Hothouse Flower - A good read..., 12 April 2011
Bought this book last week and read it over the weekend.
Suffice to say, I enjoyed it immensely. I felt the time-switching (which others have noted as being a little distracting) worked well, and put me in mind of "Waterland", where Jeremy Irons takes his class through his own childhood. I don't want to spoil the book for anyone, but I thought the ending was highly appropriate given what had come before.
Overall, I would say to anyone interested in historical romantic fiction to give this a go. It may be a little slow-paced for some, but bear with it. It is certainly a worthwhile read.
