I tried really hard to get into this book. I read several chapters and just could not make myself fall in love with this book. My typical reading style is books that are not terribly wordy and I found that this book was a tad bit wordy. It has lots of big words that may have been how people talked way back then but I think it makes the flow of the book hard to get. This is the third book in the series and although I didn't read the other two books first, I did alright with the back story. The main problem that I had not reading the other two books is I felt like there was a ton of stuff that was wrapped up in all of the characters that I didn't know. I wasn't confused, I was just left wondering about everything that had happened before. So, my recommendation is to read the other two books first for that reason only. I loved the front cover. It was very pretty and match the description perfectly of the main character. I did not enjoy the main character of the book. She seemed whiney instead of concerned which is what I think the author was going for. I actually would like to read the other two books in the series, because their characters are present in this book and they seemed interesting. While this book wasn't my favorite, I would like to try another book by Tracie.
I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my review. A positive review was not required.
