Having read the first 2 books in this series, and becoming totally hooked, I was thrilled when Voyager arrived. I have not been disappointed. It is pure magic. At first glance you take a moment to wonder how on earth you will read 1000 pages of small print. Goodness, it's so worth it. So much glorious detail, so much historical content mixed with thrills, spills and the most beautiful love story. I previously have had no time for soppy love stories..this isn't sloppy..this is pure genius. The depth of feeling it evokes is unbelievable. I have laughed, cried, had to stop reading because of the emotional impact of the writing. Yes, I am addicted to these books.
