    1. I struggled with how to rate and review this book for a while. I wanted to be completely honest, but I also needed objectivity in the area of morality. It was a difficult balance, but I believe I can give this a five-star rating. Although there is a definite moral dilemma, I can give this a five-star rating with no qualms whatsoever.Historical fiction/romance is often quite predictable, and I have to admit that I figured this story would follow suit. This book is anything but predictable. While [...]

    2. This book is definitely more historical mystery than it is romance, although there is a romantic element to it. And Mr. Wasley captures the historical element of it perfectly. The hero and heroine are apart for much of the book--as war tends to do to people. And, I was frustrated for them because they were often so close to each other as Fiona was searching for Jeptha, but they always managed to just miss each other. The battles are well written--be aware, they are battle scenes and are very gra [...]

    3. Real people have relationships with other people. Ric Wasley understands this, which is why his three-dimensional characters have realistic motivations, regrets, and desires. Fiona has the grit, fire and Irish love of the land that motivated Scarlet in Gone With the Wind. Her husband, Jeptha, is strong, brave and intelligent, but with a much more linear moral character than Rhett. He also decides much more quickly if equally reluctantly to forfeit his life, if necessary, to support his belief in [...]

    4. I didn't really enjoy this book. The plot twisted and turned, but for me, it depended too much on bizarre coincidences to make sense. Some of the writing was excellent, but other parts were too cliché for me. The good guys and gals were super good, and the bad guys were pure evil. The setting was detailed and well described, but that wasn't enough to overcome what I saw as weaknesses in the storytelling. I think a good editor would have made the book much better.
