|The name of this book has been changed to Widow 1881.
I really enjoyed this book. It is not what I normally read but maybe I should change that. The book to me read almost like a diary. It was written in first person. You really got to know Jane Weber, all of her thoughts and feelings were really laid out. A few times I even had a tear in my eye. Sara Dahmen has done a wonderful job with this story. It really jumped off the pages. Her descriptions were very lifelike but yet there wasn't so much description that I got bored or skipped paragraphs. I really enjoyed the book and the setting.
Bostonian Jane Weber is recently widowed at a young age. Her marriage was not one filled with love or lust, it was more like a quiet friendship. After her husbands passing Jane wanted to get a taste of passion and during that brief moment she later finds herself to be pregnant.
