This book was just ok. I liked Harrison's character, and Foy, Lily's younger brother. But I didn't like how quickly Lily fell in love with Harrison. And I really didn't like how Lily kept changing her mind about which man to marry, whether or not she truly loved Harrison, and whether or not Harrison truly loved her. Her constant vacillating made it seem like she lacked self confidence.
Overall, not a bad book. For free it was an ok read. But it wasn't a favorite.
The only thing that bothered me at all with this book, was occasionally I felt the dialogue flopped around a bit. The characters seemed mature and beyond their years at times, and then juvenile and childish at others. I guess we can all be that way at times though.
In closing, I would encourage anyone who loves historical romance to give this book a try. It is finely crafted and highly entertaining.
There was lots of crying (by Lily), some manipulation, squeaky clean romance and a glance into the old South and the lifestyle during this period of time.
The author apparently did some thorough research, but I found many of her descriptions stemming from it too wordy and lenghty. They were well-done and added to the historical feel of the novel, but they were too long and needed to be condensed or interspersed and woven in at different places. Emma's thoughts and reflections often sounded immature for an eighteen-year-old who had a quick mind and high intelligence, which is how she was portrayed. I also thought the resolution was a bit simplistic, where Emma just showed her parents some Bible verses, and they suddenly came to see things as she did. Still, I did enjoy this story.
