Rating- *** 3 stars

My thoughts:

While historical fiction for me can be a hit or miss, this book was in a more favorable light.

Liliana has got a talent that both stimulates and educates the reader all the while drawing a picture of how great history can be tweaked to fit the imagination.

I loved the way she took a period before our time and worked it into a very lovely story, transporting the reader as if they were actually there. I felt like I was watching the scenes front and center, following the characters as they progressed through the story. It wasn’t one of those stories that is so convoluted with history that it gave you a headache. I felt like it flowed beautifully and I could grasp onto each piece.

While I don’t want to include spoilers I will tell you this: Liliana has done a very great job on this book and I do look forward to other works from her.
