She's a little nasty at first, even when she doesn't know that Elizabeth is a witch hunter, but as soon as the book spends more time with her I began to love her character. She's fierce and unapologetic and her personality stands out so much in comparison to Elizabeth's. She becomes a great friend, too, and I would not complain at all if we got a novella from her point-of-view. The other highlight is the main love interest, John. He's gentle and patient, which makes sense as a healer, and he blushes. I wish we had gotten more page time with him, but he definitely had my heart aflutter. Boecker developed her characters in a way that isn't seen very often within a single book.
