Setting: Sussex January 1890
This novel is in the same visit to Sussex as in the novella Silent Night. A newborn baby is found in the stable at Belmont Abbey, and it is up to Lady Julia to learn who abandoned him and why. There are some accompanying small mysteries: a ghost; missing jewelry; and the reason the Earl March is so depressed. Despite these facets, the novella is largely uneventful. However, the main event is important in the Lady Julia Grey story arc.
Aside from the stingy length and the dearth of action, there are no inconsistencies in established characters, and new ones are well done. The narration continues fine in this book, and it is appreciated that the same narrator has been used throughout the series.
Very good audiobook! I don't usually go for the historical books but this was very good but short!
