I purchased this download (not a sample) because several reviews of this title that were free versions contained typo's. After paying $3.99 and reading the first 123 pages I discovered that this is not the complete book. On my Nook it starts with Page 1, Chapter 1, but after checking the actual printed book I discovered that my download was actually starting with Chapter XXXII. Which explains the storyline problems! No where does it state that this is only a portion of the book in the overview. Total number of pages also are not mentioned anywhere. Customer Service told me there was nothing they could do. No refund. I will have to pay $10.99 now if I want a full version of the book and suggested I select a different version to download.

When I ordered this book I wasn't aware that this author was popular at about the same time as Jane Austin. I gather she was very popular then, but I found her writing style way too tedious and overly emotive for me to stick with. Way way overly descriptive of emotional content for my taste. I didn't finish reading the book.
