It's a tiny little book that could be read in one day.. One of those stories that makes you feel like you're living in its time period and you know its characters. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone but if you're in the mood for a dark and twisted love story (who isn't??), this one's a good bet.
Favorite passage: "We didn't move. She seemed to be drinking me in, breathing in my heart. As for me, by the time I let her go I knew I had already begun to love her less." - Fire in the Blood
