I found this book on sale at my local Christian Bookstore and since I love romance novels and sales, I jumped on it. I am a lover of Historical Fiction so this book was right up my alley.

Set in the late 1800s, the teen character Clara Carter (the heroine), lives in New York City and lives among the higher class of society.  Like most teen girls of any era, young men do capture her attention but she is also a deep and compassionate soul looking for more than a just a husband. She wants a life out of the ordinary.

The book while set over a hundred years ago doesn't get weighed down with language and references that most teen girls aren't interested in. Siri does a great job of focusing on the characters more than the time period. Her descriptions help create a clear picture of who, what and why. The novel came to life for me.
