A Waltz at Midnight 3. It wasn't a bad story, it just was rather unremarkable. It's a quick read--well under pages--but even so I thought it could have used a lot more development The concept was cute Cinderella-ish story partly told through an exchange of letters and had a lot of promise, it just didn't feel as if it quite delivered all it could have.
It wasn't nearly as satisfying as I had hoped. The author thanked her in-laws in her acknowledgements for watching her children for a weekend so she could write this, and it felt like a story that was written in a weekend. I couldn't help but think that with a little more revision and tweaking, it could have been a much more satisfying story in the end.

Anonymous More than 1 year ago. I got interested in the servant Susanna and her brother who lost a leg in the Civil War but at the end--bang band--hero finds out a fact he didn't know--and met a woman he'd met only in letters but bang--bang--no anger at deception, nothing about brother's lot in the future, nothing--just END! SO I was left feeling hungry and unsatisfied!
