If you love good historical romance, you will love this book! This is a great book, Carola Dunn is very knowledgable about the fashions, social graces, and manners of the eara. The story is good, and the characters are warm and unique, they aren't the cookie-cutter characters typical of so many historical books. I have read many historical love stories, and this is one of the best I have found. Dunn has a strong writing style which I really enjoy. Her writting reminds me alot of Jane Austin (Sense and Sensibility, Emma), very enjoyable and good-quality. If you like Austin's writtings, you will like Dunn. I have just finished reading "My Lord Winter" for the second time, and it was even more enjoyable this time around. This is one of my favorite books!
