The Elders rule this harsh new world and according to their rules to own land you must have a wife which is why Hudson Land, complete with his entire life savings finds himself in town to purchase a wife the problem is he's missed the auction and it's now the beheadings which is where he surprisingly finds his wife to be.
Lake is a rebel and that's something which the Elders won't tolerate which is why she finds herself sentenced to death. Lake had resigned herself to dying and so she has mixed emotions about being bought by Hudson, initially we're not sure about Lake but as the book progresses we discover her past and her motivations.
Now Hudson I just loved he's a fabulous character, Lake is intriguing although at times, early on she annoyed me especially when she was being selfish but as the book progresses we see her grow .
This is a short read at only 94 pages but in those pages we're given a whole new world and a good idea of what life was like, we also get the POV of the two main characters which I like.
This is the first book I've read by this author and I only found it because my friend read it although she was unhappy with the ending and is, I quote "calming down" before she starts the second one, I've already downloaded 'To Keep a Wife' and I'll be starting it as soon as I finish this review.
The book is one of a series set in the same world. Unlike many other such series, this one has been written with care by the author who wants readers to be able to read each as a free-standing and complete story. This approach works well here. I haven’t read any other books in the series but I feel neither ignorant about the society and world, nor cheated out of a complete story. There’s a beginning, middle and end here. I wish more authors would treat their readers with the same respect. As a result of this experience, I’m far more likely to read other books by this author.
Character development, a crucial element for my enjoyment as a reader, is handled very well; we experience along with the players, and we care what happens to them. Incident is equally well conveyed, so that the reader is involved in the action throughout. And settings are given enough detail to paint pictures of place and environment. All this within the pages of a novella. That’s quite an achievement.
This is a good read and, although it’s placed in the romantic genre, it will appeal to readers of both genders. There’s a general idea that men don’t read romance, but when it’s written as well as this and set in a society with as much injustice and internal conflict as this, the story can and does exceed the narrow definitions of the genre. Fully recommended.
