I'm am herbalist and it was obvious that Candace had done her research before writing. She gave just enough information that I knew she was using the right herbs but not enough information to anyone to try to copy and get in trouble.
The story kept me interested and looking forward for more. Where I could tell where some of the story would lead, there were enough twists thrown at me that I was never bored and I was kept guessing enough to make me happy.
I have found a new author to add to my reading list. Try her. If you like a good historical romance, with less heavy sex, this might be the author for you.
This was a good story. I pretty much guessed her husband's problem, but I was almost totally thrown by the villain. I say almost because there was a tiny inkling. All told, I really enjoyed the story and highly recommend it. Get the book. You won't be disappointed.
Ms. Hern masterfully unfolds their journey through her well-sculpted plotline and her multi-dimensional characters. Her protagonists, Verity and James, are complex and flawed personalities. Each one knows various degrees of pain and disappointment. They experience a gamut of emotions, such as fear, sadness, and feelings of inadequacies and snippets of happiness. They both share a common personality trait—perseverance. It is this trait that carries them through the ebb and flow of their struggles. Through the use of descriptive language and dialog the reader develops empathy for these two. I particularly enjoyed the way Ms. Hern uses actual facts like the Bride Sale to add authenticity to her story. The same applies to the details of Verity’s knowledge of herbal medicine to assist villagers with health issues.
The plot line is a credible one. The protagonists’ quest lies in their journey toward healing. To build interest there are several twists and turns which contribute to the rising action of the plot. Likewise the interplay of the secondary characters with the protagonists helps to build intrigue. I found it fascinating how Ms. Hern used several characters as antagonists. This strategy adds to the intrigue and keeps the reader’s interest and perplexes them as to who the real villain is. I also enjoyed the interaction of the primary and secondary characters which helped to build tension.
This was definitely a good read.
Not Me. Herons best, but not bad either.

This story has more adult content than some of the author's regency romances.
