This is the last of a five book series which centers around an Anglo Jewish family during the Napoleonic wars The first four books were absolutely terrific all solid 4 45 star reads The author is a skilled and talented writer and her books are as much riveting historical fiction as romance And reat spy stories as well The hero of this book Nathan has been a key figure in the other four books He is enigmatic and fascinating and a brilliant English spy with numerous talents and abilities that the author makes believable He is older the father of the protagonists in two of the other books So his story should be the culminating one the So Far from the Sea great ending to an unforgettable seriesSadly the book was a disappointment to me The book begins in 1815 right as Napoleon escapes from Elba and returns in triumph to France England and France currently have a truce Nathan the British spy most wanted by France is now able to openly travel to France to escort Abigail the heroine and her daughter back to England as a favor to his family This should be areat romance with an older hero and heroine who have both suffered loss and face life with wisdom and maturity The problem is Abigail She has real and serious scandal in her past something she knowingly caused As a result her daughter was taken away from her In my opinion this should make Abigail compassionate understanding and forgiving of other s faults Instead she s highly judgmental and rigid and intolerant And she remains that way almost until the last page She is completely unlikable Further she has a distaste for soldiers and spies that. As news of Napoleon's escape from Elba reaches England a legendary spymaster discovers his own heart has become a battlefieldWhen Nathan Meyer agrees to escort a young woman home from France he discovers too late that his family has been matchmaking yet again He has no interest in the flirtatious and pampered Diana Hart.
