Customer Review

on 2 March 2014
Again Shirl Henke proves she can cleverly weave passion and an amazing plot. I gave this book five stars because of that. There was only one very small niggle and something I have not found in all the other books of hers I have read. It was an issue of credibility. At the beginning when Miriam falls under the incredibly handsome Rigo's spell I could not believe that a well educated woman who had qualified as a doctor in the 16th century - which was quite an exceptional thing for the time - could have had unprotected sex twice and done absolutely nothing about it. She knew the consequences, made worse by the fact she was a Jewess and he a Christian. To end up pregnant and forced into marriage with him seemed to hold an element of her deliberate entrapment of him. Granted there was this burning passion between them, but she was no green girl. This then sadly coloured her character for me all through the book which is sad as I have loved all Shirl's other female leads. It was well balanced though by Benjamin and Rani's romance, which I absolutely loved plus of course, the story itself which as usual was brilliant!
