This story grabbed me from the first chapter and kept me up too late that night and the next day I couldn't wait to jump right back into Jocelyn's life. Absolutely riveting and at no point was it even the least bit boring! I'm not much into the whole Civil War era or Colonial Williamsburg but the author didn't cram any of this down your throat but made it interesting and exciting even. The characters were believable and real and people you would actually like to know.

I instantly loved Luke and disliked Ramsey and his "your mine" attitude (he was overly familiar with Jocelyn and acting as if she was his destiny). I found his demeanor creepy and almost stalkerish. On the other hand Jocelyn had an instant friendship with Luke and camaraderie with his family but was distant and stifled with Ramsey's family. To me that said it all! I saw the ending coming a mile away or should I say 200 pages in but it certainly didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story and the many revelations that were a surprise. I totally loved this book and will be reading Days of Gold in the coming months.
