The Best of Times by Penny Vincenzi
This was my first book by Penny Vincenzi. I believe that I downloaded it based on a blurb that I read in Bookmarks magazine. After I finished, I decided to look the author up and read some reviews of her other books. It seems like her fans found this book to be less impressive than her other work. For this reason, I think I will try her again. I liked this storyline and the characters that she created, but it definitely dragged for me. I think I would have liked it a lot more if she had cut about 300 pages (and I think she could have easily done so). It was good, not great...3/5 stars for me.
