Heart warming

This was a lovely read for history romance lovers. I was caught up in a roller coaster ride of emotions. The book was convalescent of the joy of wealth found through the love of family and loyalty . I would have lived to see more passion between the characters .

Did not enjoy the read. Waste.
May 17th, 2014
It was not worth the time - and I cannot recall if I paid for this book but it certainly is not worth my money. The language and dialogue were very, very poor. I say this because not once was it befitting of a story supposedly set in 1899 or thereabouts. The problem with these modern-historic "novels" is that the authours tend to forget the very important part of its historic nature: language, dialogue, setting, all these things must reflect that but apart from the fact that they rode "horse-drawn carriages and buggies" this story might as well have been set in 1999! I didn't enjoy also the overused, abused plot of a jaded millionaire/ billionaire being swept of their feet by a common yet beautiful woman who spoke her mind yet ironically possesed a weak sense of self-respect. Dry, hardly engaging - and really, I don't know why I always hold some expectation of so-called "historic novels" that are written by modern authors. Next time just remove the time prefix and don't bother telling your readers about which century or era it is set in - because if they are learned and read widely and extensively, chances are they won't believe you. Another disappointment.

An Astonishingly amateurish read!
December 23rd, 2013
I really don't like being so critical - but this book is so bad that it is almost beyond a serious critique. I read some comments which said folk like 'simple to read' stuff sometimes. Well, so do I, but there are limits. This is not just a simple read, it is an unbelievably bad read. I find it difficult to believe this is by a real professional author. I ended up skimming through and then giving up. Rarely have I been so bored. There is no character development, no sense of either time or location; there is a totally up imaginative and predictable story with comic book plot lines and the dialogue was beyond unreal. Did the author actually try reading it out loud? This is undoubtedly the worst book I have ever downloaded to my iPad. It's not even worth it as a free ebook.
