I'm not sure if I've ever read a Christian Romance set in the Holy Land. This one wan't the typical formula for romance either. By adding an aristocrat with nothing to do with his time but to create social experiments, the entire romance had a touch of mystery in it.
I'll admit. I did find that parts dragged a bit, most in the detail of the history of whatever site the travelers were at. But that aside, the fact that it didn't follow a formula, kept my attention. I was quickly engrossed into Bianca's journey. And Paul's. And even Sir Adrian's experiment.
Yet, I didn't necessarily like Sir Adrian's experiment. At times, it seemed cruel and unnecessary. Sure, I guess it showed human nature, but still, I didn't like it. And yes, it was necessary to the story.
Still, this was a pretty good read. It was interesting and different. Not at all what I expected when I looked at the cover.
I received a free pdf copy of this book from Worthy Publishers for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
