I was really trying to get into this one. I had heard great things about it, but sadly I just couldn't do it. The writing was too abstract for me and I couldn't get into or even like the characters because the descriptions were too round and broad and not specific. I had no idea about Nathaniel and the "love" wasn't apparent at all, I couldn't understand the attraction. I'm sorry to say that this one fell flat.

The story idea was original, though, and the cover is absolutely beautiful, but...I don't think that is correct period dress. Beautiful though.
