Bueno otra historia que no deja indiferente, me recuerda un poco a La Hija del Diablo, la chica renuente, el marinero arrogante y mujeriego que la acosa. Hace muchisimo que un libro no me atrapaba como este y eso que es parecidisimo a La Hija del Diablo, que no me encanto, es obvio que Jean Plaid...

I reached the middle of this novel, but I declare myself unable to finish it.One of the problems I've found with it is the little sympathy I feel for the characters. I can't stand them. All seem to be kids, inmature and not enough developed. The fact that two grown-up men can gamble their future ...

This historical fiction set in England during the French Revolution was not what I expected at all. I wanted a ghost story but instead I received an almost trashy sort of forbidden love triangle. The protagonist whined and ranted about her sin with the forbidden brother every time they met and ...

Good story, but it didn’t excite me. I needed something more special or different about the characters.Lucie was bland, passive, trusting, naive. Her friend said Lucie had a mind like a lawyer. But lawyers are smarter about analyzing things and people, not trusting as easily as Lucie did. Her...
