I cannot even begin to express how depressed I feel after reading this book. Sure, it’s supposed to be a romance. It’s supposed to be set in the romantic Regency period. BUT wow that was a depressing read. Of course, the book promises that things will get better even before you open the cover. Unfortunately, you’ll find yourself waiting a VERY long time to encounter such promises.
No, I would not recommend, seeing that I feel more depressed than I have in a while, even after finishing the book. Though, I would give the book a 4-star rating due to the ability to bring out such emotions in me as well as great writing and relatable characters.
