I liked this one better than the first one. It is one of those books that pull you in, and keep you in till the end. And I didn’t want it to end. This is one of those books where I wish the author would wait till all the books are written, and published before they release so I don’t have to wait so long to read the next one. I’m ready for the next book in this series NOW.
The background is what really makes this story so great. The men in the village don’t really know how to deal with all the changes, because they never had to do much thinking before. The women are having a hard time adjusting to the changes too, but in different ways.
The main character Noll has done a bit of growing up and I like her more in this book.
About the book:
Nobody’s Lady (Never Veil #2) by Amy McNulty
Publication Date: April 12, 2016
For the first time in a thousand years, the men in Noll’s village possess the freedom to love whom they will. In order to give each man the chance to fully explore his feelings, the lord of the village decrees all marriages null and void until both spouses declare their love for one another and their desire to wed again. What many women think will be a simple matter becomes a source of village-wide tension as most men decide to leave their families and responsibilities behind.
Rejected by the lord and ashamed of her part in the village’s history, Noll withdraws from her family and lives life as an independent woodcarver. This changes when her sister accuses her of hiding her former husband Jurij from her—and when Jurij eventually does ask to move in. Determined not to make the same mistakes, Noll decides to support her male friends through their new emotional experiences, but she’s soon caught up in a darker plot than she ever dared imagine possible from the men she thought she knew so well. And the lord for whom she still has feelings may be hiding the most frightening truth of them all.
