    To my mind, much of historical fiction, in literature and TV, is merely contemporary drama in costume That is because a realistic representation of a time gone past takes extensive research it s hard work One thing I love about Jodi Daynard s novels is that you can be sure she has done her homework and that even very minor details can be trusted as truthful Add to that strong and well rounded characters and a plot full of surprises, and you have a compelling read Maybe if your taste runs to To my mind, much of historical fiction, in literature and TV, is merely contemporary drama in costume That is because a realistic representation of a time gone past takes extensive research it s hard work One thing I love about Jodi Daynard s novels is that you can be sure she has done her homework and that even very minor details can be trusted as truthful Add to that strong and well rounded characters and a plot full of surprises, and you have a compelling read Maybe if your taste runs to genre formulas where you pretty much know what is going to happen, and there s nothing wrong with that then this book might not be for you If you are up for a challenge then I am confident that you will not have read anything quite like this book By the way, I know that Lake Union markets primarily to women, and that is all well and good, but this is a book that would appeal to anyone who appreciates strong writing and great storytelling This book is not publicly available yet and my copy came directly from the author I am related to the author and surely biased Nevertheless, this review represents my honest opinion

    A journey of the heart takes us cross country and ends up nowhere I thought it would end At first I thought, Okay there are some interesting female characters But it becomes muchthan what you expect You literally don t know what s going to happen until the very end I m not normally a fan of this genre, but this was an exceptional read Men as well as women are going to love it.Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
