There is a reason that Jane Austen and the Bronte Sisters are authors whose works are read, re-read, and turned into movies: they create vivid worlds where likeable, headstrong characters live.

Then there is this book, by Christian author Lori Wick. It will probably not be read beyond her faithful readership, nor will it ever be optioned for a film starring Kate Winslet.

The setup is rather trite: redhead Cassandra reads books (often in foreign languages) to temporarily blind Alexander Tate, and the two eventually fall in love. The biggest problem I have with Wick's books is that while she has two main protagonists, she always writes entire scenes and often chapters with secondary and tertiary characters from other books in the series. This is distracting, and it prevents the reader from getting fully into the story. Her research on life in Victorian England is seriously wanting and, while I've enjoyed a few of her other works, this series is best left on the shelf.
