[Trying to do this without spoilers]
Samyann handles both setting description and character development beautifully as well as presenting historical events accurately. The reader IS where the story happens.
The romance between Amanda and Mark is handled tastefully and the internal issues of both characters adds greatly to the reader’s enjoyment and doubt as to whether they will overcome the obstacles this age has put between them. The two main supporting cast members are delightful and compliment the main characters very well.
For me the ending felt just a tad rushed but it still proved a great ending for the story.
Overall an enjoyable read.
