I admit that I may have been at a disadvantage reading this book before reading the others in the trilogy, but I don't know if I will bother reading the others.

The story moved well, but I tire of the modern woman shoe-horned into another time. This story is set in early 19th century England. A woman raised as a gypsy longs for another life she dreams about.

I found this book not as well written as I would like. There were grammatical errors and at least one anachronism (the heroine describe her life as being "out a frame", a statement which I do not think existed before the advent of film). At one point it seemed the terms hay and straw were being used interchangeably, something which struck me as odd.

I did not find the protagonist a very sympathetic character.
