This is the first book I have read by Roseanna M. White. This is the first book in a series called “The Secrets of the Isles”. I could sense the intrigue from the very beginning of this book. However, I was originally afraid this book would read slow for me as some historical fiction books do, but it surprisedly did not. I did think some of the chapters were a little on the long side but since the plot was so good I did not let it bother me. One of the things I like about this book is that the secondary characters are just as well written as the main characters. They are so well written that you almost find yourself forgetting which two are the main characters of the story. Mabena Moon, the maid to Libby, was such a strong willed person and I thought she really balanced out Libby. I was glad that the author made them friends even though in the era this book took place that was an oddity. I also loved that Libby did not act like your typical lady from those days. Each character in this book brought so much to the story that I think that if even one was left out it would not have been the same. I cannot wait until the next book in this series.
