This novel was amazing. I couldn't put it down, and while that sounds cliche, it's true. There have a handful of books that I have enjoyed that much lately, and this is one of the top 2. Historical romance at its finest - and not just romance, but the story of two young women's journeys to love, faith, and finding themselves and their place in life. And of course, that's never quite what it seems... I recommend with two eager thumbs up! =) Kudos, Nancy!
