This was another one of those books I couldn't put down. It's the kind of fantasy/adventure that I love to read. I really wanted to give this book four stars, but when I got to the end and she still wouldn't marry him I knew I would only be giving it three. I suppose it was what I felt the author was saying about marriage that bothered me. It was completely opposite of the way I see it and feel about it. I understand why the main character felt the way she did, due to her life experiences, but I felt like she could have grown beyond that.
