I can tell Jody Hedlund did a lot of research for this book: the correct outfits, the way they talk, even how to catch fleas! I appreciate that, but I don’t feel she built her characters at all. They fell kind of flat with me, and I didn’t connect to the characters or the budding romance. I also felt like Katharina’s personality would change throughout the book.
This is definitely not a book for teens. There were several mentions of rape and girls losing their virginity. There was also a marriage bed scene that made me very uncomfortable.
I probably won’t be reading another Jody Hedlund book. I’ve tried several times and haven’t enjoyed them.
