Flowers from the Storm

Flowers from the Storm - Laura Kinsale Interesting historical romance story. Very good prose and attention, on the author's part, to deliver rounded characters. I think she really succeeded with the heroine of the story, and the whole culture, station and religion beliefs clash was really interesting. In addition, she treats such delicate subjects with care and does not elevate one side of the argument above the other.

The only part I thought weaker was the ending, while I liked the inevitable epilogue, the way the story got there didn't convince me, after all the care put in weaving it and its themes, I expected a less rushed and lukewarm wrapping up. However, heartily recommended to all fans of historical romance novels.
