Viviane Elisabeth Borg transports her readers to exotic locals and historical places with this sweeping story. I loved how detailed the history was in this story and yet it was so personalized that it was in no way like reading a boring text book. The experiences of the characters draws the reader into the story and makes you feel as invested as they are. Both Serena and Louisa are strong females and the fact that they are so different and yet in so many ways alike was fascinating, making their interactions all the more interesting to witness. I enjoyed the beautiful descriptions of Malta and because of this story it now has a spot on my Bucket List..
