The romance in general feels beautifully articulated and restrained; like a Regency transplanted to the colonial era. Religion perfumes its characters lives instead of being used as a cudgel against the reader’s sensibilities, and they act within the bounds of their Christian beliefs in a sensible fashion. But religion provides the characters no easy answers in the story and they are not perfect automatons in dealing with the strife injected into their lives. Both Elisabeth and Noble are well-drawn characters, with deep regrets, virtues and flaws. Their romance develops carefully and slowly, and their eventual union is incredibly rewarding.
