** spoiler alert ** I received this book from Goodreads First reads giveaway. I liked this book because it is historical fiction which I love, however, I felt like the author made a lot of leaps that I just couldn't follow. When Alice suddenly starts speaking in the Quaker style it felt strange, not natural. When she and Richard are suddenly so in love after being enemies there was not enough evidence to convince me. It was almost like they didn't have another choice so they just ended up decided to leave together. I also felt that the plot was very predictable. I also found the sex scenes to be too explicit for my taste. On a good note, I thought the idea was great...how so much was set into motion because of a lady's slipper (flower) and the lady's slippers (shoes).
