There was less drama in this one then I expected, so when the violent drama does happen it's a bit of a shock. I liked both Tom and Sarah. This book seemed a little slow, or at least they seemed to have more time together without a lot of drama than I expected them to have. This one is an historical novel, but I'm not completely sure about the timeline. It's after a war, I'm assuming either WWI or WWII but the book never says one way or the other.
