I was bored with this book before I finished it. But I did finish-- I sometimes quit reading a book if its really bad.

A beautiful tale of the antebellum South for readers who love and enjoy big books. Love the cover. Beautiful illustration in words and picture.

This book is hard to read but I'm still at it. It arrived on time and in great shape too

I agree with the previous (and only) customer review. Maybe the culture in the antebellum South was so totally different from today that the modern mind just doesn't get it, but I thought many of the conversations, expressed sentiments, and actions were just plain odd. I think part of the problem is that none of the characters were developed enough that they made any sense.
Worse still is that the main character, Elizabeth, is pretty hard to like, as are most of the others. I kept hoping throughout this book and the sequel, The Stars of the South, that she would redeem herself in some way; many times she almost did, but she never quite made it. As for the others, I found most of them very tiresome.
Especially disappointing was that the most interesting character was killed in a duel. He was the best part of the story.

What a terrible book - I kept with it, praying that it would get better, and it was just a frustrating slog. Elizabeth is just a spoiled little idiot, and there's no point to any of the suffering that takes place because of her selfishness. Don't waste your time.
