The story of two feuding families and the the offspring who sought to promote peace through their shared attraction. But, wait, this isn't Verona(and this isn't Shakespeare). Rather, this is a reasonably entertaining read and, if pressed for a more concrete opinion, I shall simply say, "Well, I didn't DISlike it" and quickly change the subject to something about which I have a more decided opinion. This clever diversionary tactic never fails to call attention to one's inability to form an opinio ...more

Two feuding families in England find a need to try to bring peace to their family and town. But is rough going with the town divided, the church divided and the families themselves divided because of the generations of hatred for each other. One man tries to bring peace and love to the mix with disasterous results.

Unusual look at fetal alcohol syndrome during these early years - 1813. Rather realistic look at the difficulty of changing entrenched behaviors and feelings.

I loved this book! Read a little over the last half in one night, I just couldn't put it down! I loved the setting & time it was set in. Such a different world than our own! Predictable that Olivia & Randolph would end up together, but there was so much that lead them to that place, a great story!

It was a good story. I was a little disappointed by the ending, not that the two main characters ended up together (a given) but the language used was a bit over the top, not so realistic.
Historical novel about two families with centuries of feuding between them, combined with controversy in the local church. A bit predictable, but mostly enjoyable. Good holiday read.

Awful. Just awful. Still looking for a good romance.
