    I ve been told by just about every reader who s read this romance classic that it s a sad story and a very upsetting one at that because of the ending, well I have to strongly disagree It s exceptionally moving and my hat s off to the author for thinking out of the romance box for once That said, I love a good heart wrenching cry and a tragic story and I m not saying this one is or isn t because I really think it depends on what you expect out of a romance novel If you re on the side that I ve been told by just about...
