Read full description of the books:This was a quite surprising reading experience for me. This falls in a tiny subcategory of romance novels that I think are actually general fiction novels with a romance, verging on literary works.
The writing is splendid, the characters and their relationships (Richard Falk particularly - Sir Robert also, I thought) are extremely finely drawn. The sense of time and place is wonderful. As a book, I really, really enjoyed this. I was completely gripped by Richard Falk's struggles, and his storyline really read like a great novel, not a romance. Then there was the actual romance, which was so ephemeral I'd venture to say it doesn't really form a meaningful part of your reading experience. I also found the heroine's character, while skillfully done, kind of anemic next to other characters in the book. Falk and his friend Tom and Sir Robert are such complex, compassionate portraits of men, when men in romance novels tend to be convenient shirtless hunks with lots of cash, that Emily pales by comparison.
(Richard Falk is an all-time great hero! He's so grumpy because he's so sensitive! The silent, honorable, kind of unlikeable dignity! Swoon.)
