This was a refreshing novel expertly done. You do not find perfect heroes here but what you do find is a book that will surprise and delight you. This book describes in great detail the development of a couple, without becoming boring. Ms. Justiss has written a wonderful novel that allows character flaws and still is a very charming read. I would recommend this to anyone.
