This book held my interest from the first page to the last. The author does a good job of telling mingling the past with the present without dropping the thread of the story. Probably one of my favorites by Luanne Rice. Carol 10/28/07
This book by Ms Rice was my first and won't be my last. I loved how it was easy to follow, the story kept you glued to it and you felt like the characters were personal friends. It has intrigue, romance and just good quality. I highly recommend it.
