A Strange Story 10 April 2013
By J. Ashton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I kept reading this book long after I was tired to death of it, hoping the main character would show some brains, some character, some unselfishness. However, two stars for the general picture of the Edwardian London theatrical world and those inhabiting it. I got the book for free, so I can't complain too much. Perhaps I will try another of MacKenzie's books, since this was an early effort. He is mainly known for Monarch of the Glen, which may be a better story.

This story was disjointed, emphasizing odd things, failing to pull together isolated stories, with an occasional nice bit of description. But soap-opera in general is not attractive to me, and people making stupid decisions year after year get very tiresome. That the main character ignores the family of her birth for her entire saga, almost 20 years, and then suddenly invites her mother to stay with her at her manor, and no comment is made on the oddity of this, is one example of the quirkiness of the book. Steer clear.
