All characters are flawed. A fair plot with strong, if flawed characters.
This was not the best work by this author. The pace was far too slow. Mostly set in Italy where an American millionaire pursues a mysterious woman. The author writes in a clear style but he could have skipped the class on Italian classical culture.
A romantic comedy set in the late nineteenth century. Excellent plot where the hero, who is an ex soldier, goes incognito as the stable groom for the woman he loves.
I would give five stars except for the writer's point of view.
A strong man stands up to a ruthless cattle baron.
