    Annoying punctuation

    The story is actually fairly engaging! I like that the intimate scenes are not full of details! The amount of exclamation points used however, were very annoying! It interrupted the story flow for me! I found the overuse very distracting! And yes, I overused them in my review to make a point of how much they were overused!

    could have been a great book

    In about 250 pages...instead the story was drawn out to 538 with other stories going on and losing the main focus of Quentin & Faith. Was very disappointed and had to glaze over chapters that just seemed to be filler to make the story longer. Had it only been Q&F, the story would have been amazing...

    Ok read

    I couldnt really get into the book and skimmed over some of it. Too much was going on and it was mostly told then actual character interaction. Still a good read overall but not something i would read again.

    Not Worth The Money

    I'm very sorry I spent money on this book. The writer spends so much time describing every little thing that your left with no feeling of the characters. I won't buy a book from this writer again. 280 some pages of descriptions is not writing.

    O.K.

    The story line was very good, however the telling of the story was lacking. It read more like a research paper then a novel.

    Hard to decide

    It has a good plot/storylne, but this author needs some guidance in writing. The punctuation was over used....the exclamation points were nervewracking!!!!!!
    It was just so hard to read, i felt like the way it was written it should have been for someone who limited comprehension skills.

    The author uses an overabundance of unnecessary exclamation poin

    The author uses an overabundance of unnecessary exclamation points. She refers to the main character's father as a clockmaker but states on the second page of the book that he repaired clocks and had no interest in making them. His income allowed the family to live well, but yet there was no money left when he died, meaning his daughter was forced to walk a long distance to seek shelter with relatives. All this happened on the first two pages of the book. There may be no way I can finish reading this abortion due to the author's dreadful imagination. This is a perfect example of the term "flight of fancy".

    Great read

    A nice romance with an ending that makes the story complete. Sexual content is mild.

    ...

    I agree with the other reviews. It would have been a much better story had the author concentrated on Faith and Quentin and the children. The book quickly lost my interest when their story was put into the background.
