Rating: 4.0 – a sweet historical fiction
Opinion: This was a sweet, sappy historical fiction. This does a good job with giving some details about the differences between classes and lifestyles. I was surprised with the return of a character. He’s been in a couple other of Elizabeth Camden’s books and I was glad to get to know the character more. I enjoyed reading the sappy romance. I loved one of the themes was holding onto grudges and how it can affect your life. It can be easy to hold a grudge and this book talks about how it can effect others when you have a long lasting grudge. This is a good sappy romance and historical fiction book. I recommend this book for anyone who loves historical fiction.
