Enjoyed this book very much. This author has a flair for telling a story that completely engages me.

My one complaint (and the reason for the lower rating) was (view spoiler)

I liked our heroine Marina and our lead Cortland. I thought the times when they were actually together were the best parts of the books. Unfortunately, they weren't together near enough. While I enjoyed the story, I would have loved if there had been more dialog and interactions between the characters. I also would have given it a higher ...more

A charming story, but somewhat predictable. Ms. Woodward's love of the period shines throughout.
