This book was worse than the first book! The story is so depressing. I only kept reading because I wanted to know that her story got better! Sadly it doesn't, and book 3 is only slightly better.

Although I was still intrigued by the main character, I think the author bit off more than she could chew with the scope of this novel. It felt like she was trying to write an epic that didn't quite come off. All in all, though, I enjoyed her descriptions of the Indian/British mix and the comparisons of India vs. Great Britain. It seems there are so many books about British India, and so few where the characters end up living in both places.

This story brought out images of the early pioneers--traveling by ship, making a home in Nauvoo, and then leaving it behind to settle in the Salt Lake Valley. I was so caught up in Charlotte and Seth's relationship, that it even broke my heart to lose him so suddenly. One thing I enjoyed was picturing Winston growing up into manhood.

After really having problems with the first book of this series I have to say this second book is a little better. I just can't get over the fact that the main character is living her whole life regretting the loss of her "true love" back in India. Her life is so sad. Even the events that are suppose to be happy still have this shadow of regret and "what might have been" hanging over her.

This book was historical fiction. It was of a family that came from England to America to join with the Latter-Day-Saints (Mormons) in Zion. I like stories of the early pioneers. They had such struggles, yet found happiness in life. I think I liked this sequel better than the first one.

Better than I expected. The characters are sympathetic and it captures some of the flavor of London in the early 1800s.

This was a good sequel. Kept me captivated and moved along very nicely. I love this story, so sweet, but filled with pain and sorrow (even though that gets resolved).

This is the second book in a trilogoy by Susan Evans McCloud. It is well written, moves at a good pace and brings up all your emotions. I highly recommend all three. I can loan them to you.
