The 12th Enchantment

Author: David Liss
Stars: 1
Review by: ddlesmom

Lucy Derrick is a young woman of good breeding and poor finances. After the death of her beloved father, she is forced to maintain a shabby dignity as the unwanted boarder of her tyrannical uncle, fending off marriage to a local mill owner. But just as she is on the cusp of accepting a life of misery, events take a stunning turn when a handsome stranger   the poet and notorious rake Lord Byron   arrives at her house, stricken by what seems to be a curse, and with a cryptic message for Lucy. Suddenly her unfortunate circumstances are transformed in ways at once astonishing and seemingly impossible."

Characters were shallow, book did not hold my interest.  Story was unbelievable.
