I liked Callista's dispatches back to her newspaper although it was stretching my imagination a bit that her alter-ego, R.C. Warwic, could have such a well-known reputation to carry to people in the West. People tend to remember the story or the scandal, not the byline.
However, the story was romantic and took place in another time. That's what I bought it for, to be transported on a romantic adventure. I was handsomely rewarded.
I found myself thinking about the characters and their situation while I was at work----I was anxious to get back to the book.
The hero and heroine are such believable, good people. They are funny and real and you feel as if you know them or, at least, that you would like to know them.
Their love story is not without adventure and/or "problems" like being captured by Geronimo. However, they take it in stride and react to situations like adults. You don't find yourself wondering how he/she could be so stupid.
This is a book the reader can become immersed in--you feel as if you are part of the story. The author includes many historical milestones and facts so that you are learning some history very painlessly (i.e. Mary Renault).
I highly reccomend this book. I enjoyed it and kept it to read again (instead of putting it in the bag for the used book store.)
