What an enjoyable book! Soon after starting to read it, I found myself completely transported to the 1600s.The characters and setting are well-developed, and the author did a fantastic job with a variety of dialects. Maggie Williams Richmond does a brilliant job depicting 1600 England. The story is loosely based on her ancestor, Geillis Balfour, and the Balfour family. This well-written story illustrates how conflicts over race, religion, and politics existed in the past but could be overcome with kindness, the importance of family, and how deception leads to heartbreak.
