    Although well written, the book was depressing. Not enough romance or love, too much sadness. This is the first Virginia Henley book I've read and will be the last.

    It's a good read

    Virginia Henley usually delivers wonderful stories and steamy love scenes to the avid Romance reader. Undone, however, seemed less of a romance novel, and more of a character study of the book's heroine. Elizabth's journey from a young and timid girl to a self-assured woman was the crux of this story. The relationship between Elizabeth and her family was secondary. The importance of Elizabeth and John's relationship seemed to be a side plot. Sadly, I didn't truly believe in the love they shared or what it was based upon: Certainly not John's obsession with her incomparable beauty or Elizabeth's draw to his 'animal magnetism'! All that aside, Undone made for an enjoyable read, but left the reader wanting more depth, more passion, and more romance.

    Good read, but I have read better from V. Henley

    I have read more interesting stories from Virginia Henley. I couldn¿t seem to find the basis of the romance between Campbell and Elizabeth. Although they had some very romantic moments and some passionate love scenes I didn¿t feel like I really understood the hero. He came and went so sporadically I had a hard time understanding why they fell in love in the first place. The tragic story of her first husband was underdeveloped. I wanted to hate him but couldn¿t because I felt sorry for him. I would have liked to see John trounce the man at least once. The growth of Elizabeth was the saving grace of the book, she took some real strides toward adulthood, and her motherly instinct was touching and often a piece left out of historical romance.
