This story unfolds slowly, but comes to a point in which you cannot put it down. You must find out what happens to Sophia. I will warn you about one thing: Susanna tends to info dump the history at times. If you are not a history buff, you might find these sections a tad boring, but I promise you it will pay off. I also found myself thrown out of the story a couple of times when she blended dialogue of two characters into one paragraph. It was a bit confusing, but nevertheless, the story is worth these odd moments. In all, I would give this book four out of five stars. It is a worthy read, and I have already purchased The Rose Garden, another book set in the same time period. I look forward to reading it.
