that are one-dimensional. Theodora irritated me. She was too perfect. Characters with no grit bore me.
