Summary From Goodreads
For the first time in a thousand years, the men in Noll’s village possess the freedom to love whom they will. In order to give each man the chance to fully explore his feelings, the lord of the village decrees all marriages null and void until both spouses declare their love for one another and their desire to wed again. What many women think will be a simple matter becomes a source of village-wide tension as most men decide to leave their families and responsibilities behind.
Rejected by the lord and ashamed of her part in the village’s history, Noll withdraws from her family and lives life as an independent woodcarver. This changes when her sister accuses her of hiding her former husband Jurij from her—and when Jurij eventually does ask to move in. Determined not to make the same mistakes, Noll decides to support her male friends through their new emotional experiences, but she’s soon caught up in a darker plot than she ever dared imagine possible from the men she thought she knew so well. And the lord for whom she still has feelings may be hiding the most frightening truth of them all.
*BOOM* That was my brain exploding, okay? I didn't review the first book, because I couldn't get my thoughts to make any kind of sense, so we'll see if I can do any better here.
This book was sooo confusing at times, and I had a hard time keeping track of what was going on. And it was kind of weird too... But I still really liked it. Makes perfect sense, right?
I got sucked into Noll's world once again, and I found myself sitting on the edge of my seat, trying to figure out what in the heck was going on. There were lots of twists and turns. It was kind of crazy all the things that were going on, and sometimes it was hard to keep track, which is why I didn't give this book a higher rating even though I really liked it... That and the fact that I found some of the characters a little annoying and in need of an attitude adjustment.
The ending of the book killed me just a little, and also left me a little confused... So now I can't wait to get the next book to see how everything is going to work itself out.
