The Unholy Matrimony of Milo Albryght

I wrote this book for my Senior Project in high school. Like all authors, I tend to be harsh on it, but my friends tell me that it is worth reading.
It takes place in old England. It's a romance story between a young man who loathes the woman he's arranged to marry and the young woman whose path briefly crosses with his and changes his life.
The book is very short (thinner than your pinkie finger) and most people read it in one or two sittings. Sadly, due to a publishing problem, the text is a little bit small.
I found the book at work and was intrigued. I read it quickly and was very impressed. The author is young but with practice will easily rate with a Dickens or Bronte. I really enjoyed the book but would have liked more information about the daily interactions and trials of these characters during the long gaps in the tale. Also, the two weeks spent in the woods together. Exactly, how did Midnight train Milo? How did she learn so well if she ran away at such an early age? How is it that someone with such a terrible family life could learn to trust this stranger so easily? Also, How did Adelphia finally turn around and see how her evil behavior hurt herself & Milo. I didn't like how everyone had a happy ending, especially Adelphia. I would have liked to see her old and lonely because of her young foolishness. Or at least be punished more severely.
I would like to keep the book, but will pass it on because that is what this is all about. And also so the young writer will be recognized when she is published professionally.
