    Great! Love the strength in the heroins.

    I loved this book even though it broke my heart. The story was a nice deviation from the usual. I was very impressed. I have been a Beatrice Small fan for the last 13 years, my first being Rosamond. She was the one who introduced me to my first romance novel and is still very dear to my heart.

    The Silk Merchant's Daughters series by Bertrice Small

    So far I have read all the books in this series, I am in the middle of reading "Lucianna". If you have never read a historical romance book by Bertrice Small I highly recommend that you do so. All the female charters are strong of will,and or No namby-pamby females. Something I enjoy in books. So far in this series, I really like the daughters, but their mom is a character in her own write, and I am No fan of mom who Tries to bend her daughters to her will. I am pleased to write that each daughter in the series stands up to "ma ma",each with their good reasons! Ms Small has me cheering for all her good characters. Two notes I want to add, the first is Ms. Small writes some excellent sensual scenes in her books. (Which I really enjoyed. ;) ) Also if historical romances are not your favorite reads, you should try Bertrice Small's contemporary books. I think Ms. Small should be given an award for her heroines who make the best of their situations without giving a good fight first. I hope this review will encourage you to pick up and read a very Excellent book from one of the best writers out their.

    Another Winner!!

    Bertrice Small has done it again! She's written another winner in FRANCESCA. She's an unbelievable talent and I hope she continues writing for many years to come.
