A well-written and extremely enjoyable story with two likeable and rounded lead characters. The interplay between Sophie's brothers adds an excellent exta-dimension. But when, oh when, will American writers learn that - if they must set their novels in England and particularly in an historical period - there are things we don't say now, let alone two hundred years ago.
For example, walking 'a few blocks'; having 'a passel of children'; a servant, or indeed anyone, called Joleen ... and so on. Please Ms Burrowes, if you don't know what's right and what isn't, employ someone who does.
