The first 900 pages was about the history of France. With too much details of insignificant material regarding riots, executions and escape plots. Doesn't really express much details on the main characters. After the first 900 pages the English Heiress finally gets to England just to be betrayed emotionally by her savior. She forgives him the end.... Completely disappointing I would not be reading any more books from this author.

    Highly Recommended--Unless you don't like involved stories

    There is a review about this book which says that all it talks about for 900 pages is the French Revolution. Not So. This book is set during the Revolution and uses the atmosphere and some actual events of it, as it should since that is the setting and it is a historical. I never like books that are set in a particular setting and then don't use that setting to make them different from every other time period.

    I am glad I now have this on my Nook. The only problem I have with this copy is that the table of contents are useless. There are no chapters listed.

    Too much information. This could have been a really great story and it was for like the first 150 pages. The next 850 pages could have been condensed to about 300. I love historical fiction, but this went quickly from story to history book. The main characters fizzled out, too bad. Obviously a lot of research went into this book so, if you like detail you'll like this one.
