This story has spirit, humor, and verve, and lessons to be learned. It has the sweetness of a first romance, and the rollercoaster of emotions when faced with staying true to yourself or to the mold someone else is trying to put you into, even when it’s well-meaning, and maybe, just maybe, being brave enough to be yourself anyway.
This book is classified as a romance, and it was the focus on love in the book, and how fleeting time can render it, how it shouldn't be squandered or put off....that was particularly romantic I thought.
This book actually reminded me a little bit of To Kill a Mockingbird – the writing, the Southern setting, the pacing, the court case, the prejudice, but particularly the court case.
Divided loyalties and deadly secrets are taking their toll on the daughter of the house where enemy soldiers are housed. But as her prejudice disappears and she falls for the enemy, their love story ends tragically, or does it?
