it was amazing

I loved, loved, loved this book. Although this is Julie Klassen's debut novel, her writing speaks to the heart. It reminds me of Austen and Bronte and of course after visiting her website it didn't surprise me that they are an inspiration to her. I always enjoy books that teach me things about history. Little facts thrown out to the reader that leave them wanting to know a bit more about the period of time the story was set in. Saying that, I can't can't in good conscience share exactly what they are because unless I happen to slip, I really do hate spoiling a story for the next reader. At the beginning, I really believed the storyline would be predictable, but there were a few twists I never would have predicted. Let me just say that my heart literally ached for Charlotte. She is courageous and clever and while she isn't perfect, she holds to her faith and her integrity.
