Kathleen Tighe Ball's insight:

It has been a long time since I have read a classic romance novel as I normally stick to Christian novels. I enjoyed this book immensely and did find that Annie and Burke both breathed sincere prayers a few times. Annie was adamant about remaining a virgin until marriage. Warning: they are newlyweds who are extremely attracted to each other and there are a few steamy love scenes between Annie and Burke after they are married.
