My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Long's Pennyroyal Green series has been building to this book from the very beginning. We were introduced to the Eversea and Redmond families, and told there was enmity between them going back centuries, but we never had the full story of the twisted tale of Lyon Redmond and Olivia Eversea until now.
Ms. Long's writing is wonderfully lyrical, and her characters are beautifully drawn--even the secondary characters come to life.
I found the epilogue at the end unnecessary, and frankly, somewhat distracting. However, the novel is a must-read for fans of Pennyroyal Green, and while I would encourage new readers to start at the beginning, it's good enough to stand on its own.
