A sweeping tale of passion and drama, readers will love this amazing story.
This was a book where I felt sad to see it end. I LOVED it. Michal came to “life” for me and my emotions rose and fell with hers.
Grateful for the opportunity to see Michal as a real woman not just a foolish wife. I was humbled by the fact that I probably would have done the same or worse. It is a beautifully written story!
My husband and I took turns reading this wonderful story to each other before going to sleep each night. It is very well written and moving and it was hard to put it down. I'd highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more by this author.
