I have read a number of author, Ann H. Gabhart's novels and with each one I get more and more impressed with her writing. The style flows nicely, has great story lines and characters that you find yourself rooting for and I absolutely love the character development. It was no different with her most recent release, The Innocent. This was an intriguing novel, and I found myself not wanting to getting anything else done but read it, including reading late into the night! A great read that I highly recommend!
