I got this handed to me by a coworker as a castoff, so I honestly wasn’t expecting much. Then I saw it was a Target special. Nothing good usually comes off those shelves. But really this was pretty good, not earth shattering, but not bad. I love historical fiction, so that was its saving grace. The lesbian rights theme got a little too in my face. It seems like every book or tv show has to have at least one gay character these days to make it legit. But I suppose I’ll let them have that since that has been repressed in pop culture since forever. If it wasn’t for that, I would have shared this book with my mom, but she’s too conservative to stand for a lesbian sex scene or two. I was honestly disgusted when Rebecca’s uncle proposed. One of my coworkers actually commented on the sour look on my face when I was reading that part at lunch. So over all, I enjoyed this for the story, but not one I would want to read again; therefore I won’t keep the copy I have. Speak now if you want a copy, or it gets donated to the library.
