Scandalous Lovers

Scandalous Lovers - Robin Schone Historical romance is NOT my thing. Too much bodice ripping for my tastes. So, why did this book tug, rip and pull at me? The 1880's women's movement is something I didn't quite appreciate until I read this. Schone poured these pages with historical details and emotional angst that made me angry, sympathetic and, in the end, very appreciative of the liberties I enjoy today. Even more, she brought very real problems related to couples over fifty. A nice change from the pert, naive twenty-somethings that populate today's romantic fiction.
