The premise is well explained in the book description/blurb. Kudos to the author for that clarity in the blurb as well as in this short story of 3 chapters of roughly 10 pages each. I enjoyed watching these two days unfold in the lives of lifelong sweethearts Jack and Julienne--"Lenna" who've been promised of their own accord since childhood. Lenna has always known Jack to keep his promises, to be a man of his word, honorable, trustworthy-- so when he arrives home (late) mere 2 days before their wedding, she understandably behaves a bit badly. The questions she raises of her beloved are well-motivated and I enjoyed discovering the main characters' personalities through their reactions.
This short story is replete with themes of freedom and slavery, good vs. evil, secrets-- both justified and necessary, integrity, hope, and the ability of love to overcome all. This short *is* a romance in that we see Jack and Lenna come to terms with their doubts and commit to one another (again).
Kudos to the author! I look forward to reading more by Roseanna M. White.
Sensuality level: wholesome
Recommended to fans of historical fiction shorts and historical romance short stories.
In this introduction Ms White's novellas tells a small portion of the plot. This is the the only thing I have read from this author but I learned from this about her writing skills which I enjoyed and was easy to follow with many characters. It is a good Christian book without being aggressive, a clean romance, a good history about Andrew Jackson, I am hoping for more history events in her books, there is mystery, and secrets. The author wrote with ease in only a few pages to give us a review of her series. Also her first book 'Ring of Secrets' is already written and is on-line for sale now. This novellas is free, a short fast paced read. This is the only story I have read from Roseanna M. White. I'm hoping the series is as good as this introduction. I gave it three stars because it is an introduction to a series and Ms White is a new author to me.
For being three chapters, wow! She sure packed in a lot. I learned an element of history I didn't know about an attempted assassination and was thrown fully into the era.
Again, romance was one of the core elements of the story, but I didn't find it all-consuming like "Shadows." In a gist, there comes a misunderstanding between the two lovers, which then creates the conflict that needs to be resolved in the story. I found it interesting and would have loved to read more about Jack and Julienne.
I would rate the series as a whole of 4.5 stars. However, you need to read the whole series. The storyline is adorable because it follows this one family line down three or four generations. Great summer reading.
Here's the series list order for your convenience:
1) Ring of Secrets
2) Fairchild's Lady
3) Whispers from the Shadows
4) A Hero's Promise
5) Circle of Spies
