    The historical side of it was extremely interesting I love the detail, and interweaving the economy, social standards, and small town lifestyles of the time period, as well as mixing in facts of known historical figures of the time Very interesting storyline This is why I did not rate this as 2 stars.Some of the writing needed help Telling not showing in certain places, a few head hopping, and unrealistic dialogue even for the time period , all of which are no no s in fiction.But it s still wort [...]

    I was expecting historical fiction not two people lusting after each other There are historical aspects to it, but there was a lot of sexual scenes I know it was down in the late 1800s but I don t think it was done like in today s society It would have been better if that romance was suttle not the main attraction of the story.
