The story was moving, with characters you could love. Good historical fiction, very few editing issues. But... Actually would be a five star novel except it tended to race through scenes, several moments were unrealistic, and the ending was way too superficial and rushed. With so many chapters of really good story, I was disappointed with the closing. All in all, it was a decent read.
