  1. 3 Stars Out Of 5
    Very unique plotline, but it didn't keep interested

    What a journey! Its a very unique story with lots of twists in it.

    At first, I was really captivated by the singularity of the plotline and the circumstances our main characters were when they met again, but I thought: there is no way this can work for them.

    I could see the Regency Period through new eyes, because, really, Im used to the nice side of it: elegance, balls, ladies, gentlemen, drawing rooms, and so on; but this book taught a bit of how it was like not be wealthy in that time, or to be pregnant but not married. It was interesting, I learned a lot!

    Also, it was really good to grow with the characters, they went through a lot, and the reader with them.

    However, I must say my interest went down when I reached about 33% of the book, but Im not sure why. I think it might be because the events changed so fast that it was hard for me to really connect to what was happening, and I feel the characters themselves didnt catch up very easily either, because they acted as if some twists hadnt affected them at all.

    There are some decisions characters made I couldnt understand, because they seemed so incongruent to their personalities and purposes in life that it was obvious to me they did it only to force the story to be something it wouldnt have been otherwise, which is not good. Plus, I did not like how easy everything got solved at the end.

    Its very good story, unique and all. It taught me a great deal, but I couldnt be drawn in as much as I had been in the beginning.

    Heartbreaking and Beautiful Story

    This book is a gem. It's not the normal happy romance novel. This book is deep and powerful and it will move you. I could feel Charlotte's pain with the decisions that she had to make. It was heartbreaking and yet beautiful at the same time. This story isn't just about love between a man and a woman, but it is also the love story between a mom and her child. Charlotte made some choices that sent her on a difficult path in life. As humans we all make the wrong choice sometimes and things will get difficult, but we must keep living and try to make things better for ourselves. This story will touch your heart in many ways. As sad as the story was, it also had happy moments and made me smile. It was well written and a beautiful story that I had a hard time putting down. You will love Charlotte as well as some of the other characters. I would easily recommend this book.

    I really have a deep appreciation for Julie Klassen and the gift God has given her to write with such depth.

    It is as if Jane Austin's world has returned, only we get to see a little bit of that society's underbelly. She writes with sense of compassion that is lacking in some Regency era novels.

    I also recommend the audio version of this book.

    Please read it for yourself. You won't be disappointed!

    This book went above and beyond of what I expected! It is a heart wrenching story, but beautifully and passionately written! The characters grabbed my attention quickly and my heart went out to Charlotte! Truly reminds me to be thankful of what God did for us by sending His Son!
