Give this a chance
I admit I had a little trouble getting into this story. Lots of characters from the aristocracy and figuring out everyone's place was a bit tedious. However, once the foundation of the story was laid out, I found the plot interesting and the characters enjoyable. In particular, I really enjoyed our heroine who is gently raised and carries herself with the utmost self-respect , but is also quite the little scrapper. .....do not underestimate her. Take a chance on this one. A good start to a promising series.

I was looking for an entertaining read. I found that, and more.
What a relief to listen to a great book when it rains. Well developed story and excellent execution by the narrator. I couldn't quite guess the end, which is unusual. Refreshingly upbeat and sufficiently suspenseful, this book is the first of many I hope to find waiting for me. My compliments to the author.
