Received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. 
 
This book was given to me by the author for a free review. I enjoyed this book very much. Jocelyn and Jackson are wonderful together and I love their stories. I do not want to get into to much detail because I do not want to give anything away. I love how Jocelyn and Jackson come together in 2009 and how he is there solely for her.If you are looking for a great YA romance, this is definitely a book you should read. There are a couple of things that I did not like about the book. 1. Jocelyn's servant, Mimi,was a very likeable character. However, the way she speaks is a bit much. I understand in 19th century that grammar was different in every aspect from what it is today, but I had a hard time really understanding what the character, Mimi, was trying to say. 2. I felt that this story seemed to go on and on. It would build up and build up, and I was so ready for Jocelyn to discover what was truly going on in her life.Then, like several times before, I was disappointed because something happened and she was unable to get answers. Over all the book was good. The author used great imagination while writing this book. I am curious as to what Enlightened, the second book in this series, has to offer. Thank you for allowing me to read it. :)
