Anyone else read this? I got through it in a day, I loved it that much.

Yeah I've read it. I loved the concept - and the cover, but thought it didn't quite deliver. Some bits were great, but I thought it was a bit unbalanced - the army wife part was too long and for me at least, the least interesting character. I loved the first two sections but thought it trailed off a bit after that.

Love books where different chapters are from different characters point of view though.

yes, you're right about that. The best bit was the section up to the farmer's tale, and it did go downhill after that. However, it's so seldom that I enjoy new books, it was a treat.

Oh dear. I really didn't rate it at all and was thinking about how much I didn't enjoy it today. I liked the premise but that was it. Sorry! I just found the characters cliched and didn't believe in them.
