Readable story, quite interesting; but doesn't grab the reader's attention. Some of the US spellings are irritating, when this story is set in Georgian England! (draft, colored, paneled, practicing, skillful, favors, gotten) Other spellings are just weird (some'ut, haypennies - summat, ha'pennies) Even so, I reached the end, so it must be ok, hence 3 stars.
The book takes us through Lizzie's affairs with men of importance - showing the glamorous but sordid life led by Cyprians during this era.
Charles Fox is brought to life and his sweet tolerant charm is a perfect foil for the kindly Mrs Armistead.
I hope this writer chooses other historical characters to write about - although we have quite a few books about Nell Gwynn I think this author could do her justice.
I felt as though I had been transported through history and greatly enjoyed reading of times where freedom and fun had not given way to modern po faced morality.
A wonderful love story where trust and loyalty are pitted against the morals of the day.
