My Review

My first dive into Erin Bomboy’s work and my first dive into Literary Romance. And honestly, the reason I picked this book up was the Younger-Man/Older-Woman Love Story. I’m getting older and this kind of love stories are my favorites at the moment.

I think this book was phenomenal.

I was in awe every second of my time inside these pages and I wished to have a print copy at some point because it was just that stunning. I don’t have many words to describe my feelings because it left me speachless in more ways than one.

This book touches into so much that my brain is still reeling with the magnitude of it all.

Not only the writing was remarkable but also the overall plot was set in a time period that gave the author the background to talk about some very hard pressing issues from back then. In our day and age, these issues are still present and this story does a great job a pointing out some very hard truths about them.

There is no way I would hold back in recommending this book to all the people I know. I think it can satisfy any reader that has a love for wonderful writing and a deep hard look at reality, even if the book is set in another time.
