Well, I certainly can say I just can't remember the last time this happened to me. I tend to skim many parts in all my reads. I wasn't a person who did this but once I started to read more frequently it just started to happened. I may be loving a book but if it gets too descriptive or explanatory I tend to read faster so I can get to the good parts sooner,LOL. Well, this book helped me remember those first reads I had in the past, where every word had a meaning and every adjective was crucial to fully comprehend the book. I just wanted to keep reading so I could get to know better this 2 amazing characters. I'm not sure what it was but it just never crossed my mind to skip even a single word of this book. I guess I shall blame the author's writing style, because something definitely kept me trapped and didn't let me stop reading. Meredith Duran, know that you have found a new fan and I wont rest until I read more of your work. If the rest of your books are as good as this one (which is the only one I have read so far) I will LOVE you forever,LOL. I just adore to discover new authors.
The Heroine In this book you'll find a factory girl as a heroine. Yes, a low-class working girl in a time when only money and blood would give you power and wealth. While she grew up on the lowest of the English neighborhoods, she never gave up and sold herself for money. She always worked hard and tried to get the best of every situation, praising pride before everything. She may have little in the world, but she would never surrender. Despite this, everything changed once she discovered she was the part of the noble world. She had been stolen form her home by a resentful servant while she was very young to realize what was going on, and by some crazy and wild turn of the events she discovered she was the missing heiress of one of the most wealthy families on England.
The secret about the plot This was what I loved the most about this book. It was just 100% different form the rest of the books I have read in this genre. While we still get to read about the rich and wealthy, we get a huge POV form someone on the lowest class. We get to see how people who wasn't wealthy lived every single day of their lives, their struggles and everyday problems. And I adored this because the book was so well written I just felt transported to another time, a time where no matter what you did or how hard you tried to overcome yourself it would never happened because you had to be born fortunate. Books like this help us see how things were in the past, why so many people fought and dyed to change things and make them better. I guess it helps us to appreciate the things we have now more genuinely.
This story reminded me of Anastasia. and don't get me wrong, I just LOVE that story. Oh Ally, thank you! Thank you so much for this magnificent recommendation. (less)
