This book is a nice novel that takes the reader back on old times It is a story of young people that lived in 1850s but feel and think and maybe act like nowadays young people.To be read, definitely o I love this book she really shows us that rich and poor people have the same problems and that you aren t happy jut because you are rich also that your money status doesn t affect who you fall in love witb DNF Definitely set up for a complex, intriguing plotline, but the style didn t work for me as a reader, and I didn t particularly like or even sympathize with the characters.
