This is a great story. Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres. The writing of this story is clear and easy to read. Living in Crete for a few years myself, I can just imagine Tessa outside in the courtyard sitting by the fountain. Although this story is a rewrite from the author’s earlier title Seven Wonders, a new reader would have no difficulty with this story. I am now a bit curious about the Seven Wonders series that the author briefly mentioned in her final words.
There was just a little romance, but there was always an underlying feeling of suspense. I am not a romance reader and I would not classify this book as such, but there is just a hit of it in this story and it brought the story together. The storyline was entertaining, interesting, and was relatively easy to follow. In addition, I found it to be a fast read because I just had to know what was going to happen to Tessa.
I do recommend this book to friends, family, and anyone who struggles with hopelessness.Rating:
