Review: I didn't enjoy this book. It's set in a time period where a woman's only place in society is to be the property of men. Although, I did enjoy the time and setting of the book. I thought the plot was slow in a lot of places. I had also figured out the major plot twist regarding Maggie's mother really early on, which made it slow and predictable. My main problem though was that I didn't like Maggie as a character. I thought she was shallow, annoying and clueless most of the time, although I do have to say I liked her a little more towards the end. Tom was by far my favorite character, he seemed absolutely clueless to the social structures of society which I really liked. I think I would have liked this story a lot more if had been set in a more modern time period, although it wouldn't have really worked the same. i appreciate what the author was trying to do, it just wasn't my favorite.
