Lady Kiera Darby is a eroine with an intriguin storylin.
he setting ( rambling family manse in Scotland) is interesting for the time period.
No London high society etting, very different.
For ll that the setting is the 1830 's, he time period is not anything that you are steeped in, no immersion.
I might not overlook the heroines propensity of hugging herself, Kiera is always " wrapping her arms about herself ", her tendency to melodramatics, the manufactured " obstacle " that she and Gage must overcome.Their developing " relationship " for lack of a better word, is rying to be intriguin and on the shockin side, two lovers held apart by circumstance.
There is little subtlety to the protagonist, again their feelings wil be explained step by step by Kiera 's analyzing of their words and facial expressions.
