I love period pieces and this one was no exception. However it wasn't an exceptional read I did truly enjoy it. There were a few things that I did not understand about the book like why he ran away but I guess there are questions in every book you read. If the author gave you all the answers then it's not much of a story is it. I don't know if I missed a key detail that answers that question.. I understand why he should have ran but not why he ran.Anyways, I loved the characters, loved the general plot and idea behind the story and I loved how it flowed and kept pace. Great story and I will definitely be on the lookout for more of Erica's books!
4.5 out of 5 stars
