What a delightful book. Kate Owen knows well how to weave a story that captivates the reader's attention from the very start.
A narrative which we live through the main character, Julianna Delacroix, by being witness to a endearing story straddling two different time periods with a common denominator.
An ancestor's murder that paves the way to a family secret and an untold love tragically cut short.
The account is ably sprinkled with enrapturing details sure to elate your curiosity, luscious romance with a beat and a lesbian sex scene piquant to the right point (at least for me).
