I would say this book is an enjoyable book for the most part. I feel, though, that the use of the passion filled moments and details during those passionate scenes was a bit too much.
Julia London’s historical detail, however, was truly great. Describing the clothing and the houses of the 1800’s was amazing.
I would recommend this book to those who like historical, passion filled stories, but if you don’t like books with detailed passion and language then this book is not for you.
All in all, Ms. London deserves praises for a wonderful writing talent!
