This is a beautiful novel, romantic, erotic, exciting. I would recommend it to anyone- I love it. I've read it at least 5 times in as many years. The heroine is a lovely girl, strong but sensitive, wanting to break free but held back by conventions. The hero is fun loving but serious, dedicated and patient. I loved the ending- I thought the author took some serious risks with the grave scene- and I think it added so much to the book. Thank you, Ms. Beard!
