I bought this on the back of having seen the tv series which I loved. The series bears little resemblance to the books which I already knew and was expecting and I liked the story just as much as I liked the tv equivalent but I don't care much for Ms Greenwood's writing style. Each to the their own but as big fan of period literature, I found this to be trying to imitate the style and not quite succeeding, As I said, the stories are great and you will have to make up your own mind as to whether you enjoy the writing itself or not.
