Ivie meets Silas at a cigar bar and immediately judges him for being rich but he turns out to be pretty decent.
He tells her he’s leaving to the Old Country and won’t be back so their romance will be brief if she accepts.
This was so sad and depressing at times that I almost gave up reading it, knowing that things were destined to end bad but I couldn’t help myself and finished it in one night.
I’m not sure how this book even plays into the rest of the series, if it does at all. We only encounter any of the series other known characters briefly so it’s puzzling me how it connects. I guess we’ll see on April 10th when The Thief is released.
