3 Stars -- 12/30/2012 Full Review coming soonI really liked this story. It started out a bit slowly but then proceeded nicely. I liked the characters and the authors voice enough to anticipate the next in this series. I don't read many independent authored historical novels. Rather like karaoke ... some things should be left to the professionals. However, after this one, will not be so hesitant in the future. An enjoyable historical read by an Indie author.
