I felt that the main characters were good people and the author encouraged me to like them all with their history, integrity and bravery.
There wasn't a great deal of historical fact which is a shame, but a good book nonetheless.
This is a nice and easy read, although one that I wouldn't say is that memorable, and I have read a better example of a similar story with a similar moral dilemma of having feelings for somebody you know you shouldn't.
I did enjoy the book though and particularly towards the end I started to race through it to find out what would happen (although I found the ending itself to be a bit abrupt).
The overall style of the packaging of the book probably gives off a feeling of it being a love story but it's more about how one young woman coped in a time of great conflict. I doubt I would rush to read more of this author's work, but I enjoyed this book for what it was.
