The Miner's Lady is the typical Christian, historical romance with the-Romeo-and-Juliet-love twist.
While this is not my favorite genre to read in, I felt somewhat motivated to continue reading this book. It had the right blend of romance and tragic action. The characters were well defined in what they believed and desired. I loved the addition of the Italian culture (talk about swoon worthy).
I did think the story line felt a little rushed and that things happened to fall perfectly in line during some parts. Also, a few of the tragedies were a bit stiff and forced--almost cliche and predictable. Marco's (Chantel's brother) side story felt unnecessary until the end. The result of it was surprising.
This is an easy-to-read book for lovers of historical romance. I think many people would enjoy it and find satisfaction with the story line, characters, and ending. A good read for happy feelings with a side of danger.

I received this book free from Bethany House for my open and honest opinion.
