Well I am not one for sad endings... but I did like this story, and I guess I felt like she died happy at least! and he couldn't hurt her anymore... but I thought the ending was too abrupt... and somewhat confusing how it happened... here is the quote that I don't quite understand...
"You killed her, you wrecked her and left her to die in the cruel sea! The priest followed and compelled your tools to give her up, and would have brought her back to me without harm but for your black deed. Wring your hands and groan till your hard heart breaks, you are too late for any word of hers."
So I take it that Ignatius caught up with the boat that carried Rosamond and compelled Tempest's tools (men he had hired) to give her up to him... but then... why didn't Ignatuis die also? it seems strange to me... I guess he lived just to take her back to land and show Tempest?
All and all I really liked this book and just wish it had had a happier ending... although maybe that was the only way she would really know peace from Tempest.
And isn't Ignatius just wonderful! I think I fell in love with him the moment he jumped in that river :D! well Lousia May Alcott has really surprised and delighted me with this one! I will now have to read all of her others! :)(as time permits :) )
