The writing is beautiful. Really became attached to the characters especially Paul and Loring. Adore Paul and Loring!!! Loved the different POV. The first half of the book is flawless in my opinion; however the second half..not so much. The "misunderstanding" took waaay too long to resolve. Gah! I felt like pulling my hair out! For this reason, I became quite irritated with Eliza. That being said, I still really enjoyed the book and glad I read it!
