That being said, the love story between Cassius and Aurelia is sweet. I enjoyed the banter between them especially in the scenes along the road on Aurelia's journey to her new home. These were the most dramatic scenes of the story and my favourite part of the book.
Their burgeoning romance suffers a few obstacles but they are resolved without much to do by the end.
The story is a gentle romance and would suit younger adults.
