The Ninth Daughter - Barbara Hamilton I slogged through this book. And the really frustrating thing is I cannot even explain why. There was nothing that would have made it bad book, or even a slow read for me, but for some reason I just slogged through it. It was really a chore to finish. I had such high hopes when I began it, but they were all soon dashed. I was considering trying again with the remaining books in the series, but I think I will give them a go unless they come up as Kindle Freebies.
