Historical fiction at its best
Mystery and romance are expertly combined into one emotionally charged, unforgettable story.
It's one of those wonderful books that sweeps you along, whisking you away from the real world, immersing you in the love, drama and mysteries within its pages. Epic, heart-breaking, it's a book that will stay with me for a very long time. I loved it.
