This book is one of my all-time favorite books. I am one of those readers that mainly reads just certain authors, such as Julie Garwood, but after having read all I could find that interested me, I went to my local library. The cover of this book caught my eye, even though I had never heard of the author. The summary of this book seemed interesting enough (taking place in Ireland on the verge of war, 1792), and as I started reading, I found myself completely intigued in the characters of Christopher and Lark. The secondary characters are great as well! Especially Grindle! :-)
This book moves quickly and interesting, and there are very few parts, if any, that drag along. I have to say that I love the fact that Lark is blind, b/c her true feelings are explored (and the author does this BEAUTIFULLY). She knows she shouldn't rely on her "enemy" (Christopher), but there is something about him and his compassion towards her and her younger brother Jamie that keeps her in her house as his patient.
I could go on and on, all day about this book. Everybody has a favorite book, and this one is mine! This is the only Deborah Satinwood book I have read, and I would love to read more! I have yet to find any so I have settled to reading this one, now going on the fourth time.
