Read from September 12 to 13, 2011 — I own a copy, read count: 1

3 stars for the writing, 2 stars for the story. Lots of quirky and interesting historical details, but I felt a bit cheated by the story. When I read a romance, I guess I expect. . . a romance! With a hero, a heroine, and a happily-ever-after ending.

This book provides a great heroine, but no hero or happily-ever after. I understand Deeanne has written a sequel; maybe it will contain a bit more resolution in regards to Essie's love life.

As with the other book I've read by Deeanne Gist, I thought this got too physical at times. Deeanne does tend to push the envelope for this genre - i.e., Christian historical fiction.
