Perhaps the most lovely portion of the book is the distinguished pedigree (As some may have said in the Times of Affianced Regency-and Indian poverty and rampant imperialism) of fun Caroline Stevermer and Wrede had writing it. And, it shows.
Two Young Ladies of Quality - i.e. Cecelia (Wrede) and Kate (Stevermer)-are the narrators, and as this is an epistolary novel its "writers". They may be a little easy to mix up, but as long as you pay mind to it... it won't be too dreadful.
(Personally, I disliked the love interests. Certainly the Marquis, tho' I did not not like James. Unfortunately the writers seem to write Kate's...(?) romance more.)

Anyway, it is a fine, lovely, escapist, and almost fluffy adventure.

Feather-light and rather entertaining epistolatory novel set in England just after the Napoleonic wars. Moderately but not intrusively Austenesque.

I love the way this was written, not in the usual style but in letters. A die-hard fantasy addict, this was a wonderful read for me >.<

It had some pacing issues and a few continuity problems, but it was pretty entertaining overall. It was really predictable for me, but I'm just a bit older than the target audience.

A very interesting sweet little book with the added benefit of being an interesting exercise in writing as it is a set of letters written between two people.

"Not really" I said and spilt my chocolate on her.
