This book is not well written. So much so, I had trouble writing my summarization. I felt like it kept going in the same circles, with the same problems, nothing connecting well. I could not tell the passage of time and there were strange, one sentence, descriptive paragraphs littered throughout. I was excited to read this book, but was highly disappointed. In fact, while I remember reading the book, I couldn’t really tell you the gist of it. The beginning and end stand out most in my mind, but the middle was not entertaining and not memorable. If you want to read a 19th century romance book, look somewhere else.
