HOWEVER I HONESTLY WOULD HAVE PREFERREDI honestly would have preferred have Just Read Zarita S StoryIn Addition I read Zarita s storyIn addition I that the story telling bordered on melodramatic I don t think that every chapter didn t need to end with cliffhangers in the way they did This historical novel set mostly in Spain in the 15th century follows the journey of two very different characters whose lives are strangely connected Zarita is a very spoilt girl who nwittingly causes the execution of Saulo s father Saulo himself is sent away on a "SHIP AND AS HE GROWS UP "and as he grows The Tycoons Reluctant Cinderella up plots his revenge against Zarita s family The story is told from both points of view Zarita tells of the horrors of the Inuisition and Saulo s of his life at seaWith this the idea of the two different stories should have been really interesting to read about but I found Saulo s half rather boring and just dragged myself through it No offense to Saulo but I didn t really want to know about life on a ship when the other tale was of the Inuisition and public punishment every day terror I think this could haveite easily been just one story Zarita s I definitely would have enjoyed it if it hadZarita s half involves a wicked Step Mother the loss of her mother and of course what it s like to estioned by the Inuisition Zarita although spoilt is a very likeable character for me because she does her best to help others just like her Mother When Saulo is sent away after his Father dies she goes out of her way to find his Mother and look after her in her final days Her character just gets stronger throughout the.
