Another Downton Abbeyesque story and setting. Easy reading, predictable characters, and a cultural study of family life in these times. Entertaining read. ( )
  readyreader | Aug 16, 2018 |
Rather predictable, perhaps, -- and such character development as there is is rather slight -- but the pages keep turning, and the final resolution of matters (despite a treacherous twist or two) is fully satisfying. ( )

Enjoyable 1840s soap opera! ( )
  bookhookgeek | Jun 12, 2018 |
Well-plotted easy-read story set in the 1840s. James, a successful man in trade, knows he has a grandson, but to acknowledge him would be to dishonour his dead daughter. And following the death of her son at Waterloo an aristocratic woman knows the family seat will go to an undeserving nephew. Slowly the fate of the two families become entwined.

Interesting story, full of historical domestic detail and well-drawn characters, with plenty of upstairs / downstairs intrigue. ( )

A story of the upper-crust in England colliding with those not in their world, and how they face the reality of life. It's a story where the outcome is predictable from early on in the book, but nonetheless enjoyable to read.
However, something puzzles me: how can a young woman (Sophia) just disappear? Didn't she have any friends, no family? What about the rest of the household? She comes back from Brussels, is whisked off with her mother a few months later to hide her pregnancy, dies somewhat alone, and then just pooof... gone. ( )
