Jude married Claude White, who she later divorced in You can ask almost anyone who saw me at RT how I got all bubbly and stupid giddy whenever I talked about meeting her. When Judw imagined writing this review, I thought I would comb through the book and find highlighted bits and talk about it eloquently as a work of art, as an influential piece of fiction, as the ideal romance novel.

It is astonishing to me deverraux there were actually 16 other books pre-dating this one in this series! He had humor, curiosity and belief in the almost impossible truth.

While I can clearly see why the book appeals to so many readers, it left me completely numb. Past to present time travel. Highly recommended for lovers of historical romance! How absurd to think she would ever harm a child! A day and age in which many women were not as adventurous a we are in today’s world.

I first read this book in the 80’s and it became my most favorite book. Not to give anything away, but the one thing I didn’t dislike was the device the author armr at the end – a different take on what others have referred to as “HEA” happily ever after.
