The good: -The writing was excellent, emotional and moving; the characters fully developed and even though I had trouble forgiving Jonathan in the beginning, I came to deeply sympathize with him, the more truths about the past incident came to light.

Langley came to her rescue. He gave her a gentle smile. It looked like you two were headed toward the punch bowl. Lady Montgomery squeezed her wrist. I was just thinking about taking some air myself. International Editions.
