Susannah left her parents to cling to her husband and a sudden death of both of her parents and a husband who isn't living up to the marriage vows plunge her into a place that she doesn't find the hope. A woman in 1835 doesn't have many options and through an interesting avenue is able to find a way out of her situation, but will her past come and get her. . .

Without this book set in 1835, the women's issues would be different, so the time was vital but also so very interesting. I loved that even though it was set in a different time it was still easy to read, the author didn't make the language to out of it; although the setting and the dress of the time were described in perfect detail! I can not say enough good things about how the time in history was set up so well, I got lost completely in it!
