Really sucked you in, then really slow, then sucked you back in... Ending was not great. Most scenes in the book were very descriptive, however the ending lacked description. I had to reread the last few pages to realize what was going on. Read full review

Not my favorite. Second time I've read it for book group and I was sure it ended differently! I understand women had no power back then but I think Lavinia would've done something sooner. Read full review

I very much liked the story. However I thought it dragged at times and could have been told in a much more reader-friendly and concise way. Read full review
