This was a difficult book to rate. For writing style and being well-written, I would give it five stars but the actual story saddened me so that it's hard to give it a high recommendation. I like happy endings; I like satisfactory stories; I like to see fairness in the world and true love win out and last. And while I don't want to give anything away, there was too much sadness, loss of love and hope. There were sacrifices made that were heartbreakingly beautiful. The author did a wonderful job presenting the story in an interesting present and past fashion and painted such a clear picture of the life of the characters that one couldn't help but be drawn into the story and the people's lives and you just don't want them to experience any pain and hurt. Of course, life is full of pain and hurt, but that's why I like to read - to escape that and fall into an adventure that takes me away.
