This is such a great read, loved it from beginning to end, and wanted to continue after the last page is turned.
author has gifted us with a story that is full of intrigue with a bit
of sweet romance thrown in. Sadly, we meet greed head on, with people
that have no love of anyone, including their country, and they never
have enough money or power.
Sweet Rose finds a true friend in
Tilly, and in the end this friend actually saves her life, and provides a
way to an escape to a possible new life.
I loved spending time
in Scotland, and with Biard family whom make Tilly one of their own, and
don't forget the sweet little dog. Can just see those boys joy as they
play with Winston!
Stay tuned Winston places a crucial part near the end. After the book ends be sure to read the insightful author's notes!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
