I relished this book and couldn't put it down. Marilyn has a delightful way of developing her characters, so that the reader connects with them. However she leaves enough secret that you are compelled to read on and some parts had me on the edge of my seat. I was completed enamored with her charming characters and loved the familiar Victorian setting. I am looking forward to finding out what happens in the next installment.
This is such a beautiful romance between the innocent good-hearted beauty Ellen and the seemingly wonderful older man Tom... I couldn't put it down and read it one rainy Saturday, relishing every word.
