    It started out quite promising, as the author was capable of good writingbut unfortunately not great plot building The characters actions feel contrived and forced, as though they were doing what they were told b c it was in the storyline, not because of how it would otherwise go with them There was also no need for the instantaneous hatred of Lorna Darcy by the professor Elizabeth just because he happened to accidentally ram into her with his suitcase Seriously, is there a worse reas It started out quite promising, as the author was capable of good writingbut unfortunately not great plot building The characters ac...
