Do not read this book unless you want to be bored to tears for 500 pages and then deeply frustrateddissatisfied for the last 25 That is literally how this book is structured boring boring boooooring page after page of crawlingly slow moving plot trying to keep your eyes open long enough to give a shit about the characters and the scenes of each moment of each day of their lives and THEN at the end when there are a series of plot twists arranged in a clumsy fashion you just wish you hadn t bothered reading the whole book Not to mention the epilogue which just shows that years later the characters are all still unhappy and the unconvincingly villainous bad guy is still at large Not to mention how the love stories are totally dry neutered and unconvincing no sex scenes in this tome Honestly this was a real snoozer and I do NOT recommend it to anyone even readers such as myself who normally enjoy historical fiction
