i really liked this one had my hooked from the start a nice read recommended
Charlotte wants to escape the abuse from her father after he catches her give a kiss to a young man. She becomes a wife to a man she barely knows in order to give his children a mother when he moves his family to America. Will this marriage work between two strangers? I enjoyed this sweet story.
I have a very hard time with this one. I am giving 3 stars only for one reason. The foundation of the story is good. Now for the review. Within the writing there is some confusion at times like the writer forgets where they are in their writing or perhaps they get ahead of themselves. The language is not period correct. Now having said this.... the foundation of the story is good and it is a read you do not have to pay so much attention to. You may enjoy it as a travel read or by the beach read. I was given this book in return for an honest review. Anna Swedenmom
I agreed to give an honest review in exchange for this ARC and so I will. I found the story a bit lacklustre. I give credit to all the authors out there who put their heart and souls into their writing and so hate when I have to give a less than glowing, albeit honest, review.
