I had some minor problems with the book. For a Christian (Catholic) novel, there is a lot of emphasis on sexual topics, although nothing is explicit. Some of the terminology was hard to follow. Patsie kept saying "foin" at different times," and it took me a while to realize it was dialect for "fine." "Riding coat" was a condom. Parts of the story was gripping, but other parts dragged. The end could have also been stronger. The ending didn't tie up everything with any better conclusion than if it at ended at other points. In fact, I got the impression that ups and downs and hard times would continue for Caroline and her family. Although this may be realistic, it didn't leave me feeling good about the novel.
The style of writing seemed trite and forced, but once I got used to it, it was easier to get through the story without being distracted by the style. That's the same way when I read books by authors from this historic period, I have to get acclimated to the style before I can enjoy the story.
