The secondary characters are just as believable as the two main ones. Rose's best friend, Hildy is a dreamer and a total romantic. Frau Gerusha is the Healer and is a strong and loving woman. Lord Rupert, the scoundrel brother of Lord Hamlin, is easy to read even when he appears to be changing his ways to win Rose. The evil Moncore was very believable and at times quite scary.
In this book we are faced with many real life choices. Rose must either follow her heart or listen to wise council from someone who knows what is best for her. When someone grows up without the love they need it is easy to fall victim to someone who is not wanting their best interest but his own. We also see that timing can play a major part in life. When we rush ahead sometimes we can mess things up. It also shows in a very interesting way the power that we are given through Jesus' name. We just need to trust Him to use it when the time is right and then not be afraid to call upon that great Name!
