Tessa's voice is unique and I like her character. She is a refreshing modern contrast to William de Chaucey's old fashioned tales.
Somehow I didn't believe the romance between Tessa and William. For starteers, I never did get a feel for William and as a reader, I have to be a little in love with the hero to be glad for the heroine to fall in love with him.
I would like to have seen a show-down with the Norn and also see Tessa show some signs of the paranormal strength that is hinted at but not played on.
I wanted to see more of what happened as a result of the Norn fates and the evil Grey Lily tampering with the tapestry threads. Just changing her father's health and friend's loyalty weren't enough for me.
The idea that Tessa and WIlliam's threads are tied together and that they keep weaving around each other through the ages. I wanted more of that idea.
Bottom line - a handful of intriguing ideas but the story fell short of my expectations--I wanted more. I have no major qualms about the writing or content. It's a clean read with no swearing and one borderline romance scene.
