Wonderful prose! A.E Walnofer's characters are witty and real, and they come to life in a rich 18th century English setting fraught with the mundane dilemma's of both the wealthy and the servant class. Highly recommended for readers who love a good historical novel that sweeps you back to that place and time and puts you into the lives of characters you wish you could meet.

Well-written, entertaining and manages to be lighthearted and thought provoking at the same time. I liked the main characters (I never enjoy a book if I don't like the people in it), and disliked the ones I was supposed to dislike. Would happily read more by this author

This is a satisfying and beautiful story. From the details of even minor characters and moments to the thrill of how it all ends. I was delighted by this story and how the characters changed as the world around them did. If you love books and toasted cheese sandwiches, this witty book is for you.

A truly delightful read! I loved the emotional investment into several of the characters and the drama of their circumstances. A.E. Walnofer brought me from tears to laughter several times as I read this book and I couldn't put it down! I would recommend this book to anyone looking for entertainment with wholesome, family-friendly values and true development of maturity in the characters and their decision making.

Review by: Sarah Silas on June 10, 2015 :
This novel is both beautifully written and entertaining. Refreshingly earthy and human, yet fittingly sophisticated and real to the setting. I appreciate the originality of the story, the realness of the characters, and the entertaining-yet-thought-provoking plot line. I would highly recommend this novel, it is a wonderful read and a good edition to any library.

This is a thoroughly engrossing story. At first I felt it dragged a little bit, but then the story picked up and never fell.

I I recommend it eagerly.
