I thought I was going to read a light romance when I started this book. Instead I read what I would call a historical fiction book. Amazon shows this to be historical romance. Either way, it was a very good book.
The book had two stories that were dependent on each other. While it may have been a touch predictable, it certainly was still riveting. I was drawn into the life of Sophie. I wanted to hold her hand and tell her it would be okay.
Liv was a very different character. But her story was also quite engaging.
I fell in love with these women and their lives. They were both strong, determined and optimistic in their own way.
The only thing about the book I struggled with was the transition into Part a Two. I thought it seemed slow and uninteresting. That lasted less than a chapter though.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical novels. Five out of five stars.
