I reached the middle of this novel but I declare myself unable to finish itOne of the problems I ve found with it is the little sympathy I feel for the characters I can t stand them All seem to be kids inmature and not enough developed The fact that two grown up men can gamble their future going to war no and no less while playing cards seem ridiculuos for meUntil this moment over the plot has been predictable and I think I can imagine the end she and Dickon are going to live happily ever after right and not really amusing Sometimes I have found myself just turning pages in an attempt to give the novel a second chance but it was in vain I couldn t even find the love partIn conclusion since after 200 pages it has left me completely indifferent I uit reading it

A Story of Growing Up in France Before the Revolution and Finding a Love Thought LostPhilippa Carr is the historical romance author you may know as Victoria Holt also a pen name This is 10 in her 20 book Daughters of England series but can be read as a stand aloneSet in the late 18th century beginning in England in 1767 it tells of beautiful Charlotte d Aubigne Lottie who when she was twelve learned her real father was a French comte and her home was to be in France She does not want to leave her beloved English home nor does she want to leave Dickon the boy she has always adored and wanted to marry But she is young and her English mother and French father decide Dickon is not the best choice So they take her away to Louis XV s France and to her father s great estateAs the years pass Lottie forgets her youth and becomes emerged in all things French and the tumultuous times that follow the American War New love comes to her in the person of Charles de Tourville a man who though inconstant loves Lottie But he wants to fight for America s liberty so encouraged by Dickon who has been a constant guest Charles leaves Lottie in France with their two children and goes off to fight Lottie is consoled by her family and her friend Lisette a bastard like herselfThis is a story steeped in the tumultuous history of the times and provides a tale of jealousy and betrayal on many levels Lottie has a very practical nature that allows her to change from her idealistic youth to a mature acceptance of the weaknesses in others And coming full circle she returns to England for a visit where Dickon still remembers herIf you like Victoria Holt s mysteries this might appeal It did to me Told from the first person you are always only in Lottie s mind but you know the thoughts of others as they reveal them I liked the detail and the complicated relationships but the romance was a bit disappointing possibly because neither Charles nor Dickon was a compelling hero It seemed both were knaves And the passion seemed to be on their part than Lottie s A compelling figure was her father the comte Still it s a very good read and there are some exciting scenes as the country moves toward the Revolution
