How important is social standing and ambition? This historical novel explores how our own expectations define our options and choices.
Hunter offers a good story. This historical novel showcases the limbing up the soclal ladder, restricting access to other people, and wanting to keep her high status, young Lady Hawthorne moves through society as an up-and-coming noble.
The tale helped me think about my own ideas of what is important. Am I behaving in certain ways to impress others? Or am I willing to be true to God's call for me, regardless of what others expect of me?
Easy to read and good fun on a lazy summer evening.
