Other readers have compared Miller's writing to Jane Austen, and I think that's probably a good description. The characters are very well developed.
It was a slow read for me, yet charming, sweet and full of raw emotions. It's the story of characters finding true love, aside from family and societal expectations. It's the story of forgiveness and acceptance. It's the story of true and deep beauty in contrast to harsh and selfish hearts. It's the story of humility and learning to serve people in the depths of despair. One of these themes is sure to challenge each person that reads this book.
Though her writing is very good, it's not a book I can recommend to everyone. It's clean and appropriate, but it's a book that takes dedication to read. It's not long, but it took me two weeks to read it - I wasn't sucked into the story like many of the authors I love. But for someone that likes classic literature, this will be an enjoyable book.
I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
