was so excited to see little Oliver had his own story. After all the poor child endured he was going to live and have a happy ending. I hate to say anything other then raving reviews for Susan Wiggs, but this book just didn't grab me like Circle in the Water did. It was sooo slowww, I must have set it down a hundred times before I was able to make it to the end. When the gypsies showed up I became hopeful but they didn't stick around long enough to bring some of the jubilant happiness they had shared with us in CITW. At then end of the story a baby girl is born to Oliver and Lark, they name her Philippa and this is when I find out there is a third book Dancing On Air that Thank Goodness I have in my TBR pile. But, what had me so excited about Oliver's story is I was introduced to him in lengthy detail in CITW and finding out there is another story about this baby just doesn't excite me, I don't have that link with the baby. It would have been nice to have some of her childhood in this book so I would have been more compelled to see how she turns out in Dancing On Air.
A reckless man...an innocent woman...witty, wicked, and wonderful.
Wonderful middle book in the trilogy beginning with Circle in the Water and following with Dancing in the Air. I actually like Wiggs' historical romances better than her recent lightweight contemporaries.
