Did the plot pull you in or did you feel you had to force yourself to read the book? Not for a single moment. From the description, I was expecting a love story but this book starts out with gentle tones and then becomes suspense filled story that will leave any reader at the edge of his or her seat.
How realistic was the characterization? The feeling of being caught in a relationship you are not happy with is a common feeling. The sense of being trapped and seeking a way out is something many people can relate to. The author plays on these emotions to build his story and readers will not be disappointed.
Did you feel you were experiencing the time and place in which the book was set? I wasn't expecting to be pulled into a time period I have never experienced. The author has done his research on what the settings of the time period he uses and this makes it realistic for the reader as if you are there experiencing the moment with the characters.
