I am also increasingly infuriated by the Americanisms that would be out of place in a contemporary English novel, let alone one purporting to be set in Victorian high society. People simply wouldn't have talked about "figuring thing out", waiting until "the Fall", asking if they could "visit with" each other and worst of all calling an attendant in the British Museum a "docent"!
I'll probably finish it but only because I've got this far and want to know what happened but I am losing the will to live...
For example, Lady Emily has a follower who keeps breaking into her home and leaving her nice little bits of jewelry, letters, notes, flowers and so forth. Is this person a villain? Not sure, because someone is definitely trying to do her harm. She also has a supposedly descendant of the Dauphin, Charles Berry, who is setting himself up to be the next Monarch of France and wants her to be his mistress - he's a total jerk. And, there's her sweet little friend, Isabelle, whose mama is setting Isabelle up to be the wife of this future wanna be King. Isabelle's in love with another man who just won't seem to step up to the plate even though Emily does her best to interfere and get them together.
Then Emily's good friend, Ivy, is having issues in her marriage with Robert. Again, Emily interferes to the best of her ability, but Emily has major difficulties of her own. It seems her reputation is in serious trouble because folks are accusing her of having a liaison with her long time friend, Jeremy Sheffield, Duke of Bainbridge, which of course isn't true.Read more ›

Read this book. Full of details. I found I needed to read these books rather than skim them as you are liable to miss a point which will be explained further on. Brilliant story. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Van
Very enjoyable and unusual. The principal character is a one-off. I had already read the book that follows on, which is why I ordered this one. Read morePublished on 28 Aug. 2014 by Jean Neal
