If a book is intended for the English market then surely it isn't too much to ask that words are spelt the English way particularly when the storyline is about 19th century English aristocracy. I think phrases like 'your point is' are too up-to-date and words like 'gotten' are not used in England.
The storyline was very static with no substantial content and it could be predicted all the way through what would happen in the end. To me the storyline was not particularly believable given that it was set 200 years ago: things happened that just would not have happened then.
If you just want a not particularly taxing book and don't care that Americanisms scream from every page (although the author is English) then this book could be for you.
