Once again this series picked me up and placed me in Europe and I felt like I was on my own grand tour. The novel takes up right where the previous one left off. There are a few new characters, but most of them are old friends. Cora is still my favorite character. She knows her own mind and isn’t afraid to say what she thinks. Will is a favorite too, though there were times I wished he had a bit more backbone. However, he is a man of his times and that is a credit to Ms. Bergren. The descriptions of the places are wonderful, the mystery is sufficiently interesting so that you want to know what happens next and the romance was done really well. There is a bit of a conclusion here that had me rejoicing and I’m glad it didn’t drag on until book 3. There is less tension in this novel between the travelers (though there is some!)and I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss it. Spiritually, I love how Cora seeks God’s face as to what to do and doesn’t fall into silliness. I love the emphasis on having a relationship with Christ. This book is a sold continuation of the series and I look forward to see what happens next in book three.
**I received this novel from Netgalley. My opinion was not affected in any way.**
