  2. I just finished this book today and came here to express how much I loved it But I must confess I m a little puzzled by all the negative lackluster reviews I m glad I didn t read them before I bought and read the story Wrought with impossible choices, sacrifice, and passionate love, the relationship between Kit and Anna was breathtaking and exciting Set that against the unforgiving backdrop of a volatile Afghanistan, and you have an epic historical romance with as much relevance today as it had [...]


  3. Not your normal historical romance It s not set in glitzy upper class Regency England but in harsh Afghanistan In the beginning I wasn t sure but when I found out that most of the things that happens are historically correct, I liked it better When Annabell Spence was little he family was killed and she was taken She was given as a gift to Akbar Kahn, the greatest war lord in Afghanistan.Years later when Christopher Ralston meets her she is Ayesha the favourite in Akbar Khans harem.It is a dark [...]


  4. I would not recommend this book to anyone who has a loved one fighting in Afghanistan The story of the British in that country in the 19th century seemed so plausible that I wasn t surprised to find out that it followed actual historic events closely And most of the characters in this brutal tale are based on real people although the couple at the center of the plot are fictional I found myself disgusted at and frustrated by the arrogant stupidity of the British military as portrayed by Feather [...]


  5. okay the only reason I read this was because it came in a paper bag full of books I got from the library for a 1 Sounded interesting so I started UGHI had a really hard time getting into this The hero was constantly b tching at the heroine, like it was her fault that s how she was I was bored 50 pages in but persevered At 200 I was barely staying interested and was annoyed by the main characters i ended up skimming alot of passages because it just dragged Ultimately it was okay Would I read it a [...]


  6. Not your usual historic romance Loved the desert setting of Afghanistan Many interesting twists with the exotic cultural norms of these desert people thrown in The heroine is also a unique charactI loved her strength, intelligence, and boldness even if she wasn t your average aristocratic young miss from England Definitely a fine told story and worth reading


  7. I love this author so much Every her book is different, thrilling and interesting Buy this one I find the worst of all of hers I ve ever read So unrealistic, and I didn t understand the protagonists at all Their feelings appeared from nowhere in some strange and unknown moment Wouldn t recommend it There are so many really fantastic Feather s books


  8. Very descriptive, yet the author uses a lot of words that the average reader will not know There were even a few I had never come across before and I consider myself knowledgeable It was a tedious read I did learn a lot of Afghani customs and views though.


  9. Fascinating that it actually has an accurate historical background during the British occupation of Afghanistan Except for the main character, of course No way would her owner have waited until she was 15, or let her read
