Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A lovely story with a satisfying ending. I enjoyed the found family dynamic and found the children characters charming. The love story was sweet and compelling. I look forward to reading more by this author.
But it ended so abruptly. It was though the publisher called and said send it now. As someone else mentioned, an epilogue or another 50 pages or so would have been great. That said, this book is extremely well written and as far as I can tell, very evocative of the time period. Loved the characters and the plot and will certainly keep this author on my list. BTW, it is 4 stars instead of 5 because of the abrupt ending, otherwise an easy 5 stars. A sequel perhaps?😉
Great period piece showing the lengths a woman will go to survive. No matter the Country, history shows women treated as "less than"...often not even permitted to own property or benefit from the laws of men. I am always happy to find authors who highlight a a female rancher, a lord, a soldier who must don a disguise to follow a dream, express freedom and independence or...simply avoid abuse and stay alive. So many women, especially women who loved women DID take on a male persona even at the risk of being punished or killed. That takes strength and courage to a higher level. Thank you for a love story that shares this.
This book is well with the time it took to read it. The characters are great, the story is well written and informative. I happen to be a big fan of history so I really enjoyed it. I have no problem recommending this book and I will read more of Patricia Spencer's books.
I really enjoyed this book historical read with a lesbian hero. A women living as a man to help herself and other women is a hero in my book. Sweet romance added to the mix and very well written characters is a win in my book. Thanks for a very good read.
I really liked this historical romance. I'm not a big fan of historical romances when choosing a book to read. That being said, once I'm reading one, I do tend to enjoy it. This book is interesting and somewhat well written, but with errors, mainly missing commas. There was enough happening, but not too much angst. The angst is there, but in the background mostly. We don't see it firsthand and when it is revisited, it's still kept to a muted tone, or something. It's an easy read, and you won't get bogged down in stilted historical dialogue, etc. I liked how the women were strong, smart characters. They found a way to make it all work for them, in spite of their time period. And there's a heartwarming ending.
