I love romances, but this book should not have a chest on the cover. It is not a typical romance in any way. It is extraordinarily unique, haunting, gripping, and achingly sad at times.

The writing is choppy like you'd expect if you were watching a dubbed foreign film, and yet at times, the prose is positively poetic. The author has woven an incredible tale through the darkest of times, and I am not surprised that there's a quote from Diana Gabaldon on the front cover.

I bow in awe of Ms. Bourne's writing skills. Bravo!
