Reading the other reviews, I was wondering if we were talking about the same book...
I read a lot of historical fiction, but I gave up on this after about 20 pages. The introduction was slow and uninvolving, the characters very hard to care about, the 'love talk' between the characters slightly sick-making, but most of all, the language was just dreadful. A horribly flowery style, an uneasy mix of period and contemporary.
