Another Good Read
One can't help but to love the Windham family and the resulting series. You actually feel their love as if they were real. This book follows the same template of those prior in the series and as it seems in several books, one character has physical ailments. I was a bit annoyed at that but still very much enjoyed the book.
After reading three terrific novels by this author (The Heir, The Soldier, The Virtuoso), this book was a profound waste of time.
The first novels had fully developed characters and were unique in their blend of male and female perspectives. Although this novel is set in the same era and about the same family, the author lacks the ability to generate any interest in the characters.
Perhaps it is because she is unable to generate any real conflict or depth from the woman's point of view. Indeed, the only highlights are when the story revisits the earlier characters.
In short: no depth, no character development, no conflict, and a waste of money. Did someone else write this?
