I was a bit skeptical about this book, because I don't usually read Historical Romance (unless you count time-travel fanfics).
I can honestly say that I was not disappointed at all! this book took a little time to read because life got in the way, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the characters, and even though sometimes I disagreed with the way they acted, every questionable action was analyzed and the emotions behind it were explained.
I loved how I could hear the strong accent in my head when I read it, and that while she wrote how the words sounded, it wasn't too hard to understand, as it is with many other books.
I loved how Lally was such a strong female character and that even in the hardest of times, when many would choose to give up on everything, she took matters into her own hands and wouldn't let anybody do the dirty work for her- I found it quite inspiring.
Because it was a Historical Romance book, I was afraid it would be boring, slow paced and not much action going on- that was definitely not the case! the book was filled with wonderfully intricate twists, turns and conspiracies.
Read it , and let me know what YOU think!
