Another oldie but goodie from Shirlee Busbee I read this book years ago Definitely need to do a re read some time soon There is forced seduction in this book which fit the times I love the ending when all is revealed but I wanted a little bit of that scene The reader has to wait until almost the very last page for the big secret to get revealed A little frustrating but overall doesn t take away from the enjoyment in the book
