It isn’t often that I read a book that makes me laugh, makes me tear up, makes me fan myself, and makes me grin even as I turn the final page. This book did that and more.
With an ideal combination of tension and humor, steam and sweetness, I couldn’t put it down, and have, in fact, already read it twice at the time of this review.
Our heroine, Tommy, had so much passion, for her mission to end child labor, for her determination to gain acceptance by her natural father, and for life itself, that I couldn’t help but love her. Jonathan, too, tugged my heartstrings, with his tenuous relationship with his father, and his affection for Tommy as well as his own growing passion for her cause.
This is, without a doubt, one of the best historical romances I’ve read all year.
