it was amazing

Jesse's quest to support her family and learn photography engaged me, but what I found most compelling was the story of her relationship with her employer, as two honorable people with the best of intentions come dangerously close to crossing the line. A much harder story to write than either a traditional love story with a happy ending, or a sordid tale of unbridled passion.

The author always sets her historical novels in beautifully constructed and well-researched settings. Her descriptions of photography when it was a budding art really enriched the novel, as did the realization at the end of the book that Jesse was a real woman (the author's grandmother).
