What a fantastic book! The first couple of chapters were a little slow – Cora is a spoiled brat and her mother is overbearing but once Cora meets the Duke and begins to change as a person, I was hooked. I thought that the story was fascinating because of the honesty of the situation – despite being dukes and duchesses and rich people, they were faced with the same problems that each of us face – loneliness, overbearing families and refusal to face the truth of hard situations. The ending was the best part – Cora makes a very wise and mature decision and I was very satisfied with the entire book. I received this book as a part of the Goodreads First Reads.
