With Anne and Neil off to try to see if they could reconcile their relationship you could be fooled to thinking this story is just about romance but it's about so much more.
The author constructed a story around love but also a historical piece of work that is full of historical facts that if you love that sort of thing, you're going to absolutely love this. The story is told from two views, Anne's and Genevieve's so you are being fed the past and the present.
I enjoyed the book for its historical content and the two views input worked well but I felt that it did hamper the characterisation of the main characters which was a shame. I could visualise the characters but I felt detached from them, I didn't care about them enough to really fall in love with this book. I knew how the characters looked but I didn't know much about them, their personalities were just names in a book. I prefer to know more about characters, that might just be me. I think the two views side of the book was great but I wonder if that might also be why I couldn't get attached to the characters.
Had I not been sent the book request to review this then I probably would never have picked up the book. But I am glad that I did. If you want a classy romance mixed with a lot of historical references and background then you will love this.
