Historical love story that is beautifully written and 'feels' like an historical. The sibling relationship between Rachel and Constance and also their home life reminded me very much of characters from a Jane Austen novel such as Pride and Prejudice or Sense and Sensibility. If you enjoy those kinds of books you'll find this one a treat. More please.
I chanced on the authors short stories by accident and was hooked from the first read. I couldn't wait for the novel - am I disappointed? No! This novel is well crafted with the 18th century brought to life in this tale of love, tragedy and scandal. I could not put it down and am now re-reading it. I hope more works from Bronwyn are on their way. This should be on everyone's reading list.
