I stayed mad throughout the book to have to read how Elizabeth was treated and stayed in the marriage those first five years while Jack was in Canada and practically welcomed him home with open arms and stayed in the marriage!!!!! I hate to read of a weak heroine!!!! She could have found employment Jack said he gave his word to his dying friend but left to dishonor his own Word by fornicating with other women after marriage and even keeping mistresses thinking Elizabeth would never know!! Elizabeth should have left after she found out and after his Mother passed. Even finding he swore there were no others which was another lie, how could she trust him????? I hated how this book made me feel, so mad for Elizabeth, I can not tolerate infidelity!!!!! Their love was based on a lie!!!!
