I was really looking forward to reading this book. It is the second one that I have read from this author. Just like the first book, I enjoyed the description of the time period. Yet, I struggled to find a connection with the characters. This was not for a lack of trying. I did a stop and go about four times and each time I got a little further but still with the same results...no emotional connection to the characters. This is just me. Sadly, I was this was not the case as the other readers really enjoyed this book. I will tell you that if I had found that connection to the characters that I would have been singing praises as well for this book.
