Has A Lot Of Mistakes
on 1 August 2017
This was a pretty good story but I almost gave up a few times as it has a lot of mistakes all the way through which wore me down. I had seen some reviewers bleating that it wasn't true to 19th century San Francisco.....like any of them were around then to argue the toss about it ! So I ignored that and that worked just fine for me.
But lines like "...the conjunction of the both the moon and Venus"....is an obvious error in my eyes and someone should have spotted it There were a lot of apostrophes being misplaced, curtsy spelt that way and then also curtsey, chagrinned and not chagrined, fiance not fiancee......sigh.......
Gentlemen was used instead of gentleman, we heard about Nate's younger sister, then we learn she's his only sister then he refers to her as his youngest sister !! Parley was used and not parlay and crape and not crepe, twice used insure and not ensure, pour and not pore, discernable and not discernible, take and not taking and she also suddenly spells Sibyl as Sybil !!! That's pretty unforgivable and I can't believe this many mistakes found their way to the finished article.
I grew a little bored of Amelia dropping everything all the time. There were some highly amusing moments in it here and there. I got a kick out of the ending with the three women. That was brilliantly executed. I have the second book downloaded but I hope it's better edited. I hope perhaps Annie and Nate continue to be pals as well and not falling out !!
