    Hm. I've been thinking about what to write since I finished this. Since there was no review, I wanted to be sure to write one, so here goes.I read another of Anne Carsley's book when I was a kid, and rediscovered it and found out that she, too, was from Mississippi. So I looked up the rest of her books. There are only a handful, and I ordered several of them. This is the first one I read, and it was a decent read, but very typical of its times, the early 80s.Pros- This book was set in ancient Crete and the surrounding areas, with a journey to England. The setting is what initially brought me to this book, since it is unusual for a romance. There is also a bunch of interesting material regarding Goddess worship and the Minoan bulls. Cons-Being from the early 80s, there is an unfortunately rapey element to the book. And the lead characters falling in love was rather difficult to swallow since, other than sex, they had little meaningful interaction with each other that did not involve drawing apart from one another after intimacy.The book dragged a bit in the middle and at that point I would have agreed with the two-star reviews. The action picked up towards the finish and although the end seemed a little rushed, it wrapped up well and I was pleased enough to go ahead and give it three stars.If you like unusual settings and 80s style romance, you will probably enjoy this book. If the idea of rape absolutely turns you off, you should skip this book.
