really liked it

I liked this book if, for no other reason, that it broke some of the stagnantly boring rules of the romance genre and did something a little different. The beginning of this book was particularly engaging as the first person narrator seemed to very much be telling Jude Deveraux's own story. There was a genuine feel to the character that I enjoyed.

The romance itself takes place over several lifetimes as two soulmates find themselves the victim of a past mistake. This portion of the book was a bit over the top, in my opinion, but I'm skeptical of soulmates even in their milder forms. In the Elizabethan era, the story of two children born on the same day who grow up together, knowing one another's feelings, unable to be separated, was a bit over the top.

But setting aside my prejudice, this was an enjoyable read. I recommend it to any romance reader looking for something that's not the same old story rehashed a million times.
