I recommend this book for many reasons, but mainly because we’re going through a pandemic right now and I think this book will have you feeling better! The characters are good people going through difficult times and the length of this book allows the.author enough time to fully develop the plot and relationships. There’s several surprises along the way to keep you
enthralled ‘til the last page.
I liked this story. The characters were likeable...most of them. They each had their own vivid personality, including the villains. It was nice that the social classes crossed lines and worked together in helping Thea gain the inheritance from her mother that was rightfully hers. There were some daring adventures that may have been a bit far fetched, bit it was exciting to read and see how it would end up. I enjoyed it. Recommeded
