What a Romantic and gripping tale! A woman shunned and a man looking for answers that find solace in each other. Mrs. Ball is a very talented writer and has a great way of making you feel like you know the characters, in such a short space of time. It normally takes me 50 pages to start liking characters, not 35 to feel for them! This in my opinion is a great feat.As always with novella's I'm left wanting more and wondering about characters past and futures. I do hope we can see more of Dancing Cat and Bearclaw in the future!I am truly honoured that I got to review this novella and such a unique historical romance will not be forgotten.
