    2. I am always a fan of history, and this book certainly met that need Whenever I pick up a Stephanie Sellers book, I know I will learn something historical, and it will be accurate How do I know She always lists the references she uses in the back of her books And the history she enlightens us about is not your normal, average, every day history It is often little known and incredibly interesting I have to say that I wish she would write a history book She makes the study of history entertaining a [...]

    4. I couldn t put it down I loved the relationships of the two main characters True lifetime friendship are hard to find To know someone will always be there for you no matter what is inspiring I enjoyed the way the author kept you wanting to know Very enteraining and riveting I experienced rage,love,pity and compassion.
