The basic premise is this: After her mother dies, Hannah is left to fend for herself... alone. She is hire as a housekeeper where she is raped by the master of the house (the judge). She flees and later gives in to hunger and steals. She is caught and who presides over her trial? Her angry ex-boss. She is sentenced to work in Australia. Meanwhile, John kills a man in self defense WHILE defending his cousin (who steals his money and flees with Johns wife while John in prison). He is also sentenced to Australia.
Alright, so... I don't know how it happened but John fell in love with Hannah at first sight while aboard the prison ship. While in Australia, John falls deeper in love and Hannah also gains feelings for John.
The biggest flaw with this book is that I DON'T KNOW HOW ANY OF THIS HAPPENED!!! When did this love-falling happen? They never spent any TIME together in the book!!
I really liked Hannah. Her character was developed very nicely and you knew her feelings (excepting how she managed to fall in love with a man I thought she had contact with a mere handful of times!). You knew why she felt her guilt and why she couldn't overcome it.
John seemed likeable enough. It's just... well, I really didn't gain any insight into his character. I felt bad for him. I understood his rage. I didn't understand how he fell in love... and I don't know his feelings.
So, to sum up: I loved the plot. I loved the history. I liked Hannah and the secondary characters.Read more ›
The changes in the status of the characters is too abrupt. From bad to worse, to terrible, then, before you can soak in what has happened, their sudden relief and "salvation."
This book is just ok, very simplistic, immature writing, even though correct period words are used. It's a quick read, a couple of hours at most, but I can't really recommend it. Very cliche, you know what is going to happen before you get there. Cookie cutter writing, same old thing.
The depressing bits of this book are well written, but very dark and grim. It's not a book to read if you want to lift your mood.
