it was ok
bookshelves: romance

There was a good romance novel somewhere in here and the characters and premise had potential but Balogh seemed determined to bury it under a lot of guff. Very repetitive musings; abuse of italics; everyone is way too in touch with their feelings and has long earnest touchy-feely conversations that I wouldn't want to read anywhere, and felt decidedly out of place in an historical novel. Balogh went way overboard with the hero and heroine's charitable enterprises, which were absurdly identical. One of those books where you just want to send the author off to do it again.
