I am not really a romantic fiction kind of woman; I'm more of a mystery/classics/non-fiction kind of woman. And the genre title "Christian Romantic Fiction" usually sends me running in the opposite direction.
This book, however, hooked me. It was well-researched and well-written and packed with charming details. It was a lovely diversion, and a perfect antidote to the hustle of the holiday season.
Don't skip the open letter at the end of this book -- it, like this book, is well worth your time.
