Blogcritics.orgMitchell's writing itself is a joy to read. True to period detail, even the thoughts of our heroine Susannah are rendered in a charming, long-ago cadence and rhythm. I'm certainly not an expert on 1640's dialogue but the turns of speech and trains of thought ring true and are consistent throughout....
Lovers of historical fiction should definitely add Love's Pursuit to their shortlist; it's unexpected depth, beauty, and quality of prose set it far above the crowd. I look forward to reading more of Mitchell's work in the future.
