Nice setting, shame about the plot
on 16 October 2013
The period and location come across atmospherically, but the plot is nonsense, and obvious nonsense at that. The reader is left with no real idea why anyone did anything - and I would include in that staying married, as it is clear that none of the three main marriages portrayed is in any sense happy and the couple about to get married don't appear to even like each other terribly much - let alone why they went to such extraordinary lengths to do it.
