I haven't loved many of Jude's books lately, but this one was an exception. I don't know if it's because it's a historical or just because it's reminiscent of some of her older works. I was especially reminded of Lost Lady, Sweetbriar, and Eternity. If you didn't like those books, you probably wouldn't enjoy this either. I really liked the characters and the foundation of the core families of Edilean. One thing I didn't like: all the characters seemed to suddenly crowd in at the end of the book. It was good enough that I'm looking forward to the story of the main characters' daughter in Scent of Jasmine.
