Yay Juliette! Thanks for responding. That's exactly the way I felt as I was reading the book. The second book is titled Tatiana and Alexander
and the third is The Summer Garden
. I haven't yet received them from Amazon so I'm (impatiently) waiting until I can read them.
I did find myself at times wondering why Tatiana didn't just say forget it, I'm going to be with him. I mean they were in the middle of war, time is short, carpe diem and all that. However, I try to remember what a strong person Tatiana was, and how morally driven her decision making process was. I know it was only a book, but those character traits are kind of rare.
Any more thoughts?
