it was ok
Read in September, 2011

** spoiler alert ** This book was a fun/interesting idea and had adventure and romance. Everything that it seems I would love. My gripe comes in the fact that I could not really respect the heroine of the story. She has a loyalty for her sister that is admirable and goes off in search of her sisters murderer. But once she begins her affair with the mysterious Conrad, she lost her appeal to me as the heroine. She confesses throughout the novel of her guilty conscience and her knowledge that she had become a "loose woman". I hate that throughout the novel, LOVE is used as an excuse for infidelity and adultery. And then everything ends so nice and tidily and the reward for this bad behavior is of course happily ever after. Ughhh.
