Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from enjoyably one of a kind Ashford paints a picture of the past for her audience. She brought this world to life in a subtle yet powerful way that allowed me to fully immerse myself in the story. Readers get a really good feel for the times and the lives of the characters. All the while Ashford tells a uniquely captivating tale that in turn made me giggle in surprise and gasp in suspense. Ashford tells her story with characters that are unique and quite well developed. Each one stood on their own, adding to the story as a whole. My heart broke for Mary. So few people believed in her that she stopped believing in herself. She epitomized the way that so many of us feel inside. Seeing her come to life because of the unwavering belief her husband found in her, all the while he was becoming his true self was heart-warming. The household staff was absolutely hilarious. They added not only comic relief, but also a sense of completeness to the story. This was a very enjoyable, intricately crafted romance that definitely stands out on its own. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to those who enjoy historical romances, nor would I hesitate to read more of this author’s work in the future. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
