As I said before though this book is a sigh of relief because the author was just able to stick with the story and not get off track writing about a romance that has nothing to do with the book. Of course there is some attraction between characters, but it stops at that... because... what a concept, RESPECT and MORALITY:)
This book is set during the American Revolution when that was a big deal. It was a time when a girl and a guy weren't alone together, but with a chaperon. That's part of the history and this author kept that where even in historical fiction books authors are straying from that!
Also for those who agree and are having trouble finding descent books, I have created a list that I continue to add to as I find more decent/"clean" books. To view my list either search public lists for: Books I recommend to everyone, or go to this link:
