My spin: Leana was a good Christian who did a bad thing for she did not know Rose loved Jamie. I do not think she would have done what she did if she had known. She would have stepped aside and pined for Jamie from a distance for the rest of her days. Though Leana did sit on the repentance stool, how could she truly be regretful for the sin that brought the son she cherished into being? As for Rose, I did not realize the depth of her character until the second book, but perhaps that comes with growing up. As for Jamie, he was caught in the middle of it all, and I do not blame him for being angry at Leana for her deception, which separated him from who he believed to be the love of his life forever. One could also say if Leana were truly unselfish, she would have wanted Jamie to be happy, even if it was not with her. Leana did not do what she did to save Rose from being "unreadily married", but to entrap Jamie, hoping with enough patience and sacrifice, he would come to love her. I would say that was a pretty big gamble on her part.

Anyway, I was sad when Rose died at the end, even though it meant Jamie and Leana could be together again. Never in this life could Jamie satisfy both demands for his love, and, contrary to popular Mormon belief, polygamy is NOT the answer. Sometimes we must sacrifice our own happiness to let others have theirs, or the happiness that is rightfully theirs. But does that mean we shall never known happiness again? Of course not. We were happy once, we can be happy again, just as if we loved once, we can love again.

Aside from all of this, the likenesses of the characters are perfect, for they look just as they do in my imagination.

And I love the authentic flavor of the Scottish brogue.

Well done!

As for Grace in Thine Eyes (Davina's story), all I can say is that Liz has done it again. It is truly one of the most beautiful, heartbreaking love stories I have ever read.
