Ions and a woman's fulfillment And in Mary Gideon discovered something he had never known even with the most dazzling ladies and captivating courtesans who freuented the lavish and licentious courts of Europe For what he had set aflame in Mary and what she returned to him a hundredfold was love. I enjoyed this book very much Since it takes place in the year of the great fire of London and the plague there is plenty of history tied up with a common enough love story developed into something uncommon with depth and believability

    This is one of my favorite books that I read at least every few years Interestingly this time I noticed period details that seemed to be missing That's probably because I have steeped myself up to my eyeballs in Restoration England Still I love this story
