An excellent story

I thoroughly enjoyed following Gwen on her adventure and felt rather proud of myself for catching the clues about the central plot. The fact that the story is based on real events only added to my enjoyment. ( )

For a book that's set in the 1100's, I found the language/vocabulary to be too modern. Ex: "bargaining chip" is used at the end of chapter twenty. The hard-to-pronounce names bother me. For crying out loud, I just want to be able to understand the names so I can eliminate all confusion. Gareth and Gwen get along well, but they do not strike me as a normal couple in love. They're fairly smart people with some respect for each other's knowledge and skills. But the plot really isn't getting my full attention and I find myself wondering: how soon do I reach the end of this book? That's sad, isn't it?

But I forced myself to finish it! And I still can't force myself to like the book. Would I pick up another novel by Sarah Woodbury? Nope. No way. Not in this lifetime. I am deleting this book off my tablet and moving on. ( )

Meh. There was a lot to like about this book -- interesting setting, good plot, believable and/or sympathetic characters and relationships, but somehow it never quite came alive for me. There was description, but it never brought the scenes fully to life. The dialog was OK but often a little too flat and on the nose. It's too bad, because the bones of the book were pretty good. ( )
