Rating: 3.8 – a good, sappy historical fiction

Opinion: This was a good historical fiction. It focused a lot on the family’s history and finding about their past. There were parts that felt a little jerky. Parts of the plots continued then suddenly stopped. Other things happened and minds were changed quickly. I feel like one or two things weren’t carried through all the way. Overall this was a great book. It was pretty sappy romance wise. There was a fair sense of mystery. I enjoyed this book. It was a quick and easy read. If you’re looking for a good historical fiction, then I recommend this book.
