WL: Bluebells was truly a great book. I had read no synopsis beforehand and was pleasantly surprised to find it written in a style befitting its setting. The speech patterns were all there as well. I also appreciate that McShane didn't attempt to emulate the accent for the era as it could have come off as cheesy considering the time the story was set.
The flow the story was very good and each chapter, if it was set in another character's point of view, was clearly labeled for less confusion.
As for the characters, I loved Sorcha! Her reactions were realistic with a proper amount of courage and I'm fascinated by her history. The lore in the book is more than interesting and the mysteries are worth trying to unravel! Rory will become more interesting, I'm sure, as the series progress. He's been through some trials but I would enjoy more development of his personality. The book doesn't really center on him as much as Sorcha, however, so it is not anywhere near a grievance for the story.
I highly recommend this book as a historical fantasy for my friends and family sincerely for the romantic setting and course of events that don't just happen in a week, but over the span of years! *That* is a realistic timeline and I enjoy it!
