One Word Review: Good

First Line: “Constance burst into the sunlight and began the last dash towards home from Dr. Poole’s: precisely where she wasn’t supposed to be.”

Synopsis: “The rules for a young English woman in 1799 are simple: Do what you’re told; stay out of the way; and don’t, under any circumstances, ask questions. But Constance Blackchurch is insatiable, headstrong,and complex; and the quest to find her missing mother is too much to resist…s is Alexandre Sans-Nom, the pearl diver who steals her heart, uproots all of her social expectations,and can either ruin or save the family she loves.”-GoodReads

Kathy’s Review: I’ve been reading this one off and on for about a week and finally sat down today to finish it. I did enjoy the story; it was original in some ways and predictable in others. Constance was a likable heroine, easy to relate to and I admired her spunk. I thought the story between her and her father was nice, how she was able to get to know him and see him in a different light. You can’t help but like Alexandre. He was a good leading man with all the right qualities. Constance and Alexandre had good chemistry together, although I would have liked to see them together more before they make any declarations. I guess that’s just how it goes though. The ending was a little bitter-sweet, but I’m happy with how everything works out. A good, entertaining read.
