This review is from: The Making of a Marchioness (Paperback)
A real comfort book - it never fails to cheer. The first part is the story of how the simply good Emily Fox-Seton carries off a huge matrimonial prize from under the noses of younger, richer and more beautiful women by being completely herself and thinking of others first. I know, it sounds very po-faced - but is actually immense fun and so heartwarming! The second part of the book, when Emily is installed as a marchioness facing pregnancy and evil relations alone is less perfect, but has wonderfully amusing and desprately touching episodes. One of those rare books that are utterly unchallenging, enjoyable to read and leave you feeling warmer and brighter than when you started.
