So she takes all her courage together, after selling another piece of her home, to knock on the door of her neighbors to ask about Tom, the boy from her journal.

Her character was not at all consistent – at times I found her to be far too boring, placid, and even weak, while at other times she showed doir strength of character and will that did not at all ring true with the weak Victoria that we had just encountered a page or paragraph before.

Return to Book Page. There was reprieve from this line in the form of the hero caring about his Railway and about political issues but these seemed like an afterthought. A nice little story. There is a slow burn between them as far as intimacy goes, as David follows her wishes and slowly familiarizes her, but all in all the two remain separate for the biggest part of the story and only solve their problems at the very end.
