Such an unbelievably easy book to read,I flew through it in the same day. It was quick to read in that there was no lingering over chapters and long drawn out times in Milly's life,it was so fast paced. Tho saying that it was far too rushed at the end,you knew she would meet up with someone from her past eventually and when she clapped eyes on him that was it,story solved the end!
At least give us a chapter or epilogue! Jan 22, Ria rated it it was amazing. A lovely romantic story telling the tale of Millicent Ash.

An indulged and very much beloved child Jane is allowed anything her heart desires by A lovely romantic story telling the tale of Millicent Ash.
