My Rating: ♥♥♥♥
First of all, I must say that the cover drew me in. It was so lush and exotic it demanded of me to see what secrets were alluded to in the blurb. The storyline kept me reading, and the setting, made me want to pack my bags. The characters were richly described. In fact, there were distinctly unpleasant characters that were maddening. There were curious characters that made me question them and their motives. Even with that in its favor and as I said before, the setting was lush and amazing, I found the story a little long winded on occasion. But once again I would get caught up in the locale.
The historic value was great and it shared the story of a life I knew nothing about. I think it told a beautiful love story that captured the heart of the characters and their life. Dinah Jefferies did a wonderful job of taking me from Kentucky to Sri Lanka.
With so much intrigue and secrets, it was one of those books that you thought about when you weren’t actually reading. I was provided a copy of this book from the publishers and Blogging for Books. this is an award winning novel. It won in 2016
If you like Charlotte Bronte type of suspense, this will entertain you and keep you wondering. There was more Historic fiction to the genre than mystery. It told a full story.
