Synopsis from Goodreads:
Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.
McCaffrey’s writing has a natural flow that is easy to lose yourself in. As a reader, you are immediately pulled into the world that she creates. The author is a phenomenal storyteller who has the ability to mesh description with narrative with action. Each and every sentence progresses in an amazing way towards a thrilling conclusion. They symbolism in this novel is also phenomenal. It is subtle yet multi-faceted, adding an extra element of depth to the novel. McCaffrey can capture you in a love story that keeps you completely captivated without relying on explicit scenes. This story definitely holds its own without it. Now, don’t get me wrong, she can also write one hell of a sex scene that has you on the edge of your seat. They definitely add to the aura of the story, but are supplemental to the already solid and enthralling storyline.
I absolutely love the characters that McCaffrey creates for this story. Each and every one is uniquely developed to suit their purpose in the story. They are also developed in a manner that suits their time period. Although they may be slightly left of centre in some of their thoughts, overall they are not out of place for the society and culture in which they live. The family and work ethic that the characters in this story embody is also heart-warming and refreshing.
Overall this was a brilliant novel that I couldn’t put down. McCaffrey is quite quickly becoming one of my favourite authors.
