5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed this more each time I've read it, 8 May 2014
This is the third time I’ve read this book, although the last time was nearly 20 years ago. I found I had forgotten most of the plot, other than the bare outline, and – eventually – a little of what led to the satisfying conclusion. But I found it as engrossing and enjoyable as I did the first time, if not more.

The background is historical – America in Napoleon’s time – and the plot potentially a little cliched: two almost identical cousins, the daughters of identical twins, switch places so that one can carry out a dangerous mission. The other takes part in a marriage of convenience and, not surprisingly, finds herself attracted to her cousin’s husband. But the writing is fresh, the sub-plots exciting, and this most unlikely scenario seems believable and real. Recommended to anyone who likes light historical fiction.
