Mariana by Susanna Kearsley

Mariana was a good read; a little on the predictable side but with a few twists and turns to keep it interesting.
The style of the author was similar to that of others in the genre - a romance that is never straight forward with historical context both social and national thrown in for background colour.
It was good, not great but a decent book to while away the hours and keep one's brain from turning to sludge.
I look forward to reading more from Susanna Kearsley.
