Dorothy Garlock weaves an epic tale...with characters that take on life . This is a must read for historical fans. Out-standing!

One of the best books I have ever read up until now. I would recommend this as a really fine piece of writing that anyone who likes historical novels and a little romance mixed with it would enjoy.
